Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has peril and intense violence, including injury and death for key characters, including parents of young children. We see injured people, including battle victims and a young girl. Characters use strong language. A character is drugged, which makes him hallucinate. There's a very mild sexual situation involving a loving married couple and a brief non-explicit shot of a nursing mother.

Is It Any Good?
Even an outstanding cast, some good special effects, and an intriguing idea from a first-rate writer can't save this sci-fi thriller from a poor script and unimaginative direction. The studio's lack of confidence and its troubled history is evident in its long-delayed release and obvious cuts to take it from an R to a PG-13. If the plot sounds vaguely like Blade Runner, that is because both are based on stories by pioneering visionary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. Like Blade Runner, this story envisions a world in which identity is so blurred that even we do not know who we are. Unfortunately, though it tries to impersonate a much better movie, its ideas are lost among pedestrian chase scenes, and even a twist at the end cannot make it compelling.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
