"Reminiscence" is an "Inception" and "Dark City" wannabe. None of its ideas are very fresh, the overblown action scenes feel conspicuously out of place, and the superficial themes regarding climate crisis and societal unrest overshadow the characters.

Cool visuals & solid cast help this clunky mashup

Lisa Joy's directorial debut is a stylish sci-fi noir that is admirable in its ambition. But it's also heavy with exposition. But Hugh Jackman is committed to the weirdness of this near future that doesn't look bright.

Our story, as it is, takes place in a future where the waters have risen and the heat is on. This means people sleep all day and get things done at night - and also get everywhere via boat for the most part. And memory has become a hot commodity for Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman) and his partner, …

Okay so I'll start by saying that I have been looking forward to this movie for awhile now and now that I've had a chance to see it here are my thoughts I'm gonna start by saying this is a incredible movie no doubt you can tell everyone worked extremely hard to make it exactly what it was which was absolutely fantastic there was good action fabulous adventure and good suspense everything that a summer blockbuster is made of right down to the absolutely awesome special effects that were out of this world so much happening so little time to take it all in but while I absolutely loved this movie I must say it wasn't all good I mean yeah ofcourse the part that mattered was good and I highly praise that However there is a scene of sexual interaction that in my opinion could have either been …
