The Plot of the Movie
A sci-fi thriller that serves you an unknown dish but is presented beautifully. Well, the movie seems to be set in a futuristic Miami where the coastline has sunken due to the rising tides and making this an opportunity, Jackman’s character Nick runs a business with the help of his assistant called Newton where he sells the past of people and lets them relive it.
The formula that can prepare the memories and present them before you lies with a long process where the person gets into a water tank, has a headset on and is rolled into the water to relive their cherished memories. Still, the amazing part is that this content from their minds gets projected onto a hologram and lets the host or scientists look at it and save it.
To add to the romance part in the movie, Mae, Rebecca Ferguson, claims to find her car keys and asks the scientists to help her during this time. There are certain moments wherein it feels that they are trying to flame their love, but this too goes in vain because even a beautiful cast can’t present overripe fruit. To balance the taste of this dish Saint Joey that is Daniel Wu, and corrupt Cyrus that is Cliff Curtis play the bad guys and the underworld leaders and save the script from going down the mountains.
