      Duane Byrge Hollywood Reporter Stylishly scoped with ice-blue hues and smartly visualized with a forbiddingly cold design, Gattaca is an intelligently-conceived sci-fi chiller starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. Oct 25, 2019 Full Review Mike Clark USA Today An institutional hush envelops the compelling cautionary fable Gattaca as if it were muffled by a velvet lab coat. Rated: 3/4 Jan 10, 2018 Full Review Jason Bailey Vice A thoughtful hybrid of sci-fi, thriller, and character drama; to give you some idea of its high-mindedness, it not only opens with a relevant Bible verse (Ecclesiastes 7:13), but in the opening credits that follow, Gore Vidal is fifth-billed. Nov 14, 2017 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage A tremendously interesting movie that questions eugenics and beyond. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 21, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The writer-director crafts a paranoid, discriminatory world out of ripped-from-the-headlines science. Adopting a noirish mood amid an austere dystopian backdrop, it’s the sort of Orwellian vision that could only exist in a movie. Rated: 3/4 Jan 24, 2023 Full Review Jimmy Cage Jimmy Cage Movie Reviews (YouTube) A fascinating sci-fi drama that has stood the test of time with ease. The dense, romantic, somber atmosphere fits perfectly with the eerie topic that is incredibly close to us. Rated: 8/10 Dec 18, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      F Q My favorite movie of all time and more true today than 1997 when saw in theater. Incredible acting and set design. Well written with storyline that sticks with viewer. A masterpiece! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/09/24 Full Review Tobias L NUR DIE DNA ENTSCHEIDET WAS DU BIST Die Idee das man gleich bei der Geburt sein Schicksal erfährt ist herrlich und erinnert an dunkle Zeiten unsere Geschichte. Es fällt mir allerdings unglaublich schwer zu denken das Jude Law und Ethan Hawk genau gleich aussehen. Entweder sind in der Zukunft alle Blind oder einfach nur echt blöde. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/24/24 Full Review Peter S This one requires a little work from the viewer. You have to engage and connect, but if you take a moment to go with the narrative you will not be disappointed. This movie is deep, but not difficult to follow. Every part played to perfection, well written, well executed and worthy of the classic status Gattaca has created for itself. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Mahdi B Terrible, boring and just long. I have never in my life been so bored while watching any kinda of film. I didn't understand one thing that happened nor any of the characters. The lighting is beyond bad and the script makes little sense, terrible in its worst and boring at its best truly garbage. (0.9/10) Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Chuck Houck C This is the movie in which Ethan Hawke transitioned from being a movie star into an actor. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Cork B Gattica isn't a standout movie in any traditional sense of the word. It doesn't have the artsiest Oscar pretentions or biggest budget, although it has a strong cast. The exploration of the themes of eugenics overlaid with a strong engaging personal story really suck you in and hold your attention. Yeah, the budget clearly wasn't huge, but the movie never looks or feels cheap. And the movie makes you think about the morality of genetics in a personal way without preaching... it just kind of lays out a very probable future for humanity.
