I was in the mood for action movie. As a sci-fi junkie, I was hoping to watch action movie that incorporated Sci-Fi. I was browsing through google for the movie genre, I stumbled upon the trailer. It looked good and so I watched.
I like William Dafoe and Glen Close since like forever ago. Its a given that its a must watch movie in my book and Noomi Rapace, I first watched her acting in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2009). She was badass then and she was badass in this movie.
This is the plot I kidnapped from Wikipedia and I edited a little to suit my brain:
In 2073, overpopulation causes a worldwide crisis, resulting in a strict one-child policy enforced by the Child Allocation Bureau (C.A.B.). When multiple children are born to one mother, all but the eldest are put into cryosleep. Karen Settman dies when she gives birth to identical septuplet (I just learned this word; hey English is not my mother tongue) sisters. Their grandfather Terrence (William Dafoe; badass! yay!) names them after the days of the week and trains them to pose as a single individual named after their mother, and to leave the house only on the day of their name. To safeguard their secret, Terrence ensures they share information on a daily basis and replicates any accident that affects one of the sisters' physical appearance. The sisters develop a system of wigs and makeup to cover any identifying features.
As Sunday returns from her job at a bank, she sees C.A.B. agents detain a child as onlookers protest. The siblings watch the recorded incident and debate turning themselves in, agreeing to continue their act.
The following day, Monday prepares her disguise as Karen, nervous about giving a presentation. At a checkpoint, Monday runs into Adrian Knowles, a C.A.B. agent who flirts with her.
At the bank, Monday's co-worker Jerry, a competitor for a promotion, hints at blackmailing her.
When Monday fails to return home, Tuesday retraces her steps. Tuesday learns Monday got the promotion and met Jerry at a bar. Before she can investigate further, C.A.B. agents detain her and cut off her communications.
Adrian sees Tuesday being escorted to a cell, where she meets Nicolette Cayman, head of the bureau and a candidate for parliament. Cayman explains she knows about Tuesday's siblings, and, when Tuesday offers a bribe, Caymen reveals Monday offered the same deal. Cayman orders C.A.B. agents to assassinate Tuesday's sisters.
This is where I leave to your imagination how the stories go on or you can watch the movie. Yes, the suspense starts here.
I saw Rotten Tomatoes gave 3 Stars which made me did not watch the movie at first. But, this time, I beg to differ. I enjoyed this movie enough to give it 5 Stars.
Cheers and Happy watching.
