A remake of Logan’s Run, and Bay does a pretty good job. Clever and nicely shot, with interesting coloring reminiscent of THX-1138.

MacGregor pulls off the American pretty well, and the shots of him with himself are well-done (although it would have been cool if they had switched up his moles). Johanssen is stunning in this one. The real-life ads help to make things a bit more real.

If anything, maybe a bit long, and a bit too many explosions. It made me think, but it would have been a bit better if it would have made me think a bit more…
