It's the same director as Gattaca, right?  I keep thinking now that this dude should be the guy doing the new Twilight Zone movie, or at least one part of it.  It would feel like the show AND a movie at the same time.  Just get another writer in who can help out with the horror/adrenaline for that (nothing wrong with getting some help).

I always dug this movie but along with what you said about having no emotional connection, I kept wondering about all the "dead" time.  He can't just be "on" 14 hours a day (presuming 8 hours asleep), he'd need to relax, have some down time, take a nap, and can you imagine what happened when he hit puberty?  Do they cut to the other people, show their subplots and so on?  What happens in they flub a line, or is that stuff all pre-recorded?  The logistics of the thing really start to break down.
