Glossy, attempting to be the next Matrix, you still end up asking yourself “why?” as there is no real reason given for Matt to be so important.

The ideas of hats and special interventions to ordinary lives – it’s all just so put on. I mean, it’s like being told that Santa exists and then wading through the tedious explanation of how he gets in the non-existant chimney and how he can make all the toys but they look exactly like the ones on TV that cost £24.99 and keep companies able to support their workers through trade and market forces that rely on the purchase of goods and not the sudden springing to existance of tons of film-based games and plastic figures.

There isn’t any substance to the plot, is what I’m trying to say. And that means that the frantic running around is pointless. There is a much more mischeivous film called Dark City that did the exact thing but better.
