An excellent Adaptation of a P.K. Dick story (by JoeB131)
The late Philip K. Dick has been the source of inspiration for many movies in the last 25 years, although most of them are only loosely based on his fine work. This film is based on Dick's story, "The Imposter", and they've managed to expand out a 20 page story in a 90 minute movie, mostly just by adding in chase scenes. Still, the movie is fairly faithful to Dick's original work, with essentially the same ending. Although in the novel, the U-bomb was capable of destroying the entire earth and did. The basic concept of "If I'm not me, then who am I?" <more>
comes through pretty effectively here. Gary Sinese and Vincent D'Nofrio come off well in their roles. Madelene Stowe and Tony Shaloub have good supporting roles. Funny that three of the principal actors have gone on to detective shows.
This movie surprised me, it was far better than what I was expecting, seeing as I believed the critics and chose not to see it at the theatres based on that. I won't be listening to critics anymore! I wish I had seen it at the theatres now, and supported it. More science fiction as well done as this film should be made, considering far worse movies, make far more money.The special effects were 1st rate, locations, cinematography, acting, all very, very good. The story was compelling, lots of action and kept you guessing the entire movie, right up until the very end! Very well done, I <more>
recommend this flick to ALL sci-fi fans, don't miss it!
I'm shocked to see how many people truly dislike this film. Okay for starters the script wasn't the best, the actors were alright, though not bad enough to have to comment on, the plot was awesome, of course as it's based of my favorite author's short story-by the same name philip k. dick who has inspired the classic blade runner and other good movies like minority report and total recall. I think the biggest let down with this movies was the directer and the budget, usually small budget movies don't get to me but when this movie could of been so much better- it ticks me <more>
off, seeing all the overused sets over and over again. I don't think the screenplay was that bad, the script wasn't the best, the twist ending was my favorite part of the movies because i didn't suspect but there wasn't that many clues after all, unlike something like fight club. The future philip k. dick envisioned was very different to what was shown on this movies mainly because the small budget and having to take parts from other movies, lol. I won't go over the plot outline again because it already shows but trust me it's not bad like everyone thinks; out of five stars i'd probably give it 3 and a half to 4.
Philip K. Dick would like this movie (by gracie28)
This movie has gotten a bad rap mostly from folks who just didn't get it. Of all the movies based on Philip K Dick stories, this one actually is most true to the plot line. And as a fan of Philip K Dick I give this movie a lot of credit for that. He visualizes a dark, grim future world at war with aliens and the fear and confusion that comes from the impostor accusations. The movie reflects that very well. They did add some material just to make it a full length feature flick, since the original literary work is a short story. Sinise is excellent, Stowe is pretty and sensual as usual and <more>
D'Onofrio is over the top , as usual. A good cast, good photography and an interesting set design. I give the movie high marks, and recommend it especially to any fans of Philip K Dick.
very,solid,well done sci/fi entry one of the best i have seen so far (by disdressed12)
this is a terrific,well acted movie.it has plenty of action,a very good storyline and is also realistic.it asks many questions and leaves the viewer to answer most of them.i was drawn into this movie right from the beginning until the very end.there are some great,and unexpected for me,anyway plot twists.the ending i thought was brilliant.i felt the writers really captured the look and feel of a futuristic earth at war with the enemy.i also liked the fact that you never really know who the enemy is,until the very end.even then,i wasn't sure.if you are looking to be entertained,you should <more>
give this movie a try.if you like compelling and thought provoking action and drama,you should also give this movie a try.this movie has some intelligence behind it,which many movies today are sorely lacking.this is one of the best movies of the Sci/Fi genre i have seen to date. i wouldn't call it a masterpiece,but it is a very solid,well done film.My vote for "Imposter" is 9/10
"Those who deny the existence of robots may themselves BE robots..." (by kdm042)
The previously posted comment for this film would have successfully steered me away from it... If I weren't such a huge fan of "Criminal Intent" Vincent D'Onofrio and "Monk" Tony Shalhoub that I had to see it anyway.I wondered throughout the movie, "Is this guy Gary Sinise a robot or NOT???" The sets and direction not to mention the performances of Gary Sinise and Vincent D'Onofrio, which were intense sucked me in. D'Onofrio makes a fabulous driven investigator. Shalhoub's role was small, but I was too busy grooving on the plot to <more>
care. My one regret in the performances is that Madeline Stowe didn't have much to do, except alternate between the roles of a stereotypical uber-doctor and a limpid, grieving wife. The one scene that hints at her acting talent occurs when she confronts her husband at the abandoned park.Granted, the film does start out like it's going to be typical sci-fi schlock, but once it was past the first 15 minutes, I almost forgot it's science fiction.The bottom line: This movie WORKED for me! 9 / 10 stars
I have no idea why this movie is such underrated. Yes, Gary Fleder is no Steven Spielberg or Ridley Scott. He doesn't have the excellent imagery or visual wonders of the other directors' films. But at the same time, he has been more faithful to the original short story than Scott or Spielberg could have been. He has added only one major twist which made the film rather more interesting. And one major credit of the film is that it could capture quite obviously the feel of paranoia that's been the mainstay of Philip Dick's most stories.Gary Sinise is always pleasure to watch on <more>
screen. And in this case his performance is flawless. D'Onofrio plays the tough security officer with enough passion. Madeline Stowe is rather frigid in her role.In short, 'Impostor' is a gripping tale with solid plot and enough substance. A must see for every genre fan, regardless of the fact that one of the greatest sci-fi writer has penned the story.
I just watched Imposor, and I have to say it was surprisingly good. I was entertained throughout the movie, with non-stop action, great acting, and also a good story. It was quite exciting, and had a really unexpected twist of the plot at the end. Nice thriller of the year, and it also had some great special effects even though this was not the important or subject in focus in this movie. Espcacially I enjoyed the quite unexpected end of the movie.Highly reccommanded to any fans of sci-fi, thrillers and even detective movies.All in all, a movie worth watching, and I give it an 8 of 10
Great little film (by siderite)
One can notice when watching this movie that it has been artificially lengthened, but not to an annoying degree. The story is nice, based on Phillip K. Dick, the acting is good, with solid actors doing solid work.I can't really tell too much of the plot without spoiling the movie. The end was pretty predictable to me, but I don't think this applies to most of the people, and the path to the climax was an interesting trip.The atmosphere is dark and the movie makes you think about people and human nature much more than most of the sci-fi of the day. It is definitely worth a watch and I <more>
