The movie is 80 minutes of mostly entertaining tension, punctuated by violence engineered by a creep using criminally outdated technology.

A brilliantly conceived, but fitfully executed comedy about how bad things are likely to get if we keep going where we're going.

In trying to balance the competing forces of farce and pathos, the film is at times funny and moving, though there are so many characters and subplots that some get lost in the shuffle.
