Review by Alex PotokMovie called GATTACA Essay was actually a very good movie. Even though Ihave a very bad memory, I still can remember it after two or three monthsafter I watched it. Movie has a very good plot story which I think was veryhard to come up with. Scientific content in this movie plays a major role not only because itis so strange, but also because scientists now already working on geneticengineering and it is pretty much possible that very soon this movies mainidea will come true.
Although it is very scary that someone can predict allyour defects, physical abilities, and even approximate expectancy, it is veryinteresting, Main character in GATTACA is a man who was weak all his life,always trying to be better than his much younger brother, who was alwaysan embarrassment to his parents, who couldnt get a good job becausecomputer when he was born said that he isnt good enough. He had a dream. He wanted to go to outer space. So he went from floor scrubbing totechnician, he faked blood, his finger prints just to get that job.Order now
And bypassing lots of traps he finally did. At the end of the movie he competedwith his brother in swimming, and won even though he never could. Hefinally went to outer space and has achieved his highest goal. My review was not very complete, but in this movie there were lotsof things that are fiction, not out yet which makes it a very good sciencefiction story. I think that may be what it was possible for them to changewas the way main character reacted to those things that stopped him fromreaching his goal. I think that he was very shy and that is why it took him solong to complete his task.
He was always very scared and I think attractedothers attention. But this is only my opinion. Scientific content in this story was very entertaining. So many newthings that future brought us. People no longer seems having fun, but morelike it was the world where everyone new his or her own place, and job andjust tried to accomplish it as clever as possible.
People dress like an oldtimes. Black, white, gray costumes for man, dresses for women. I do notremember any color that sticks out in clothing. And it was very scary forme when a child was just born, and already it was on computer that he willdie approximately at age forty-seven. One of the new things was that when you have to enter the buildingyou work in, you have to pass a blood test to prove that you are really youand not somebody else.
Main character in this story had to get up veryearly in the morning everyday to wash himself with rocks so he wouldntlose any skin at his workstation, checked for any lose hair, and so on. Personally I do not believe that something like this will happen in future. There may be a computer that states everything about me at my birth, but Idont think that companies will be able to see this kind of information. Ithink it will be my personal information, and I will have a right to show it tosomebody if I want to or can keep it to myself.
When the movie started, it was a little boring, but once youunderstood what it is about, you will watch it with interest till the end. Ithink that people must see this movie because it shows you how life infuture may be. By Alex Potok. .
