This movie sucked

>Set in le future with le future tech
>No one catches Vincent even though they throw in a million deus ex machinas where Vincent almost gets caught and we have future tech (even NASA would’ve caught Vincent honestly).
>Doesn’t touch on the ethical, societal, or economic implications from gene editing and a pseudo caste-system or what some big government bureaucracy would look like It’s basically just a detective movie and the lesson is we should cheer for Vincent for defrauding his way into a top job and ruining society for his own gain and that you the viewer can be a C-grade student and become CEO of McMutt inc. if you “work hard enough” and have charisma.

Why do people actually like this movie. It is just because it’s emotionally manipulative and that’s enought for 90% of viewers. This was a good concept and they botched it into sappy 90s post Cold War slop.

    It's a dumb hamfisted movie. It's for people who watch the swimming scene with the brother and think it's brilliant.

    It was a good movie but obviously meant to have a different takeaway given how silly the premise is.
    Any society capable of gene editing that good would've moved on from the caste system long ago

    Explain how they would have caught Vincent. He was using wheelchair guys identity and looked enough like him.
    ’t touch on the ethical, societal, or economic implications from gene editing
    "Waaah, it didn't have a le message"

    How did he ruin society?

      Are you fricking joking? Vincent and Jerome barely look alike. They didn’t bother doing any background checks or what?

      Why would I watch it if there’s no message. That’s the whole point. If there’s no message then they could’ve had some fight scenes or something but the movie is pretty dull too.

      Of course someone not qualified or apt for the fricking job will have a negative impact on society. C’mon.

        You're moronic. It's not Vincent looking like Jerome it's Vincent looking like the photo of Jermone that the gov't has on file with his ID. They had a scene where Vincent is adjust his hair to look like the hair in the photo and it was a pretty good match. Certainly enough to pass on 1st glance.
        >They didn’t bother doing any background checks or what?
        What would they background check? Jermone was put in a wheelchair outside of the country and the gov't didn't know about it.
        >Why would I watch it if there’s no message.
        The message, moron, is said in the movie "They've got you looking so hard for any flaw, that that's all you see." It's also about achieving your dreams, even if you are an underdog to do so.
        > they could’ve had some fight scenes or something but the movie is pretty dull too.

        He IS qualified. That's the fricking point. They establish that he is smart enough to do the job.

          They still don’t look that alike and someone would have found out eventually. They should have some facial recongition technology or surveillance if they live in the future. That wouldn’t pass even on someone’s passport in a first world country. They could have explored people looking the other way or bureaucracy being overloaded and incompetent but it’s just a crappy detective crime drama movie.
          >What would they background check? Jermone was put in a wheelchair outside of the country and the gov't didn't know about it.
          Well why wouldn’t they apart from the reasons I said? You stop background checks because someone leaves the country? And it’s a deus ex machina anyways.

          The doctor guy (???) said that the genetic testing was just inadequate if Vincent succeeded. Because he worked harder then that isn’t determined by genes/environment too? Again, it’s a shitty individualistic message; you could say that someone with 95 IQ became a successful CEO or athlete but that’s an obvious exception and/or fluke

            Please explain it again. The movie set up a situation where you instantly disqualified is you weren't born in a eugenics lab. The mentality of the world was also "someone not born in a eugenics lab can't do this job". Vincent proved them wrong. And the message is "STOP LOOKING FOR FLAWS" because it's keeping you from seeing the GREAT. Fricking kys.
            >I guess Lance Armstrong was achieving his dreams too.
            Lance Armstrong was using illegal drugs in SPORTS competition. Vincent wasn't using any illegal drugs. If anything he had to work harder. Lance did drugs so he wouldn't have to work as hard.
            >That’s not the point.

              iPhones and social media are a niche in the first place. You could pretty easily say that the internet is government owned and we all still live in the Usenet era. And I’m not nitpicky enough to complain about small details like that — even then they should have had enough foresight for that since CCTV was already a thing.

              Explain why they wouldn’t do periodic background checks. If cheating his way in (and therefore for everyone else) is so easily then this should be a bigger plot point. Like grade inflation and AA in colleges/university or an underground black market.

              Yeah because he deus ex machinas his way into the job. Just because someone has 90IQ doesn’t GUARANTEE with 100% odds they will be a failure or inept but on average, 90IQ is far worse than 130IQ.
              >Lance Armstrong was using illegal drugs in SPORTS competition. Vincent wasn't using any illegal drugs. If anything he had to work harder. Lance did drugs so he wouldn't have to work as hard.

                >If cheating his way in (and therefore for everyone else) is so easily then this should be a bigger plot point.
                He didn't "Cheat" his way in. He KNOWS his shit. He memorized the fricking physics text book and we (and the cop) sees him working like a genius at the computer doing calculations.
                >Yeah because he deus ex machinas his way into the job.

                Not the same thing. Lance took a drug that was performance enhancing. Vincent had no such thing. He had to actually learn all that physics and science shit.

                He was able to stay on treadmill for the required time. It fricking wiped him out (but it wouldn't have wiped Jerome out because he is a super human). And you keep forgetting, the NASA people think he's Jerome, a super human. All Vincent has to do is maintain the illusion long enough to be shot into space. It's a short con, not a long con.

                I read it but I’m not going to bother replying to every single point you made or nitpicking the movie since most of them are the same points and it will take too long so you’ll lose interest.

                My point is that the movie boils down to “muh expectionalism” feel-good kitsch and it’s basically luddite propaganda. Eugenics isn’t a bad idea. The problem is technological limits and funding, and catastrophic side-effects like inbreeding, one gene affecting something unrelated, or /misc/tards adding metaphysics and race into it. If eugenics worked ideally like in the movie then there is no reason to be against it and you probably have reached end of history. Honestly, “faith-births” should be illegal and from that angle the movie sounds like pro-life Christian stuff. If you support people being born with diseases and ailments then you’re a moron. If you could engineer people to be more docile and happier then where is the problem? Of course the movie never explores any of this so it’s moot.

                Also genes and environment wholly determine life outcomes apart from freak accidents or chance. It’s more insidious to deny it at this point

                >adding race into eugenics

            >The doctor guy (???) said that the genetic testing was just inadequate if Vincent succeeded
            That's the flight director, and the point of the scene where he says that "no one exceeds their potential" and that it'd then simply be a problem of not having properly gauged it is there exactly because it invalidates the unprecise, genetic determinism in the movie

            >Doesn’t touch on the ethical, societal, or economic implications from gene editing
            It does to the extend that is necessary to create the backdrop for the main message of the movie. We do see its impact on society (in fact it's hamfisted in with voice overs at some points). The entire beginning of the movie, the six-fingered pianist, the scene between real Jerome and the cop, etc

                Which just is? I don’t see why they wouldn’t do background checks anyways and the black market aspect is brushed over for the sake of the plot. I’m not trying to nitpick the movie but it’s obvious it’s from an indivualistic POV. Either he actually gets caught or don’t bother teasing it at all, trying to wiener tease the audience for 2/3s of the runtime is a waste.

                That's not a background check. That's a blood or urine sample check. A BACKGROUND check is when they trace where you were over the years/what you were doing/etc.
                And the movie established that Jerome proves Vincent with his blood under fake fingerprints to pass the blood/fingerprint test to get in the building. As well as piss bags to pass piss tests ("there's more alcohol in this piss, then there is piss!" said Vincent). Watch. The. Movie.

                Semantics but really. I’m repeating myself but they don’t look alike. Surely someone would notice. They would have to be literal idiots or all legally blind.
                >And the movie established that Jerome proves Vincent with his blood under fake fingerprints to pass the blood/fingerprint test to get in the building. As well as piss bags to pass piss tests ("there's more alcohol in this piss, then there is piss!" said Vincent). Watch. The. Movie.
                Laughable, imagine doing it in pro sport or for a DUI. Lol

                Not really. You don't know fricking definitions.
                >I’m repeating myself but they don’t look alike.
                The pic you showed shows VINCENT WITH GLASSES and his VINCENT HAIR. Take off the glasses and give him Vincent hair and he passes just fine. And again, according to NASA and the cops he is Jerome, super genius, they see him doing calculations at the computer like a madman, he passes the blood, fingerprint and piss tests. Looking enough like Jerome is enough.
                >Laughable, imagine doing it in pro sport or for a DUI. Lol
                They literally used to do this you fricking moron. Athletes on steroids would buy clean piss all the time to use during the tests. Even in the movie Vincent make sure the tester can't see him piss because he is using Jeromes piss bag.
                >DUI
                Do DUI's make you piss or take blood on the fricking spot? No they make you take a breathalyzer.
                You are a legit fricking moron.

                Did you miss the part where the doctor knew all along and is holding his hand over Vincent? The only reason that he wasn't stopped at 10 different points is because the doctor ended up believing as Vincent did. God damn it man. I'm consistently disappointed in Cinemaphile's ability to absorb even basic information when watching movies 🙁 And that's, again, still ignoring that, even if there was an argument here, it's Cinema Sins tier. If you can't suspend your belief for something so insignifcant and unrelated to the message of a movie, you're a bit of a redditor

                >Like?
                Such as the ones briefly glossed over in the movie, where people are judged by a system that, for a very long time, will not be perfect. Other things that'd it come hands in hands with, such as complete genetic profiles of people and the baggage that comes with. Problems such as that the technology might not become available for anyone and what this would mean for an already drastically widening gulf between the upper and lower class. The problem of where to stop, and if we really want to give the world and our future into a very few, impossibly intelligent specimen who might as well be alien (already from the known alleles associated with intelligence we could create humans about 16 standard deviations from the average. We're talking a completely alien race)

                >Maybe this would be correct for something innocuous like sports but something that has a thematic story and is trying to take itself seriously will have some real life political message.
                What? No man. Something that takes itself seriously will not necessarily have a political message. A movie can choose to simply explore some part of the human condition and not concern itself with politics. That's what the movie does

                >If eugenics worked ideally like in the movie then there is no reason to be against it and you probably have reached end of history
                There are a few more nuances to it than your transhumanism view of how gene-editing would play out in reality, but again, I have never even once said that it is necessarily a bad idea

                >Of course the movie never explores any of this so it’s moot
                Because it is not really what the movie is about. Your problem is that you cannot stop interjecting politics into everything and apparently see movies as just another prop to to push a certain view. It is not about whether it is right or wrong. It is simply a movie about the power of the human will (which I don't even believe in to the extend that most do but which makes for a really, really appealing idea to explore in fiction), where it almost becomes an actual, physical force, and where the characters are almost biblical in how it's reflected in them - Jerome as the perfect human specimen, practically a fallen angel, and Vincent as man reaching for the stars (well literally too)

                Read the sentence again. Fricking 70 IQ reading comprehension. For someone who seems to find the idea of eugenics fascinating, you sure don't look like you'd make the cut

      That’s not even a theme in the movie or something they tackle. They could literally just put the proles on UBI and use machines for manual labour with a supervisor. They could probably do that with today’s technology.

    I get that he's the underdog and all but was it was kind of selfish for a guy with a debilitating heart condition to con his way into navigating a spaceship. What if he has a sudden heart attack in the middle of the voyage and dooms everyone else on board?

      He wasn't a perfect character. He is doing what he is doing because he wants to, and yes his heart condition makes this a selfish endeavor.

    Why would there even be baseliners outside of weird cults?
    That's kind of the plot of Iji the Komato are ancient humans who developed space travel and left Earth like 10s of thousands of years ago and over the millenia have gone through so much genetic modification and android enhancement they're barely alive and the Tasen are a weird cult trying to return to being baseliners
