Devon B (es) wrote: It's easy to paint all of nazi germany as sadistic monsters, ripping the heads off of babies and throwing them into ovens, but the truth is a little more disturbing. We must rationalize and demonize in order to cope with the fact that some of these monsters, these murderers, were little more than bureaucrats performing a grotesque but necessary function in order to make society a "better" place. While nazism had roots in mysticism and the occult, it also arose out of intellectual pursuits in genetics and socialism. The purpose of weeding out "inferior" gene pools of the jews, mentally ill, gypsies, etc. was to make the human race as a whole more strong. In this society, the individual was unimportant, only the propagation of the species. The idea that some of us are the "master race" while others are a "sub-species", while primitive pseudo-science, could be swallowed by a lot of people with the right motivators in place (and a master orator like Hitler to feed it to them). It's not enough, especially in hindsight, to recognize something as evil, whether it be a movement or idea, we have to understand how evil rises out of something benign. "Heartbeat Detector" (also known as " La question humaine") centers around a corporate psychologist who, while extremely efficient in stream-lining the corporation, has suddenly found himself surrounded by executives with nazi connections. Granted, firing someone from a job is in no way equivilent to murdering them in a holocaust, but the methods and terminology of the business world are eerily similar to that of the nazis. Referring to men as numbers, it's easier to terminate them if they can be somehow dehumanized. Is there something intrinsically evil in trying to increase the "greater good" by eliminating the lesser and weaker members of an organization? Maybe Heartbeat Detector tries to make that connection, but one can always get another job if one is fired from a business for issues one has created for oneself. Being fired for being lazy isn't the same as being murdered for being born the wrong religion or race. It is an intriguing concept, however. Heartbeat detector is an interesting, thought-provoking film that challenges the notion of innocence or guilt when it comes to committing evil deeds.
Mad M (de) wrote: Not good. The first half of the movie is straight filler. The lead is severely underwhelming. It's like a scifi movie tried to go legit, but left behind the best part about scifi movies - ?B-movie cheese and steady action.
Miguel R (it) wrote: while i normally don't let low production values get in the way of me enjoying a film - i simply couldn't get over this one. plus the story moved a tad too slow for my taste, and i was never really emotionally invested in any of the characters. i have read rumors of a possible big budget hollywood remake...whether or not that will be a good thing, i don't know...the premise is cool, but i think they could have done a way better job with the actual filming. visually, the camera never really adds any depth. it's like watching a home movie, with slightly less ugly people.

Anthony W (es) wrote: Probably my favourite Mark Dacascos film. Considering its low budget and time it took to film, it's pretty good, with awesome action scenes and fights. Try to watch the Director's Cut as the other version loses a lot of the original film's heart.
wade s (mx) wrote: Enjoyable film from the era when Humphrey could only get roles playing hoods and psychotic gangster types. He performs the role well of course, but we all know he turned out to be capable of so much more. Leslie Howard is the lead in this film and turns in an admirable performance. It is certainly worth a watch, but not anywhere near the top of "must see" Humphrey Bogart films.

Andrew L (br) wrote: I understand why Batman gets such little screentime & dialogue in both Burton's depictions of the Dark Knight. It's a way of portraying his nature - Batman is very secretive & 'lurks in the shadows' rather than bursting under the spotlight seeking attention. However, Keaton's absence from the screen sometimes seems soo drastic that for large portions of time I forgot he was even in the film. Even the brilliant Christopher Walken manages to make himself more memorable than Batman, with a character who never appeared in any of the comics. That is not to take away anything from Keaton, who delivers another level-headed performance, remaining the best Batman/Bruce Wayne before Christian Bale. Ultimately the film takes a step back from it's predecessor & appears quite limp in it's vision & finale (penguins with rockets?). & despite a brilliant & twisted portrayal of The Penguin from DeVito, we all know he is no match for Batman & Burton only prolongs the film till it's inevitable outcome. Catwoman remains the most memorable element of the movie, but her back-story is quickly summed up & with little screentime in comparison with Penguin there is therefore little reason for her being in the film. It is the best of the sequels, but as with Schumacher's poorly realized follow-ups, this fails to match the 1989 original.
tea u (de) wrote: it's nice to have a more relatable and relevant content dressed up in a standard teen comedy/end of high school format. it has some actually funny moments but stands mostly on its balance of addressing issues but without making a big fuss. the somewhat forced plot devices (most of Michael's actions) could use some work. so whilst the plot driven message of "you're gay.... so what?" is quite forced, the intentional 'meta' construction of this ideal through the movie is welcomely received.
