's review

did not like it

The idea would have been original (without watching Westworld first), but the implementation did not satisfy in the least.

The narration seemed robotic in a way, which should have been fitting, but it left me indifferent to the story unfolding before my eyes. Everything felt random and when the pieces of the entire puzzle were revealed I just couldn't believe it at all.

(Why would Owen...? How did Ana...? Why the security team did not...? How come the judge...? And all that teenage drama *le sigh*)

Seriously, this story was all over the place... Too little, too much, too soon, too underdeveloped, too instantaneous, too angsty, too childish, and the list is still open and the characters as flat as the paper I'd be writing this all down on if I didn't type the review.
