4 out of 5. Andrew Niccol and his Production Designer for GATTACA get high praise for capturing sci-fi using the strength of great architecture and simple design. GATTACA is a great achievement on many levels especially the power to evoke so much with so little without cheapening the moment. All the elements of a good cinematic experience are present and before you know it, it's over leaving you wanting more. Luckily this wasn't burdened with "franchise" possibilities. It's rare these days and movies as good as this are rarer still. If you like smartly done sci-fi you'll dig this.
