'Reminiscence' is a Mystery with Very Little in Mind

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 2.5/5.0
Rating: 2.5/5.0

CHICAGO – “Reminiscence” is a futuristic noir with precious little on its mind. Instead of ideas, this sci-fi thriller offers half remembered cop movie cliches and hard boiled detective narration that’s just barely a step above Harrison Ford’s in the original cut of “Blade Runner.”

He also creates a human story around all the nostalgia, that all takes place in the neighborhood of “Roma.”

Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
