Fritz Lang’s vision for this film is one of a desolate and divided future. A future devoid of empathy and compassion. Given its age, even today it is relatable on deeply personal level. It portrays a world where the gap between those who have, and those who have not, is not just wide, but a chasm that cannot easily be crossed. It’s sad to think that a future dreamed about almost a century ago has actually in no small measure, actually come to pass.

It was a re-imagining of the original 1990 film of the same name, directed by Paul Verhoeven. Following a similar premise of “Protagonist thinks he is an average every day dude, but is actually caught up in a mired web of lies; deceit and corporate espionage”, the 2012 film failed to live up to the expectations of the audience.
