After his alarming vision of a world ruled by genetic perfection and his radical satire of reality TV, Andrew Niccol, the talented writer of (respectively) Gattaca and The Truman Show, still has things to say, about gun trade this time. His incessant need to remind us of how immoral it is is a bit heavy at times (compare that, for example, to how Martin Scorcese just goes full on with organized crimes epics, letting the spectators process the ethics in their own ways), but can we really reproach to Niccol to commit when that’s what he does best, especially when the result is otherwise an excellent movie.
