    As a fan of Duncan Jones' first couple SF movies, I had high expectations for Mute. Alas, they were dashed. It's all a bit of a mess. Another Blade Runner riff visually (between this and Altered Carbon, did Netflix get the cityscapes wholesale?) even if it's Berlin. The noir thriller concerns a missing girl and the mute Luddite who loves her and tries to find her. Structurally, it keeps forgetting him in favor of Paul Rudd's AWOL American soldier/doctor involved with underworld types. It takes entirely too long to show us what might tie these two protagonists together, the latter seeming like a distraction, but still more interesting than Alexander SkarsgÄrd's non-verbal hero. And then there's the icky story thread about a pedophile, that really isn't proven necessary. The resolution is all kinds of slapdash. By the end, you might even wonder if Mute needed its sci-fi setting. Or for its protagonist to be mute (diversity aside). Even its links to Moon seem indulgent.

    It isn't anything like as unremittingly terrible as some reviews would have you believe, but it is a tonally strange film. I'm not sure it works as a whole, but bits do. 7 months 3 weeks ago

    A real mess of a film. As a fan of both Moon and Source Code, this was a great disappointment. 7 months 3 weeks ago
