In a world where people are implanted with a chip that records their lives, one man has final cut on the recorded history of his clients. Alan Hackman is the best "cutter" in the business, his ability to grant the corrupt absolution of the sins of his clients, has put him in high demand. However, his talent for viewing life without emotion has shaped him into a cold distant man and has made him unable to experience life in the first person.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's not quite as smart as it thinks it is."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"This debut from writer-director Omar Naim is cut-and-dried sci-fi thriller business."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Robin Williams edita con estoica convicción, los pecados de los hombres."
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"If the ending is predictable and even anti-climactic, chalk it up to a first effort. The rest of the film, brilliantly shot by Tak Fujimoto, is worth a look-see."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"Reminiscent of science fiction cautionary tales like Gattaca and anything written by Philip K. Dick, The Final Cut is a must-see."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"It's nice to see Mira Sorvino who has sort of wobbled about since winning the Oscar about ten years ago she is very good in this film."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A sleepy, boring, and utterly forgettable thriller..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A solid thriller through most of its 105-minute run. Sadly, the film comes to a sudden, and dissatisfying, halt."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"The message of The Final Cut is clear: memories can't be trusted, and neither can Canadians."
‑ Brian Juergens, Freeze Dried Movies
"I'm frankly amazed the foolish, cheap-looking thing didn't go straight to the Sci-Fi Channel."
‑ Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly
"Williams has extraordinary success in channeling this other person. How strange that the same actor can play some of the most uninhibited of all characters, and some of the most morose."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Most significantly, the film underscores the fact that the meaning of our lives ultimately comes from somewhere outside of ourselves."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"O melhor aspecto do filme reside na maneira inteligente com que discute as implicações sociais e morais de sua premissa - a marca registrada de toda boa ficção científica."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Naim's script is intelligent, but not always easy to follow. It is an example of a fully adult science fiction film and one that does not require any special effects."
‑ Mark R. Leeper,
"Everything of minor interest in the piece (and Williams' late career) is crystallized in the lyrics to the maudlin Pink Floyd song that bears this film's name."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
