Still a powerhouse of philosophy

The upgraded color palette is pleasing, though some of the redone urban landscape CGI scenes are a little over the top. Still, the film remains an outstanding heavy hitter when it comes to atmosphere, characters, covert intelligence operative action, and musings on emergent artificial intelligence. That and its implied connection between quantum mechanics and Buddhism.

It's, well, something like a philosophical spy thriller version of Neuromancer.
