Nothing extraordinary, but still a quaint low budget thriller. There was a lot more filler than there was substance, and although slow paced, thankfully, the 89 min runtime flew by. Sadly though, this predictable thriller was pretty much thrill-less.

Many people, myself included, are smitten with Steven Soderbergh's use of the European language in Hollywood cinema or his innovative attempts.

But you're 60 now and you've been in the industry for 30 years. Aren't you done trying things out?

"Kimi" is nothing more than the average director's job. Yes, there are very good visuals, but this man's main job is cinematography anyway...

As "Kimi" (2022 release; 89 min.) opens, the CEO of the company that makes Kimi, an Alexa-reminding device, is doing a TV interview from his Seattle-based home. We then are introduced to know Angela, who works as a voice stream interpreter at that company, but working remotely due to COVID-19. It's not long before Angela picks up an audio file containing what appears to be an assault on a woman. At this point we are 10 min into the film.

Couple of comments: this is the latest from director Stephen Soderbergh, working from prolific David Koepp's latest script. The movie is plot-heavy so the less said about how this plays out, the better. My overall sense as I was watching this is that I was reminded on multiple occasions of Alfred Hitchcock. "Rear View" immediately comes to mind, but also the recurring theme of a single person accidentally becoming involved in something big. Of course the other underlying theme is the perils of ever more intrusive technology in today's society. Kudos to Zoe Kravitch for a great lead performance as Angela, as she caries the movie from beginning to end. Last but not least, the original score is by Cliff Martinez, the once super-prolific film composer wo is making his return after 4-5 years away. Bottom line: this turned out to be mindless entertainment and the hour and a half just flew by in no time.

"Kimi" premiered last night on HBO Max (meaning, it's not even on HBO or HBO On Demand). Why such a low profile release, I have no idea. In any event, if you are in the mood for a decent thriller, I'd readily suggest you check this out, and draw your own conclusion.

There was a lot more filler than there was substance, and although slow paced, thankfully, the 89 min runtime flew by. Sadly though, this predictable thriller was pretty much thrill-less. Zoe Kravitz's performance was spot on, but that's pretty much it. Even the gangster types were pretty lame and boring. Nevertheless, a decent one time watch. It's a generous 6/10 from me. Kimi, post this review.

Kimi (2022) is a movie that I recently watched on HBOMAX with my wife. The storyline follows a post pandemic world where Angela is scared to go outside of her apartment due to social anxiety and concerns about the virus. She works from home on software known as Kimi (that is essentially Alexa). One day while working on the software she comes across a potential murder and reports it to headquarters. Her company doesn't need the bad press and wants to make absolutely sure what Angela thinks she saw they stand behind before reporting it to authorities and ask her to come into the office; unfortunately for her, her company is doing their best to cover up the report and will try to discredit Angela up to the point of eliminating her. Can she manage going outside and surviving these circumstances?

This movie is directed by Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) and stars Zoë Kravitz (X-Men: First Class), Byron Bowers (No Sudden Move), Erika Christensen (Traffic), Rita Wilson (Sleepless in Seattle), Derek DelGaudio (Vegas) and India de Beaufort (One Tree Hill).

This does have a very unique storyline and a good cast. There's some interesting circumstances that are executed well. The anxiety was well presented and made elements of the film unpredictable. The locator sequence and technology was very cool by the third world country as they tracked down Angela. The ending nail gun sequence was the highlight of the movie and very well done. This also has a great soundtrack. I will say the ending was just okay.

Overall this is a unique film that is okay but you only need to watch once. I would score this a 6/10 and recommend seeing it.

,boring next to a borderline, claustrophobic and far to digitally technical for a grumpy old man. Filmography though are very decent work of the art, might recommend it for that...
