|Comments||Contains scenes of simulated sex, cocaine use and smoking. The action sci-fi thriller “Anon” explores strong impact themes of murder, crime, investigation, undercover operations, mental hacking, artificial intelligence, memories being erased, past and present, relationships, technological advances, science fiction, surveillance, illusion, invasion of privacy and guilt. Themes are presented within the context of a futuristic context involving a highly technological and computerised world. These themes are complex and mature and some, including those dealing with complex technological advances, murder and undercover police work, may be confusing to cognitively immature children under 16 years. Pro-social messages about fighting for what you believe is right, solving crimes and looking for the truth, justice prevailing and raising awareness about privacy issues in an era of highly developed technology, are presented in a complex manner, which is likely to be of more benefit to cognitively and morally mature viewers of 16 years and older, than for younger viewers who may have trouble comprehending it.Some of the themes, such as those dealing with murder and crime are inappropriate for cognitively and morally immature viewers under the age of 16 years who may be disturbed, upset or morally misled by it. This particularly given elements such as nudity in sexual contexts and simulated sexual conduct, which may also prematurely expose children under the age of 16 years to adult experiences. Themes are also presented with a sense of threat and menace, for example those relating to the threat of an unseen murderer on the loose and involving violence and distortions of reality, underscored by suspenseful music and disorientating visual effects, intensified by the enhanced audio-visual effects of the cinematic format.|

What the Critics say
Ethan van Diemen From the guy who brought us Gattaca and was a writer on The Truman Show, it is sad to see what should have been a great movie, with evident ambition, reduced to something you really don’t need to watch.
Tomatometer Lacking enough depth to fulfill its evident ambitions or enough excitement to work as a sci-fi action thriller, Anon lives down to its title in the most glumly predictable ways.
Brian Costello Violent sci-fi thriller has sex, cursing.
