Anonymity is the enemy.
Men are so easy to manipulate ...
Futuristic writer/director Andrew Niccol returns with another warning about the kind of society that we are allowing governments to build. Set in a world where permanent surveillance has gone beyond Orwell’s 1984, to where everyone’s daily life events are permanently stored in real time on a central database, where you, or anyone you give permission to, can access them. Naturally certain members of law enforcement have unrestricted access to everyone’s files. When people start getting murdered in a curious way, with the killer remaining anonymous by giving the victims the killer’s point of view, the police investigate and are soon caught up in a twisty plot to try and catch the killer.

|Language||Fairly frequent strong impact swearing.|
|Nudity||Fairly frequent moderate impact, including sexual contexts, but no genitals.|
|Violence||Frequent moderate to strong impact violence, within the action thriller genre context.|
|Drug abuse||None (sic)|
|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. |
