About the Movie

From visionary director Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys, Brazil) comes a new sci-fi spectacle starring two-time Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen, a computer genius on the verge of a great discovery. Under constant surveillance by a shadowy figure known as “Management” (Matt Damon), Qohen is tasked with deciphering the seemingly unsolvable Zero Theorem, a mathematical formula that could unlock the meaning to everything. But his work is soon interrupted by a mysterious and sexy woman whose sudden presence may point to a greater conspiracy against him…

Rotten: This "Theorem" is all sizzle, zero steak. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Sep 19, 2014

Just watch the trailer

Normally I like movies that are bit off the wall. This movie is an exception, it’s too long(30 minutes in total would have been about right), it lacks a plot and basically is just a bunch of cartoonish events unfolding. It supposedly has a message, but it is lost in the mess that is the movie.
It is a rare movie that I turn off on a saturday night and would rather go to bed, praying that I can stop shaking my head long enough to fall asleep.
Watch the trailer over and over, it’s basically the same as the movie except that they actually tried to make it interesting.
If you can’t find another movie to watch, I’d recommend reading a book rather than wasting money on this pathetic offering.

A mess.

I’m a major Gilliam fan, counting Baron Munchausen and Brazil as a couple of my favourite movies of all time. Zero Theorem however, is a mess of a movie. No clear story, told messily, and the core concept of life = nothing is not properly explored. Sorry Terry, you’re losing it.

A little weird but ok

I found the movie too long but the acting is good and the story has a message (albeit not an extraordinary one) which becomes clear around the end. The funny parts made me smile a bit but not much. I wouldn’t recommend it as a must-see feature but if you have nothing else to do then give it a try.
