By uncanny coincidence I have just spent the last few weeks playing with a Thornton Picard Ruby reflex.

Oh dear...

There is a science fiction film. I can't remember what it is called. It is one of these set in the future 'Everybody living underground after the nuclear holocaust because the planet's surface isn't inhabitable any more' type things. One guy tries to escape - and is pursued by 'android supermen' types. In the last scene he is running down a long tunnel to escape. The androids are after him - and in a control room somewhere we see the cost being expended on capturing this guy clocking up by $$$$. At a certain point, the androids stop and just let him go. He doesn't know why, but it is because the 'system' has decided they've expended enough resources on him and so they just give up and write him off.

So, the question is, does anyone recognise the film?

Because, that is exactly what it was for me like trying to fix a Thornton Picard Ruby Reflex...
