I would have like things a bit more futuristic. These points are fairly petty but its just things I noticed.
I don't think that's really a spoiler, but just in case.
I did read before watching the film that having similar looking cars as now was deliberate. It was an attempt to show that despite some technical advancement that there had been little economic development in the preceding 30 years. Hence the increase in vagrancy and poverty as the welfare state became unaffordable/unpopular.
