Making cars easier to steal = efficiency? Face it, that was just the moronic climax to the worst action sequence in any of Spielberg's films. Colin Ferrel (sp?) pumping his fist in frustration as Cruise pops out from under the seat somehow and drives right out of the factory is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.

If they check eye IDs EVERYWHERE, why the hell wouldn't they check eye IDs at his office?

The grotesque, exaggerated characters in, say, Clockwork have a purpose. They are how Alex sees adults of the world and help him (and the audience) justify his violence towards them. Tom Cruise does not see the world in such a way. Instead he just seems surrounded by ridiculous people.
