I agree. Whatever commentary on modern-day culture this movie was incidental. If the commentary was intentional, the crafting of it needed more time in the oven...as did the rest of the script.
The more I think about the movie, the less it holds up. I think your take that the movie is the output of an algorithm makes perfect sense. The movie was engaging enough to hold my attention, like the algorithm like, but the universe isn't anything I would want to revisit, a common complaint of movies built only to get money.
