Corny but a darn good run for the money (low, low budget)
This well done considering that it was filmed in about three days with about no money. This is not synonymous with well done. This is a really beatnik movie. The symbol makers son must fight the established rigid social structure.
The typical surprise ending is a surprise only because it is not foreshadowed. Normally this would be a flaw, but here it keeps the movie from being to predictable. Two wrongs donÕt make a right, but they do cancel each other out. It is fair to say that this movie formed a partial basis for later distopian future themed films, such as Planet of the Apes. I actually liked the plot and I think that most of the filmÕs flaws were caused by low budget, and hence problems with the cost of reshooting scenes or being able to get better caveman costumes. Lack of money is something for which I hate to fault a film because itÕs presence doesnÕt make a bad film good.
My final advice is to watch this if the plot description interests you. It is fairly short; wonÕt take much of your time.
