A film that suffers from being a pilot for a TV series that never was
28 August 2013 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

An executive is taken as a political prisoner and detained in a detention centre. He, along with others, is accused of being a conspirator who wishes to topple the new dictatorial communist-like government who have taken control. From here he is tortured in an attempt to make him confess to his involvement.

984: Prisoner of the Future is an unnecessarily confusing film. Its story is really fairly straightforward but it's told in a way that results in more questions than answers. In quite a few other films this would be a pretty good thing but this one doesn't have the overall pay-off to really justify this approach. In fairness to it, this story-telling method was very probably a result of this being the pilot for a TV series. They obviously wanted to whet the audience's appetite with several unresolved plot threads that would get them excited enough to generated enough interest in a series. Unfortunately for the film-makers no series came of this, so this is all we have and this explains the vague nature of it. It's very possible they quickly put together the ending too, so that this pilot could go out as a standalone feature film. Whatever the case, the result is a pretty unsatisfying film. The low production values don't really help – the low budget would have been less of a problem in a TV series to be fair – but mainly it's the fact that the overall story seems to have little point that sinks this one.
