After resigning, a secret agent is abducted and taken to what looks like an idyllic village, but is really a bizarre prison. His warders demand information. He gives them nothing, but only tries to escape.
During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.
A New Yorker awakens to find himself in a place called The Village run by a man known as Two. As everyone in The Village is referred to only by a number, everyone in The Village refers to him as Six - despite he himself knowing that he has another name - and seems to know who he is. He is told he lives in The Village and that The Village is the only reality there is. Six's mission becomes to find out where The Village is, who Two is and why he is seemingly keeping him prisoner in The Village (despite Two stating that Six is a free man), and how he can escape to his life back in New York. Six has to learn who among the Villagers he can trust - who include a doctor named 313, a cab driver named 147, and Two's own son named 11-12 - in his quest to escape from The Village. Six also has recurring memories of his life in New York, including an encounter with a woman named Lucy, which may be part of the key to discovering why he's in The Village. Written by
I believe there's some people on here that have had too many HATER TOTS.
Seriously, I am not going to over-embellish this review with such grand words as classicism and surrealism. Nor shall I try to compare it to the original. I shall not pour a cooler filled with HATOR AID over the unsuspecting shoulders of all the Brit fanatics of the original, more James Bond inspired story. I shall simply say I enjoyed it, rather immensely I might add (I do realize I am pushing the envelope on the big word usage). I enjoyed the characters, the story, and it's new take. I liked the confusion of the Lost inspired editing. But what hasn't been inspired by something else at some point? The Greeks figured out that there were only 250 plots period, end of story (pun intended).
P.S. Grab some popcorn, get comfy on your couch, turn on the tube and enjoy. And don't take what the haters say to heart, they're takin it waaaay too seriously.
