Nifty low-budget sci-fi/action outing

2052. The Brother of Mars Corporation sponsors the hunting of humans for sport in the bleak future. Corporate employee Morgan Farber (a fine and credible performance by David Stephens) finds himself put into the game after he speaks out against it. To better his chances of survival, Farber forms an uneasy alliance with a primitive tribe known as the Garbage People. Director Matthew B. Moore, working from a tight and gripping script by Adam Ross, relates the absorbing story at a snappy pace, maintains a tough'n'gritty tone throughout, stages the exciting action set pieces with skill and aplomb, builds a good deal of tension, and further spices things up with nice moments of inspired offbeat humor. The solid acting from the competent cast helps a whole lot: Crystal Largen scores a bull's eye with her strong portrayal of fierce and wily warrior woman Naomi, Paul Shaw does well as the surly and sarcastic Tavis, Darren Dalton cuts an imposing figure as the fearsome Mayor Paulo, LaMyra Kinzer contributes an impressive turn as the formidable Miss Kelly, and Alexander Isaiah Thomas amuses as naive and reluctant wimpy kid Cory. The outbursts of savage violence pack a pretty nasty punch. The CGI effects are real neat. Jeremy Hyler's sharp cinematography provides a cool bright and stylish look. Jim Boitnott's energetic score and the roaring rock soundtrack both hit the right-on pumping spot. An extremely fun flick.
