Storyline

Wes Keller is a young man living in a world where oil has collapsed, the food supply has been wiped out, and cancer rates for women have skyrocketed, depleting the female population. In a barbaric environment where bio fuel, batteries, bullets and people are currency and marauders roam free, Wes tries to escape to a mythical world run on cold fusion "Plutopia", a place that may only exist in the mind. THE BILL IS DUE. 'Downstream' is a view of the not so distant future. We follow a young man (everyone's son) as he pays the price for society's decadence. Written by Phil Y Kim

The lengths you would go to survive
11 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am surprised at the low ratings for this movie, I thought it was pretty awesome. The story hooked me from the start and the directing was cool with lots of experimental, comic-booky, split screen stuff.

Acting wise, I was slightly disappointed by the over the top villain but the charismatic lead, Wes, more than made up for it. You could really feel child-like Wes' uncertainty in the morality of his actions. Billy Drago also has a creepy, small role.

I am apparently in the minority here, but I'll go ahead and say it: I thought Downstream was a lot better than The Road (the book or the movie.) Check it out if you like post-apocalyptic stuff with a healthy dose of action and gore (and a dash of cute doggy co-star.)
