Victoria wakes with a head-ache and bandaged wrists,pills spilled on the floor. A strange sign is flickering on the television but she can remember nothing. Outside she meets Jem, a young woman who explains that the signal on the television set comes from the White Bear transmitter. It has turned most of the population into voyeurs who do nothing but watch and sometimes film as a deadly elite known as the hunters kill those unaffected by the signal,such as Jem and Victoria. Escaping from a hunter they reach the White Bear transmitter,which they intend to destroy. However the White Bear set-up is not what it first appears and nor is Victoria. Written by don @ minifie-1

Punishment online
6 January 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Victoria Skillane (Lenora Crichlow) awakes dazed and confused on a chair in front of a television with a weird sign, pills spilled on the floor and bandage around her wrists. She walks around the house with amnesia and glimpses of a girl. She sees a picture of her, a man and the girl on a fireplace and she concludes she might be her daughter. She leaves the house and sees people watching and filming her passively. Out of the blue, a man with a rifle hunts her down and she runs under the view of the inhabitants. She meets a young woman called Jem (Tuppence Middleton) that explains to her that most of the population is controlled by a signal from the White Bear transmitted that transforms them into voyeurs. They run to a convenience store in a gas station and the hunter shots and kills Jem's friend Damien (Ian Bonar). They run to escape and a man called Baxter (Michael Smiley) stops a van and saves them from hunters. But the guy is a sadistic hunter but they succeed to flee. Jem explains that she intends to burn the White Bear to the ground and they drive to the facility. When they reach the place, Victoria learns secrets about her and the place where nothing is what seems to be.

"White Bear" is a film with a cruel and dark story of punishment online with a surprising plot point in the end. The truth about Victoria is absolutely unexpected. The story has criticism to the present lifestyle, with people not interacting with the others and passively watching the world through the screens. Further the population maybe tired of the present injustices in the legal system has created the perfect punishment. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not available.
