new world looks bad
7 April 2020 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

In an authoritarian society, a quarantine committee has been sending suspected infected into an isolation concentration camp for the last 1825 days. The system does not work. Both sick and unsick are packed together. Senator Ford ruthlessly determines the infected no matter how limited the evidence. Revolutionary Ivan Joad tries to assassinate Ford. She barely escapes taking important programmer Spencer Crown hostage. Eventually, Spencer joins her in trying to overthrow the system.

This premise has more prevalence today than ever before. For that, I could give this movie an extra point. It was always an interesting premise. It's just more meaningful in 2020. It's too bad that it looks so crappy. It's a cheap Canadian sci-fi film. It's definitely a B-movie. It has a few good actors which makes it almost passable.
