Dystopic Wanna-be
27 February 2003 | by Dehlia_See all my reviews

Do or Die was a made-for-TV SciFi original whatchamacallit. It looked like it was originally planned as a miniseries and then chopped. We are shown a post-"blight" world in which those with an incurable (but not contagious) disease form an oppressed underclass. Upon even cursory examination, the premise makes no real sense, and its veneer of meaning is merely that -- all surface and no substance. It acts like it has the intelligence and foreboding of A Handmaid's Tale, but by painting broad villains, a fictionalized disease with no social impact, and extreme circumstances, the movie avoids all the meat and pours on too much gravy. Still, I admire that SciFi is making real science fiction, of the sort that might have appeared in Analog fifty years ago. 6/10
