Two unlikely companions embark on a perilous adventure through the badlands of an unexplored planet as they try to escape a dangerous and disorienting reality, where all inner thoughts are seen and heard by everyone.
In the not-too-distant future, Todd Hewitt (Tom Holland) discovers Viola (Daisy Ridley), a mysterious girl who crash lands on his planet, where all the women have disappeared and the men are afflicted by "the Noise" - a force that puts all their thoughts on display. In this dangerous landscape, Viola's life is threatened - and as Todd vows to protect her, he will have to discover his own inner power and unlock the planet's dark secrets. From the director of The Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow and based on the best-selling novel The Knife of Never Letting Go, Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland star with Mads Mikkelsen, Demián Bichir, Cynthia Erivo, Nick Jonas, Kurt Sutter, and David Oyelowo in Chaos Walking.
Never heard of story prior to watching the film, but as I watched it I thought this must be based on a book for young adults. And what do you know, it's based on a book for young adults. That being said the movie has an original plot, excluding Wonder Woman's island themiscara or whatever it's called, so that made for an interesting backdrop.
At its surface it's just an interesting plot, but more I think about it, for me it's kinda weird. I couldn't imagine a civilization behaving as the one on screen behaved, let alone conceiving such a plot. I think that's my biggest grip, but if you don't read to much into movie and just take it at it's face value, it might be entertaining.
