Storyline

While two cops patrol Manhattan and advertise their corporation police insurances and package, their captain encounters a new breed of criminal. Ultimately, they all share the exact same faith.

Some Good Ideas Even If The Main Plot Is Under Developed
4 April 2014 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

2095 and the American police force have been privatised meaning law enforcement and the people the law protects comes down to one thing - money and how much insurance citizens have taken out against it . Maybe you've seen this type of thing before ? I know I have in a great film from 1987 which has been remade and released to very mediocre reviews and box office . Obviously the critics and audience didn't want to " buy that for a dollar " ? . We're not talking about an original idea but this short film does what it sets out to do fairly well though

I should write a bit more in order to qualify this Since it's set in 2095 director K Michel Parandi resists the temptation to second guess what the future will look like and the end of the 21st Century looks exactly like it does at the start of the century so this means we're able to buy in to this world right from the outset . It lends great credibility . The problem is the director throws a slight spanner in to the works by having this police uniforms look like exactly like a cross between STAR WARS stormtroopers and the cyborg from ROBOCOP . In short this uniform just doesn't seem practical for task . There's also a slight problem with the main story of computer hackers doesn't seem as well developed as it might have been and I had to concentrate harder than perhaps I should have had in order to follow this plot thread . There's also a strong element " please give us a budget to make a feature length movie " and the short ends with a " To Be Continued .... " caption . Regardless of this it probably is more self contained than a few other short films I've seen recently and I certainly wouldn't mind this going to feature length since in cheek satire and concepts involved are very intriguing
