17 February 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

In the near future, humanity lives out their lives in front of computers. Darwin operates a loader remotely and spends his life in his computer chamber. A lightning strike takes down his computer and he goes out into the real world. He finds a group of people living off the grid in the woods.

This is an over-extended episode of Twilight Zone or in modern parlance, Black Mirror. There are interesting ideas but it does not add up to a compelling movie. It also leaves some issues in question like why the men leave or how the world works. It needs more danger to elevate the tension. In the end, the little tension doesn't hold up and the movie is left with the interesting ideas.
