Dystopian New World falls apart due to love – type thing
Set sometime in the 'yet to happen time', we meet some people who all dress boringly and seem to have no emotions, and these are not doctors receptionists by the way. Here we meet Silas who does a boring job and he starts to have feelings for a co – worker and worse still she has the same for him.
In this society emotions are seen as the root of all evil (well greed is normally cited) and so people are screened for the 'disease' of feeling and if found to be infected they have to be cured or well you guessed what the alternative is.
Now this is a film that a lot of styling has been put into it and the actors are all really good and it does manage to keep your attention. The problem is lack of originality – in that we have all seen films like this before where a couple lurve each other and want to do a runner to the 'badlands' or wherever the mutants dwell.
So if you like a good rehash of a few films or stories then it is worth a punt otherwise there may not be a lot here to hold your interest – Guy Pearce is even in it and even that fact fails to raise this from its own self created, dystopian existence of self inflicted mediocrity.
