Paris 2047. Most of the population spend all their time online, connected into virtual worlds, and don't care anymore about reality. A shadow agent, Nash, working for one of the multinational companies behind these virtual worlds, is tracking down terrorists who threaten the system...
In a public Facebook post written on June 29th 2016 (after FilmQuest 2016, where "Virtual Revolution" got three awards and seven nominations), indie director/actor Ryan LaPlante wrote : " "Virtual Revolution" is, quite possibly, the most impressive piece of independent cinema put out in the last ten years. It's a sci-fi epic that manages to tackle high-fantasy, sci-fi action, and a blade-runner-esque visual aesthetic that it manages to make all its own. I told [Guy-Roger Duvert] after I saw it, the film manages the holy trinity of science fiction: the story has personal stakes, encompasses a world-altering conflict AND raises a key philosophical question (that's pertinent to today) while debating all sides. Guy is the kind of guy who should ALREADY be helming major franchises, so I can't wait to see what he does with one when it falls into his (very well-deserving and prepared) lap." See more »
I may understand some bad ratings! This movie is like french literature, a bit complicated and intellectual. I agree this will not be the movie of the year, but I acknowledge the effort and the construction : special effects are good, atmosphere is fair, acting is good enough to immerse you in this future, filming is well done, story-line is having a track. This could really be our future some day. The realism of the streets of future Paris is nicely constructed, seems like some 1900 paintings. This is not a blockbuster from Hollywood, this is an independent SciFi movie with a fair budget and to be honest, the money have been invested well. I have been watching the whole entire movie and enjoyed it. I hope people will do so.
