Both of these factions are ruled by corporations and populated by elites. In the areas called Dead Lands, genetically incompatible immigrants suffer from drought and epidemics.Written by
I'm sorry but this movie was a complete waste of time, why 2 stars and not 1 because the actors were still quite decent.
This movie goes from one fallacy to the next, irrational and uncohesive for the most part. Clearly had some propaganda in it for the Islam as it had a decent amount of quoted lines from the Qur'an and some clearly Islamic habits.
The only thinking it got me to do was what next stupid thing is the producer going to bring out next and what is his next flaw going to be.
It's clear the writer and producer where the same person and it was just a terrible move.
Let me do some guessing, I FEEL like that the producer was trying to produce a masterpiece like other great philosophers have done, such as Plato and his Plato's Cave, however he failed completely miserably. Probably due to not enough skills in being a philospher, writer and/or director. It's a shame because the plot/synopsis looked very promising.
