Storyline

The dark year 2204, in a world that has seen 73 years of continuous war. The face of conflict has changed. People kill people but they now rely on giant, intelligent battle machines to fight. Meanwhile, mankind has re-discovered the arts of magic and Shamanism and the Generals on both sides use well-trained spiritual warriors to face the threat of machines. Shamans have special senses; they are experts in all aspects of the "unseen" and the "beyond". They believe that every person, animal, plant and object has a soul. When crossing the border to the Netherworld, the Shaman can find this soul and interact with it. That is what makes him such a deadly, highly effective weapon. They can find and convert the souls of their enemies' giant battle machines in to psychological soul-to-soul confrontation. But Shamans are not invulnerable. They are just people and can be killed like anyone else. Shaman Joshua Van Kern and his squire Lene embark on a mission to convert a giant battle colossus ...

Best of the Best
22 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Netherworld is the most mysterious place for human being. Thanks to Director Marco Kalantari, with his brilliant sci-fi talents, showing us his imaginary Netherworld through the journey of the Shaman.

I believe the movie is prima facie a success with its excellent cast, soul stirring music, meticulous production, and most importantly, the incredible and invaluable post-production. No wonder its trailer had attracted 4 millions of views worldwide before the complete version of the short movie was actually launched.

I especially like the scene that Joshua the Shaman "battles" with the Machine. It is not a physical confrontation at all. It is a battle between the souls of the Machine and the Shaman, the white and the dark and a man and a woman. I think the attempt of their manipulating each other's soul is the highlight of the movie. I especially like the interior dialogues of the Shaman, analyzing the strategies of the adverse party – Seduction, Diversion and Evasion.

I really appreciate the efforts of the team. It is Best of the Best and it definitely worths far more than 5 millions views. I have no reservation to recommend it to my friends and family and all the movie-lovers, and sincerely hope there will be a 120-min version in the near future?
