Storyline

THE BAD BATCH follows Arlen (Waterhouse) after she's left in a Texas wasteland fenced off from civilization. While trying to navigate the unforgiving landscape, Arlen is captured by a savage band of cannibals led by the mysterious Miami Man (Momoa). With her life on the line, she makes her way to The Dream (Reeves). As she adjusts to life in 'the bad batch' Arlen discovers that being good or bad mostly depends on who's standing next to you.

What did I just watch.....
23 June 2017 | by rhardy-390-701341See all my reviews

Where to start.

AMAZING cast, high hopes, good direction, TERRIFIC cinematography and a Dystopian future to boot....What else can you ask for????

A script that does not read like a bad night of binge drinking.

The storyline was horrendous. The female lead acts like she does shoe commercials. WORST "Essay" accent EVER from Momoa. Keanu looked like he had studied for the role of John Holmes, complete with just BAD dialogue. Ribisi.....screaming at the sidewalk crazy, not cool crazy. Albeit, Jim Carry was perfect in his part.

This viewed like a kid's idea of the future. Confusion, dead end scenarios, lopsided and pointless plot and to me it was like that silly acting joke " Do the Oscar-worthy film, then the artsy film, to keep safe" for...everyone involved. It's like someone said " Hey! I have a breakout idea along the lines of Robert Rodriguez's Mariachi, that's going to be BIG once it's made!...and laughed when someone fell for it.

Wait for this to be on youtube, for the love of God. Do not spend a SINGLE penny to see this. Hell, the effort of turning the thing on, even on youtube, may be a reason to sue them for a loss of personal energy, in the effort of clicking, to be subjected to the most amazing cinematographic pile of refuse....I mean, the camera man was a God and the only praiseworthy participant in this entire debacle

My title is EXACTLY what I said out loud, when the credits started to roll. Proved to me that a great line up does not always equate to satisfaction....or even something considered to be worth watching for free....Yeesh. The 3 star rating was for the scenery and camera work. The movie is a dead in the hole 1, on it;s own
