When troubled musical prodigy Charlotte (Allison Williams) seeks out Elizabeth (Logan Browning), the new star pupil of her former school, the encounter sends both musicians down a sinister path with shocking consequences.
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.
The yellow smiley face shorts worn by Arlen are the same as Die Antwoord rap artist and 'Chappie" actress Yo-Landi Visser wore in the video for the song 'Baby's On Fire'. Die Antwoord's song 'Fish Paste' is also featured in this film. See more »

This is a dystopian movie about a young woman left out in a lawless desert with some real choice characters.
This film starts off very brutally but calms down considerably after the first few scenes.
The characters, acting, production and filming are really good. The story is adequate for needs. The scenery and leading lady are absolutely gorgeous.
So why the low score? The pace of this film is cripplingly slow. There are tedious scenes that should be time lapsed but are run in real time, there is lots of staring and grimacing in silence. You really can go and make yourself a sandwich during this and be safe in the knowledge that you are unlikely to miss anything.
A lot of potential, I really wanted to like this, but it is just so slow I was fighting to stay awake.
