Brilliant timely and (clearly) unappreciated
12 November 2017 | by paraduxSee all my reviews

Part social satire, part action film, part zombie end-of-the-world story, this wonderful little gem is technically perfect, well acted and scripted, and generally more fun than a barrel of hammers.

The fact that viewers don't seem to get it seems more a symptom of how conflicted our society has become than any actual fault in the film. A quarter century ago, Michael Douglas did FALLING DOWN (1993) which explored the same theme and audiences immediately connected. This is a better film and more relevant.

if you work for a large firm or simply are alive on the planet and wondering where society is headed. this is for you. Recommended.
