Neither bad or good
11 January 2017 | by dave-70421See all my reviews

Well more an OK film and a 5 from me.

The best part of this film for me was the script and overall story. As the script and story itself was very good, certainly deserving of a far bigger budget and better design and location shooting.

I'm not going to analyze the film scene by scene as clearly there is script padding. But it's a reasonable and thought provoking realistic vision on how some may well eventually envisage the future of mankind in a way in the future when population numbers may well start to outstrip resources to feed it. Conspiracy theorists will say this will happen in the future to try and control the population.

Acting was OK, certainly a miss match of acting abilities between some of the actors (maybe reasons for that as seemed a rushed production at times). Sadly production values, well more the budget was seriously lacking with this film. And what could have been more a 7 out of 10 for me is sadly a more realistic 5.
