Just saw this film. In a word, unbelievable.
I can’t count the number of times that I was sitting there saying to myself “there is no way they just did that, no way.”
Basically, it’s a post-modern society where no one has given birth in 19 years.
The director deliberately tosses the viewer and the protagonist into a situation where neither knows what the hell is going on. The action unfolds rather willy-nilly as everyone comes to grips with the situation that is being presented and the constantly shifting details of his “mission.”
It’s a brutal film and it’s violence seems very different from other recent flicks. Characters in this movie die without warning or glamor. It’s not a gleeful gore fest but a frightening, bloody tragedy when anyone in the film loses their life.
All in all, I highly recommend watching this film. I would also recommend that you read nothing else about it before you go. Honestly, the less you know, the more enjoyable your experience can be.
Anyone else see it?
