Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: I have to admire a mainstream movie that's so overwhelmingly bleak, but that's the only real distinction of this dystopian sci-fi drama.
Fresh: Glover's occasional all-knowing commentary and the dreary music score dull the edges of what was bound to be a challenging project.
Fresh: The film is far from dull or careless but it's not convincing as a lesson in human frailty. If you're going to subject us to this much degradation, it has to be irresistibly believable, not just relentless.
Rotten: As a study of human nature under pressure, focusing on the crimes we commit as well as the bonds of solidarity we forge, it's unremittingly dour.
The book was amazing. The movie, not so much...
The blind see...
This movie didn't get a lot of great reviews but you have to look a little deeper. The movie was about heartache, redemption and love. It ask the question, "What do we become when we need one another?" I recommend that anyone watch with an open mind.
