Source of story Original screenplay
Elevator Pitch In a sort of Big Brother/ The Matrix cross over a Cleric, a highly trained law enforcement officer in a country where feelings and possessions are not allowed, begins to doubt his calling, eventually become part of the rebel uprising and taking on the forces of the establishment.
Content Extreme violence with firearms of all sorts, some edged weapons and martial arts.
A View It’s a sort of shoot’em up and the fight scenes look good, but the moments of tension are limited, and the set-up takes ages, in a world without feelings – we don’t feel anything either.
