Elevator Pitch In the present day a virus has killed 99% of the world population, leaving five million living in a walled city. But 400 years into the future people are disappearing and there is rebellion against the dictatorship headed by the man who created the antidote. A female super assassin receives her instructions by sophisticated means, and goes to work, but things are not as straightforward as they seem.
Content A number of set pieces in a very shiny futuristic environment, involving gymnastics, edged weapons hand guns and machine guns. Massive body count, bewildering plot, young women in body hugging lycra, one implied sex scene. Can’t understand why it is a 15.
A View Even CT in lycra cannot save this which is unfortunate. It could have been OK, and honestly I can’t quite understand why it is boring. It is claimed that the best twenty minutes was cut, so that could be it. It was panned by the critics, and lost money. Probably not worth your time even if you are a fifteen year old boy.
