| Realistic Science fiction!
If you like heroic science fiction movies with a lot of action scenes and extraordinary stunts, or Disaster Sci-fi with a hero who wants save the world against the aliens, monsters and other disasters, there is nothing for you in the movie Megaville. Also you can't find any kind of superheroes there. But if you search for neo-noir psychological thriller probably you will like it. Science fiction is a kind of metaphor here, this is a way to show the facts in an indirect manner. It's shows how political decisions and the media can determine the life and even the destiny of a human. This is about being lost in a world of dirty secrets. It is about the factors that affect the people and make them believe they are the same as they were. This movie is about us in the very complicated world. That's why there is no need for special effects. The realistic atmosphere of the film, unlike other Sci-fi that uses the heroism is laudable. It is focus on characters and their situation, is refreshing. Another noteworthy thing is that the movie does not have a lot of actors. In fact only includes the characters that are supposed to do something. Perhaps this was due to lack of funding, but the calm of the movie made the loneliness of the leading character and his fears more tangible in this world of mysteries. The ending of the movie is dark, but when we know this is realistic Science fiction we will accepted. I am not interested in political films nor this is a political movie. It's about human games, games that have psychological reactions. This story is about human's position in a complex world. The ending scene when Newman finds himself handcuffed to Jensen without any explanation, ( in the middle of desert ) is amazing. I think this event a metaphor about one's human position being changed by his actions. He is caught up by his actions and possibly endangered and become a "burn notice" that he have to strive for saving his life even though there is no way to escape. Billy zane's performance is acceptable, but most of the actors does not succeed in their roles. But when we know this is made with very little money, we realize that the crew has provided the best possible work. The last word is that although it is not very fast paced movie with today's standard, the pace is kept steady and never goes away from the original story.
