| How to make a bad B grade movie with an A grade cast......
Is it possible to take a group of A-list actors and make a really really awful B grade movie? Well yes, yes it is and in my opinion Future World is it.
This flicks screenplay, I suspect quite intentionally, tries to pay homage to late 70's dystopian films such as Mad Max and cheesy but watchable 80's sci fi like Cherry 2000. Regrettably, however, this film is more sacrilege than homage.
Future World simply fails to appreciate and understand the mechanics of what made these earlier films work. Things like fleshed out characterisations, an interesting, engaging story and decent narrative.
Suffice to say, I'd rather revisit the original films, than waste my time on this clumsy facsimile. 1/10 from me.
