Escape from semi-dystopia
If you like orwellian, dystopian, type sci-fi, you`ll enjoy this. if you're paranoid about exaggerated egalitarianism you`ll also like it. what i liked about it is that it showed the good sides of dystopia. the mistake many movies make is showing it as "all bad", as if humans would ever choose an "all bad" system of goverance. i also liked it for the good acting, good scenery and settings, and the good acting by meryl streep and jeff bridges. the content is nothing new to any sci-fi buff, but it does this particular genre well. the use of color to denote emotions or lack thereof was a good idea. the ending was a little rushed. nobody likes a drawn out movie but this could have benefited from an extra 15 minutes. the makers could have made the movie a little more gritty as well. i give it 5 stars anyway because it kept my full attention throughout.
