Good, average movie. Don't know why Nicholas cage always gets such a drubbing!

Was this a platform for Cage to get nominated to be a Climate Change Hero. The characters were transparent and the dialog predictable. A waste of time.

Uninspiring low budget dystopian film with a couple of ordinary twists. Cage looked weird with his jet-black dyed hairdo (implanted plugs?) and washed out expressions, just like the dialogue.

I think this movie would have been much better with a better actor. Nicholas Cage has become a joke in the way Al Pacino has. The premise of the movie is pretty good but the actors dropped the ball.

Another point on the seemingly endless downward arc of Nicholas Cage's career. Suprisingly, the story is actually pretty decent; the production, however, is another thing entirely. You will notice instantly, when Cage is first seen driving, the poor green screen blending. And it just gets worse from there. Apparently, NC is just acting for rent money now.
