‘Future World’

This is the kind of film that gives the post-apocalyptic story a bad name. It makes Waterworld look like fine art. The cinematography and acting talent has been squandered by a substandard script, gratuitous violence, and a nonsense plot lacking a satisfying story. It’s as if a series of action scenes have been thrown together in a random sequence. The effect resembles that of a visual collage, an elongated music video whose target audience is comprised of thirteen-year-old boys.

Future World (2018) is set in a sub-Mad Max: Fury Road type of world with zero effort to do anything new, or to have fun parodying it like Turbo Kid. The result is a film that takes itself far too seriously and could do with a sense of humour. It’s a cringe watch that currently has a 0% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
