Arlen is abandoned in a Texas wasteland that is fenced off from civilization. While trying to navigate the unforgiving landscape, Arlen is captured by a savage band of cannibals led by the mysterious Miami Man. With her life on the line, she makes her way to The Dream. As she adjusts to life in the bad batch, Arlen discovers that being good or bad mostly depends on who’s standing next to you.
If you like gorey grim dystopian movies like “The Purge” or “Saw”, then this is the one for you. It’s like the writer took “Saw” and “Mad Max” and bashed them together until they made this baby.
It gets as bloody, visceral and cannibalistic as its R rating will allow, with a pretty hard to watch setup scene. If you can stomach that, then you’re in for a treat. Good cinematography, good acting, impressive from a technical point of view, as everything is shot on location. Don’t try to make much sense of the story, this is a movie meant to keep you tense and raise adrenaline levels. Which it does pretty well. Loved the great appearances of Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves, but Jason Momoa’s and Suki Waterhouse’s acting is top notch too.
Four popcorns, but remember it’s not one to see with the kids ;)
