While it's widely assumed that Suki Waterhouse's character's amputated limbs were achieved digitally, most every shot is an in-camera practical make-up effect. Lots of advance planning and storyboarding was required, in order to pull off all of the shots required in a timely fashion. See more »
In one shot her left leg is missing, then her right at a later shot and then her left again. See more »
Walking around, more walking, oh and did I mention walking?
I was excited to see this movie after reading the synopsis a couple of days before the screening. As the title of this summary suggests, there is a lot of walking in this movie. The story starts out semi promising with you wondering what happened to the earth but ends up being the walkiest and least talkiest movie I've ever seen. I know those aren't words but goddammit they get my point across.
The main actress is forgettable, Jason Momoa, Jim Carrey, and Keanu Reeves were miscast or maybe it was just the bad script? Possibly both? Back to the walking part, with minimal dialogue and no action whatsoever, this movie becomes a student film really quick. What I mean is that they don't cut out all the walking around and other useless scenes that should have obviously been taken out.
There isn't really a story, it's sort of tried to take elements from Mad Max and other post apocalyptic films that are much better than it and hope the audience notices and doesn't care or doesn't notice at all.
My suggestion: don't see it unless you want to be bored to death.
Seen at TIFF 2016.
