Great Content, Social Commentary
9 June 2007 | by CaveneauSee all my reviews

I'm only giving it an 8 out of 10 because it is a little dated so I wouldn't watch it too many times, however the content is great. Set in a dystopian 1984 - like Dictatorship regime where an 'alleged' disease is spreading out of control and quarantining as many people as possible seems to be the favoured cure.

Blown away to see 2 Stargate SG-1 celebs sharing as intense screen time as this. Garwin Sanford and Tom McBeath as opposing idealist both pitted against each other's ideals more so than each other personally.

Filmed in BC, Canada. I'm watching it right now which prompted me to write this. I fear it has been quite edited unfortunately, definitely for language, a few 'F words' , 'Moth---ker', I think there's some scenes cut to. I'd love to have a copy of this unedited and on DVD, I'll try looking into it.
