2095. The world is ravaged by ecological disaster. Oceans have risen and all natural freshwater is gone. Fang Rung has undergone molecular fission in order to send his other half, code name Gordon Thomas, back in time to the year 2017. Gordon goes in search of scientist Mona Lindkvist whose ground-breaking research was lost before it could save the world. When Fang Rung loses contact with Gordon he sees no alternative but to travel back to 2017 himself trying to locate his other half before the world's balances are irreparably damaged. It's a race against time for Fang Rung to save himself and the world.Written by
I was completely sold by the premise of this movie. At it's core... it REALLY is a great plot... even as it continues to unfold. But there were opportunities missed to make it more enjoyable to watch. It's already a very dark movie... literally as well as figuratively. The grim tone of the characters moods and situation were reflected in the use of the dark and sometimes monotonous tones on screen. This in and of itself isn't a bad thing.. but you have to balance that with something a little more engaging for your audience.
Ultimately I still enjoyed this film for what it was. I'm glad I watched it and while I personally believe that it was excellent at it's core, I can only assume that the lackluster responses are a direct result of how unnecessarily boring it was at times.
