“Really quick one to get out of the way as a warmup. In continuing tradition, I picked up quite the haul of movies on Black Friday. Most of them I’d seen, but there’s a handful of completely new to me ones. Technically, I think this one was acquired shortly after, but it was still lumped into the pile of ’em.
In this movie that you never heard of, Norman Reedus is doing a favor for Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman who produced this film by starring alongside Djimon Hounsou. It’s a future where our air has become toxic, and in order to allow civilization to continue on, scientists and others important for our survival have been put in suspended animation in some sorta space craft or something? I couldn’t really tell. And our leading men are the crew on the next shift to protect the precious human cargo and maintain the environment. But of course things go wrong.
You know how sometimes when you watch a movie you can’t get fully absorbed into the world? You see the actors on the set, and can’t get past the fact that they’re on a set. Yeah, this was one of those. It just didn’t work for me. Honestly, I have no idea what happened for the second half because I mentally checked out. At least Reedus is very pretty.”
