Storyline

In Taeter City, there is no crime. Using Zeed radio waves, the city's dictatorship cause criminals to commit suicide. Their corpses are processed and sold as fast-food by conglomerates who nourish the ravenous populace. It was a perfect system - until Zeed started making the criminals stronger.

When talent surpass budget, and a genre is reinvented.
13 October 2012 | by ForgottenWorldsSee all my reviews

This guys/ company/ filmmakers/artist, or whatever we want to call them, have just created a new genre. That's it.

The story: In a futuristic country/city, a dictatorship manage everything, Criminals commit suicide thanks to a special radio-wave system, and their corpses become tasty hamburger or bloody energy drink. But something goes wrong and they all become demented super criminals.

Critic: The story is original but not unique, basically just a mixture of Soilent Green and the videgame Oddsword, Blade Runner and some of zombie movies. What is incredible here is the style... sorry: the STYLE. Italian were great to reinvent styles like western and horror (look at Fulci and Leone) and this guys are doing the same here. 80's style + Japan cartoon culture = 10 times better.

The visual is just art here, and the editing keep you drugged for the entire movie. The flashbacks are presented like frenetic digital files, and the background story explained with dictatorship advertisements, and it worked in a perfectly, killing all the dead point similar sci-fi movies had. The action sequence are so well edited, they looks like a manga, fast, extreme and they leave you breathless. Special effects are over the top, digital and practical, and the blood and gore sequences just 20 out of 10. The movie don't present good characters, only bad and sadistic characters for the entire movie. (This reflect what this world is turning on. I really loved that) A continuity of bizarre moments, kills, mutations, action sequences and funny moments throughout the entire movie, and that's worked perfectly. I suppose this guys spent about 1/100 of what big production spent normally to create movies like Dredd and Battleship. I just say: SHAME on you big production, and learn from this guys.

I don't know if any person involved in this movie will read this but: My best wishes for your future projects. My complete and sincere support from Germany.
