Disappointing, Painful, Cliched, Banal

See it if you are a friend of the actors. Nice staging.

Don't see it if Just don't. Really amateur acting and dialogue. Need a lot of work. Read more

Amateur, Slow, Prosaic, Cliched

See it if you want to see a poor man's "1984", with a rather silly premise, far too many characters, and not nearly enough cuts to the mundane script.

Don't see it if you expect a polished, professional production or an original dystopian story. [The interminable courtroom scene is illogical & ridiculous.]
