Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.13.14] Italy scifi



I wish I could tell you that a movie starring Danny Glover, Daryl Hannah, Stephen Baldwin, Michael Madsen and Rutger Hauer looked awesome but if you consider the movies all of those actors have appeared in over the last few years (with the exception of Hauer who has appeared in a couple of interesting movies lately), it should be immediately clear that perhaps 2047 Sights of Death isn't really designed for theatrical release. That's not necessarily a bad thing – until you see the trailer.

The setting for Alessandro Capone's movie actually sounds pretty great... it's the rest of the story that seems a bit hokey The official synopsis reads:


The year is 2047. Our planet is ruled by the repressive Confederate Central Government (CCG). Ryan (Stephen Baldwin), is a Green War rebel agent sent on a mission by Sponge (Danny Glover) to collect evidence against the CCG for its heinous crimes. Ryan soon faces the sinister Colonel Asimov (Rutger Hauer), Major Anderson (Daryl Hannah) and a group of mercenaries lead by Lobo (Michael Madsen). Ryan's mission quickly turns chaotic when he meets Tuage (Neva Lions), a mutant survivor of the CCG rebellion who swears to help Ryan save what is left of their world... or does she?

I assume the paycheques were pretty hefty to get this much star power involved and who knows, maybe 2047 Sights of Death will actually provide some B-movie goodness. Plus you can't underestimate the power of an explosion; I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up on Syfy's heavy rotation.

2047 Sights of Death is screening at the Cannes Film Market and will have its world premiere in June at the Italian Contemporary Film Fest.

looks like it was made in the 70's - even the music is bad.

Someone took some serious drugs when they put this together. It seems that some important story line elements may have been left on the cutting floor, the movie feels half done. I would say that the director lost the plot but there is no real evidence that the movie actually has a plot.

This might very well be THE WORST film ever made. I excuse Baldwin because he's cheese and he knows it, which makes him almost epic. I know Madsen and Hannah will make anything these days - but Danny Glover, Hauer, are these guys that desperate to eat that they would make a steaming pile of horse dung like this?

Horrible, horrible, horrible. All of these "actors" should retire after this bomb. Time to hit the bottle.

Good lord!

it's in Asylum category - you know, that film company which produces films for government torture chambers in dictatorships and rogue states.
