John Connor [Celluloid 10.31.19] scifi action thriller adventure



Back in 2016, a short proof-of-concept sci-fi short film called Code 8 was released. That was so successsful that the feature is now upon us three years later, getting a release in theatres and On Demand December 13.

Directed by Jeff Chan, who also directed the original short, Code 8 takes place in an alternate history dystopian world. Some of us possess abilities that could be construed as superpowers. But don’t be mistaken — these superpowered folks are instead viewed as outcasts, discriminated against, and left in the lower classes of society to suffer.

When one powered man (Robbie) struggles to make ends meet for his sick mom, he turns to a friend (Stephen) who works for a high-powered drug lord (Greg Bryk, Ad Astra), and the two turn to superpowered crime. But they’re on the run from two detectives (Sung Kang and Aaron Abrams) and a scarily high-tech police force that feels like Robocop crossed with District 9.
