From our Swindon Correspondent:
(this may contain spoilers, so go and find the movie and watch it if you haven’t already.
It wasn’t a film that set the world alight on release, but it did reasonable business. Critics were quite cool on it generally.
Sure, it’s pushed to excess in the films, but most dystopian films get things badly wrong. Nuclear war didn’t happen. There weren’t food shortages like in Soylent Green. And maybe no-one talked about it at the time because this wasn’t the anticipated dystopia.
