2067 is a rather interesting science fiction movie, even if it thinks its smarter than it really is. It has the cliches of a Young Adult adaptation that really makes the intesisty of the storytelling rather dull at times, though the acting is rather impressive from its cast including Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ryan Kwanten in a surprising serious turn that we don’t see from him often and he nails it.
Kodi however, really carries this film on his shoulder and it shows from the rest of the supporting cast just isn’t there to elevate this film. Sometimes it just feels like a made for TV movie produced by Showtime than a legit science fiction that needs to be cerebal in the subject matter that it often carries. The direction is highly uneven at times that makes the film suffere that much more.
If it wasn’t for Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ryan Kwanten I think that 2067 might be a complete dud, so for most of our viewers to really enjoy it. I think it needs a lot more jucier subject matter than what we really got. As at times it feels like an updated version of Battlefield Earth. Overall 2067 is a mixed bag but a satisfying even if at times too ambitious science fiction tale.
Overall grade: 2.5/5 stars
