At last... a fun dystopian sci-fi epic - a splattery shambles with a fat dose of social satire and barely a lick of sense.

Planetary destruction and human extinction happen a half-dozen times every summer. It's rarely this refreshing, though.

Projecting the problems of today into a science-fiction tomorrow, this also ties them to a compelling story that keeps shifting under its characters' feet.

An intellectually and artistically superior vehicle to many of the end-of-days futuristic action thrillers out there.
