A Sci-Fi movie review
What happens when humans have destroyed all of it's resources. When its inhabitants have used up all food and are literally suffering riots, horrible storms, starvation and mass deaths? What do we do? We send our own to another planet for habitation, of course. But what if every planet found won't sustain us? What if, in order for humans to survive, they have to immediately evolve? This is The Titan.
Many dystopian-futuristic movies have planet Earth in a sate of collapse. In The Titan, the world is fading fast. Food is practically gone, riots are breaking out, dust bowls are prominent and the government has a plan to find a new home, but it comes at a cost. Can it be too much and will it be humanity that survives?
A particular group of men and women have been chosen for the habitation of Saturn's moon, Titan. They receive injections and run through a gamete of tests that transform them, allowing them to breath the air and such. It's all a countdown to who will be the first to inhabit the planet as a homo titanians. But can they endure? Those selected, along with their families are given homes of millionaires and fancy food aplenty, but things quickly go wrong. The transformations don't quite work out for some. Will the plan work or will it backfire in their faces and in the faces of all depending on them for survival?
The Titan is one of those science fiction movies that keeps you hooked. I watched it on Netflix and I was moderately entertained by the story, the FX and the acting. It's 100% fantastic. The story is driven by purpose, but in the end, it was all about family. I loved the face-off in the end and how they made things happen, but it's a sad story. A lot is lost, along with the fate of humanity.
Check out The Titan. This story of forced evolution has been done before, but it's not a total loss of a movie. Not a great one either, but if you want something for a Sunday, couch-lounge of an afternoon, this one's a go. Cheers!
