Why watch this film?
'Chaos Walking', the movie directed by the unstable Doug Liman (of 'Edge of Tomorrow'), follows the path of trying to reproduce the success of 'The Hunger Games' on the big screen -- a plague that haunts the 'juvenile dystopias'. Here, we follow the story of Todd (Tom Holland), a boy who lives on a planet after the total and complete collapse of Earth. In this new place, life takes a very different turn. Men's thoughts are sonorized, making it impossible to hide anything. In addition, in the village where Todd lives, there are no women. They were killed by the native creatures of the planet. So it is shocking when Viola (Daisy Ridley) arrives on board a ship, coming from Earth, in this place. From then on, 'Chaos Walking' lives up to its name by showing this young woman trying to survive in an inhospitable environment, in which she understands nothing, and having to deal with these men who verbalize their thoughts all the time. Liman, as he knows well, soon turns this cauldron full of conflicts into action, with the duo fleeing from the Mayor (Mads Mikkelsen, canaster like never before). Despite some original elements, such as verbalized thoughts, the absence of women and even the native creatures that quickly appear in the production, almost everything is transformed into pure generic juvenile dystopia broth. The feeling that remains is that Liman followed the producers' bingo, putting the original story of writer Patrick Ness in a box. At least Holland and Ridley have fun with an escapist, fun and unpretentious adventure.
A dystopian world where there are no women and all living creatures can hear each other's thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise.
