Orwellian Journey Into a Brave New World
18 February 2015 | by stanfordballSee all my reviews

Gen RX and Hunger Games are more than youth-oriented films reaching a large swath of moviegoers, as dystopian styled films provide critical escape from our daily worries. Gen RX presents a compelling story about the current state of society, joining the pantheon of thought provoking films commenting on the deep thoughts and concerns of the masses. Gen RX stimulates the eye and mind, and transports the audience down an emotional highway of human solutions to problems of our modern age. More than just an entertaining film, Gen RX is story of humanity and behavior that speaks to a collective consciousness.

Dystopian stories like Gen RX are increasingly popular and celebrated in world films for a reason...they are entertaining and dig into the mind. Gen RX is a an Orwellian journey about the needs of humanity and the desire for personal freedom. Rather than a negative story about the darkness and self-fulfilling prophesies that are so characteristic of doom entertainment, the film is a well-executed telling of collective existence. Well cast and powerfully staged, Gen RX presents an intense performance by Canadian Melissa Elias showing extraordinary range. Gen Rx is a provocative and important dystopian thriller.
