Idiocracy is an American film about a man who is enrolled in a government programme to freeze humans to store them for the future, and after a 500 year sleep, the man awakes in a world where humans are so dumb that he is now the smartest person alive.
Well, we’re halfway there, to our 400 films in a year target, and although this was perhaps not the greatest film in the world to celebrate the occasion, it’s still nice to know that we’ve got 200 films under our belt…
This was a pretty average film. The ideas were very good, having people being dumbed down due to global corporate influence and the obsession over celebrities on the telly, however the film itself wasn’t the most entertaining, as it had few good jokes and a very average story.
The main character was also very annoying, as it wasn’t very convincing that he could be the smartest man alive, and Luke Wilson didn’t deliver his role very well, but it was still okay, with numerous entertaining characters from the future, but for the most part, this film was very annoying, so I’ll give it a 6.4.
