In the near future, a war and famine-ravaged America has given way to the police of New America. Noah Kross (Nicolas Cage) is an enforcement officer with The Humanity Bureau, a government organisation tasked with searching society for those who qualify for a fresh life in New Eden, a utopian community dedicated to those in the most need. On his latest assignment, Noah makes an unexpected connection with Rachel (Sarah Lind) and her son, leading him to question the New Eden selection process. With Noah now rogue, government enforcer Adam (Hugh Dillon) is soon in pursuit, beginning a chase across the post-apocalyptic land as Noah re-evaluates his duty as he makes critical discoveries about the true intentions of the Humanity Bureau.
I struggle to understand how they afforded to hire Cage for this film, as already suggested, perhaps they blew the entire budget on his fee. This is apparently a Canadian produced and funded film, and it really lacks the Hollywood bucks that it needed.
A potentially good story was lurking in there somewhere, but this was a disappointing effort. The plot had more holes than a Swiss cheese, and at the end it left you with that "was that it?" feeling.
