Looks better than it is
- The Man from Nowhere review by HM
Another dystopian future to conjure with. It looks fantastic; lighting and general landscapes are an eye pleaser. The story however, limps along without really engaging the viewer to my mind. Performances are so, so. No wonder it took so long to make episode two, the basic Blade Runner story expired itself first time around. I got a little bored after 90 minutes. Shame, the general look and feel needed a better story.

This is not a dystopian sci-fi film
- The Man from Nowhere review by DS
It’s a crime thriller. It would have been a mediocre Liam Neeson film if Liam Neeson was in it, which he isn’t. It could be greatly improved by being about 45 minutes shorter and having a different plot. One of the villains looks like my girlfriend’s nan.
