SYNOPSIS: The chosen one of must find a way to defeat the alien presence that has taken over the world and enslaved humanity.
CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: Being special and overcoming all odds with the help of a love interest and the disenfranchised that still hold power.
PROS AND CONS: After three films in this series, enough is enough. As I state in the video diary of this film, it starts to get repetitive.
What I would like to do with his whole series, is take out all the over-the-top action sequences and slow motion fight scenes and just have 3 hours of dialog on the meaning of life and existence.
The mental part of this trilogy is actually pretty deep, but it gets overshadowed by all the special effects and set design. Still, at it’s core, this is a film about the human experience and how we are trained to accept and question the world around us and what the meaning of reality really is.
