Visually Fun

My teenagers and I, actually found this film to be a bit entertaining. It was visually interesting but, the plot seemed to lag a bit. There were important messages that were attempted. But, some people may not have caught them, due to the very surrealistic scenes. But, if you're really into science fiction and conspiracy theories, this will be good to see.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
