2033

Set in a sterile, white-walled dictatorship where all the workers are drugged, this lavish sci-fi feature from Mexico manages to resemble THX 1138 (1971) or the more recent Gattaca (1997) while skimping on full-scale pyrotechnics. The cheesy story plays like a cross between earnest soap opera and Nineteen Eighty-Four: a handsome young man of the ruling class (Miguel Couturier) discovers that his missing father was a revolutionary hero, then joins the underground, battling alongside a beautiful rebel (Sandra Echeverria). This may sound like fun, but it isn't. Francisco Laresgoiti directed. In subtitled English and Spanish.
