To be honest, I have not watched the shorts on MTV before I watched the movie. Fortunately the Alamo Draughthouse where I watch the movies at ran 2 episodes before the movie to give us an idea of the story and characters. I had pretty low expectations for the movie but was mildly surprised. The story was actually pretty good and the acting was not bad at all. The pacing was brisk but then again, the movie was very short so it was to be expected Now for the negatives, the CG was pretty bad but then again I am not a massive fan of CG personally And there were some very predictable segments to the movie as well which is probably one of the reasons the movie has been panned by some critics. However, it is a darn sight better than the negative reviews suggest. The movie and the locations and some of the sets really give a sense of the future. The promos could have been SOOO much better than they were but all in all, it was a good flick. 3/5 OSNN stars. If you like sci-fi flicks, you might want to consider this.
