A welcome antidote to the flux of YA dystopian tales, this is a good film marred only by a sudden ending. The novel on which the film is based, was written before the likes of Divergent and Hunger Games and so the film can be forgiven of its similarities. This is concerned less with sci-fi action, however. Its focus is hope and a future after society has been neutralised thanks to decades of war and inhumanity.

Worth watching and its message is worth considering.

Um filme legal, bacana, mais não passa disso, poderia ser melhor se tivesse um final diferente!

What started as a promising sci-fi movie, ended up being just another dystopian teen drama. From what I've read it's not the novel's fault, it was adapted to be just what turned out to be. We have enough of these movies already!
