The future of biopolitics is an Apple Smartwatch. No, wait, it's the present: surveillance, knowledge/power, and technologies of the self. Wirkola paints a realistic portrait of a bureaucratized, neoliberal Europe taking a clue from Michel Foucault and the Club of Rome, subverting the narrative of The Handmaid's Tale/Children of Men: overpopulation and not mass sterility is the enemy.
Good sci-fi romp with an interesting premise that is squandered in favour for a lot of running and shooting. Rapace puts in a very good performance and it's unfortunate for her that the rest of the casting is pretty weak. The action is pretty basic and effective but the visual style and production design should have been better. The plot keeps you on your toes but is let down by Wirkola´s workmanlike direction.
