Babylon AD Review

Babylon AD is a Sci-Fi mystery flick set in the not too distant future. B.AD is a mix of Blade Runner and Minority Report. The movie moves well with many techno gadgets to salivate over. The director this week expressed his unhappiness with the studio taking over the film. In the last 15 mins the film falls apart and you can see that someone tried to do a quick patch job that just does not work.

Still worth a slow Saturday at the movies but it needed a better ending.

From a marketing point of view I felt that the gadgets could have given the film some additional legs. Iron Man, Minority Report, 007 and others use this approach. Not sure why the studio did'nt give their film this fighting edge. One of the sweet toys featured is a Can-Am Spyder Roadster Motorcycle.
