My Review:
Having heard a lot of things about this movie however never having seen it before, my mother decided to buy this movie for us both to watch. Not knowing what to expect from this movie I was not disappointed.

The movie is about how in 2027 there is no more children in the world and after the death of the youngest person being 18 at the time there seems to be world chaos. This is when a former activist gets involved through his ex-girlfriend and comes across a woman who is pregnant and he has to try and help her to get to the safe haven without people taking her child or getting killed.

This film is a lot better than I expected it to be and I found myself gripped by the movie almost straight away. The film being about how there is no more children and how the world seems to be at war seemed like something that could happen within the world in the not so distant future which made this film worrying however something that had a great premise for the movie. With a lot of action throughout the movie as well it was great to watch as well as the ending being emotional and shows how the world can be chaos but there is a chance for peace and silence even if just for a moment before it continues. I found the acting in this movie also really well done and I couldn't have faulted it at all as the audience is made to feel scared, worried and on edge throughout which is great for a movie like this.

I did however, not like some of the camera angles in which were made during this movie as it started to make me feel a little nauseous which did make make me not entirely happy with the movie I was watching. I also found that the ending not showing us more and making the audience know what happened next rather infuriated me as I was hoping to see more of the film, however the ending was also well done for making the audience think what they wanted at the end of the film.

I would recommend this movie to those who are after a dystonia movie in which has a lot of action and will make you think. I also believe that this movie is one that people should watch as it brings out a lot of emotion while also being chilling. A great movie which I am glad to have seen and was something I really did not expect to be as well filmed as it was.

My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b
