Run Time: 1 hour & 43 minutes

In the near future, the sun has become so toxic people can no longer leave their houses in daytime, and normal life is conducted mostly inside the virtual realm. Against this dystopian backdrop, a dying man (James D’Arcy) seeks to ensure the future well-being of his family, while coping with what it means to be human in this new reality.

Pretty cool idea for a sci-fi flick. 

The story building is kind of slow and a bit boring, but the final 40ish minutes is great! Very Black Mirror-esque. Also, very thought provoking, as this seems very plausible in a future world. 

The scene about humans being the cells for a greater being hits so hard… damn. I’ve definitely had these deep thoughts/conversations before with friends. Crazy. From that point on, I was hooked.

LX 2048 is now available to rent or own on Amazon, iTunes, Comcast, Spectrum, Dish, DirecTV, Vudu and more in the US and Canada.

Reel ROB Rating: 6 out of 10 stars

Post Credits Scene: No
