Cast: Mike Dopud, Jane Badler, Jochen Hägele
Paris 2047. Most of the population spend all their time online, connected into virtual worlds, and don’t care anymore about reality. A bounty hunter Nash is hired to find who are the terrorist who threaten the system.
Virtual Revolution is a stunning visual piece of Neo-Noir film taking place in 2047 in Paris. With VR technology finally becoming something consumers can experience with the release of Samsung Gear VR, if this technology explodes into the mainstream and evolves into something much more than a simple device to play games and watch media well the world is going to hell like the one in this great film from Guy-Roger Duvert, where people go on-line most go the time and never gets out of their home. Nash, (Mike Dopud) a shadow agent hired by one of the VR companies to get out and kill cyber terrorists who will stop at nothing to destroy these virtual worlds and force people back into reality killing them in the process.
The film resemble a bit like Blade Runner painting a dark picture of a depressing future lit up only by neon signs, computer monitors and flying cars.The CG background looks awesome here considering that it is an independent film. It paints a clear picture of what is going to happen in the near future. will it happen to us in the near future no one can tell. I think people are smart enough to see that this gaming virtual world is for entertainment only and no more than a few hours a day.
