Synopsis

Karl Urban dons the helmet (and doesn't take it off) to play the uber-righteous member of a police force empowered with the right to be judge, jury and indeed, executioner, in the dark and dirty metropolis Mega City One. Writer Alex Garland (The Beach) and director Pete Travis create a sublime sink city of crime and grime distinguished by some entrancing - and ultra-violent - action setpieces seen through criminal eyes raddled by the hallucinatory narcotic slo-mo. In a visual collision between Pissarro and Peckinpah, it's a movie that's masterfully honours its comic book origins.
