Um...What Did I Just Watch?

One of my most anticipated films of 2019 is sadly a dud. The film starts off with modern U.S Marines wearing World War II helmets and that really sets the tone for the rest of the film. World building is exceptionally vague with hardly anything explained and character development is pathetically rushed and paper thin. Even with extensive voiceover, I could barely tell you what the plot of this film even was, when it took place or why the characters act the way they do. It feels less like a film than it does a collection of poorly strung together scenes ties around Hayden Christensen's impressively acted, but narratively useless, voiceover. I was getting Slender Man flashbacks watching this at points and that's not a good thing. You can really tell how much of a nightmare this was to make and large portions of the movie just seem straight out missing. Often times, characters will shift behavior and personality seemingly between scenes. Hayden's Tove begins the film as a physically vulnerable, washed up bum and then becomes a cold, efficient, martial arts mastering badass a scene later. Occasional exposition will be thrown in to give us at least a bit of context, but hardly anything that makes this any easier to follow or any more compelling from a story standpoint. It's a shame, because there's a lot to like here underneath all the incompetence. Hayden Christensen's performance is genuinely award worthy, probably his best since Shattered Glass. I was shocked by the range of his vocal delivery, it's easily the most he's ever showcased, and his facial acting is equally nuanced. It's one of those performances like Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady or Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar, where his acting clearly belonged in a far better movie. Harvey Keitel isn't half bad either. He's at a stage in his career where acting is pretty much optional for him, but he genuinely seems to be trying here. He believes in this film and he believes in this character and he definitely commands the charisma and presence of a "dark messiah"-esque character. The overall aesthetic of the film is excellent as well. The visual direction (mostly) looks better than most theatrical wide releases, really capturing the dark, Gothic feel of a Gotham City or Blade Runner-style LA. The musical score is one of my favorites in recent memory as well, evoking a very moody, ominous and intense tone. Overall, The Last Man is a mess. It has plenty of positive elements, but they can't fix a broken and confused (If not outright incoherent) story and character development. It's worth a onetime watch just to appreciate Rodrigo H. Vila's inspired direction and the excellent lead performances, but it's not worth much else.

This is the debut of the Asado Sci-Fi

You've no doubt heard of the Spaghetti Western genre? I mark this movie as the debut of the Asado Sci-Fi genre. It's a supremely ignominious debut at that. There is no talent nor innovation on display here; like its Spaghetti forebears, it's laden with misappropriated tropes and stereotypes, acted out - very poorly - with no particular rhyme or reason. Keitel and Christensen will not be able to live this one down; they should have seen the apocalyptic train wreck coming when they first read the script.

a disappointing mess

Actors were not bad so I have to chalk it up to bad writing and dialog. My gf actually walked in and asked why they are talking like that. great concept just was not portrayed in a professional manner. a big disappointment for me and i am sure you will see the over-all rating plummet once a few people have seen this mess of a film. 3.8
