Future World is an apocalyptic thriller that has clear Mad Max vibes. Indeed, the film seems to be actively modeled over the iconic George Miller franchise. James Franco, of all people, plays a warlord and the villain of the film. I may have dismissed Franco as an average actor prone to histrionics, but after looking at his performances in David Simon’s The Deuce and The Disaster Artist, I am not so sure. The hero of Future World is Jeffrey Wahlberg, who is on a quest to save his mother (played by Luci Liu) from Franco’s Warlord’s clutches.
The look and feel of the film is so much like Fury Road that it is worth thinking whether it is not a parody or perhaps a ripoff….
