The concept of Dystopia sounds easy to understand: A big pharma company has taken over the world and made people infertile in the year 2037.
The lines between big pharma and the government are essentially nonexistant. Regular people who aren’t invested in the company, BioCorp., live in slums, basically waiting for extinction.
The infertility pandemic kills newborns seconds after they are birthed. Three men accidentally create a time traveling device and two of them travel back to 2017.
Long story short, three people end up back in time without a way to get back to their present (2037). A soldier is sent from BioCorp. to kill them and ensure they don’t change what happens in the future.
The first part in this series is a bit confusing the way it jumps between 2017 and 2037. To add to the confusion, the title screen on the single disc I rented says “play movie,” and only after searching on the Internet did I realize it must be part of a series.
One of the men sent back to 2017 goes a little crazy and is fueled by his emotions to eliminate BioCorp. entirely. The cat and mouse game between the four that were sent back to the past gets messy.
Mix in the time traveling with a few visual hallucinations, and the first part of the series takes an interesting turn as one of the characters heads down a dark path.
Despite any confusion, the storyline is intriguing enough to keep you watching.
There are a few parts that aren’t explained that well, like the doctor who arrives on scene to remove tracking devices, and the growing body count nobody notices at a large gala event, but I guess that’s the magic of movies.
There are quite a few good parts where the future changes as it’s happening.

Just when the episode starts to get intense and has you glued to the screen, it ends. Now, you have to wait for the next episode.
I give Dystopia six out of 10 popcorns.
