Did you think the ending was gonna be what I thought it was gonna be? An eye for an eye?Just watched The Bad Batch , not bad. It's kind of a dystopian type near future , where "undesirables" are sent past the "wall" , which looks to be in the USA/Mexico border somewhere. Obviously the film is making a statement on USA policy of the time. Some really gruesome parts as our heroine trys to make her way in the wastelands with only her standard issue gallon of water , in beating sun and desert scrub as far as the eye can see. Not a situation i would want to be in. Things go from bad to worse when she eventually finds some semblance of what passes for civilisation out in the badlands.
Keano Reeves makes an appearance as an unusual Cult leader type. Well worth a watch.
As it was, it maintained my interest all the way to the denouement. The ending fucken sucked harder than I would've thought possible. Sooo stupid. After all that was invested in building up a solid premise with pretty good tone and performances, they flushed it down the crapper. A waste of 2 hours. 1/5
