The History Of Future Folk Reviews

A delightful sci-fi adventure that simultaneously strips the genre down to its low-tech basics and infuses it with audacious new verve.

It is so charming and sweet ... and the songs are so winning that it is impossible not to fall for it.

The nonsense proves good, goofy fun that works well because "History" at least acts as if it takes itself seriously, going easy on obvious ironies while dishing out catchy tunes.

The movie could have made its points - war is bad; music is the universal language - in half the time. But the harmonies are sweet, the acoustic picking impressive.

It may not make much sense in a brief plot summary, but it makes perfect, daffy sense on the screen.

Even as an apocalyptic plot-pushing rescue mission unfolds, slapstick police chases keep the level of diverting quirk high, and the husband-wife/father-daughter dynamics remain central.

This is a film that sincerely has love for its characters, and the songs are actually quite catchy.

A low-key sci-fi mashup that charms by focusing on character rather than grandiose special effects.
