Movie Info

Inside a desert oasis, a queen (Lucy Liu) lays dying as her son Prince (Jeffrey Wahlberg) travels across barren waste lands to find a near-mythical medicine to save her life. After evading violent raiders on motorbikes led by the Warlord (James Franco) and his enforcer (Cliff "Method Man" Smith), Prince meets Ash (Suki Waterhouse), the Warlord's robot sex companion-assassin who's in search of her own soul. As Prince is captured by the Druglord (Milla Jovovich), the Warlord's forces roar in--and Prince fights to save the remnants of humanity.

Critic Reviews for Future World

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4) | Rotten (9)

  • A low-rent, post-apocalyptic sci-fi tale that doesn't succeed as either homage or parody of such obvious inspirations as the Mad Max series, Future World proves as original as its title.

  • Franco and Cheung's unorthodox approach of directing almost the entire film in random, nomadic Steadicam shots with wobbly zooms alienates the simplistic plot.

  • I'd say it looked like what Corky St. Clair of "Waiting for Guffman" would come up with if he had a mind to make a "Mad Max: Fury Road" knockoff, but that would be insulting to Corky St. Clair.

  • One can imagine Franco and his buddies seeing The Bad Batch or watching Mad Max: Fury Road, renting some motor bikes and dirtying some clothes, and then realizing they forgot to write an actual movie.

    May 25, 2018 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • Franco's film really is awful, but it's also weirdly watchable - if only for Jovovich's eye-popping turn and for the spectacle of Waterhouse stomping through the desert with her catwalk-model strut.

    Feb 28, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The look and feel of the post apocalyptic world is tired and uninspired. The synthetic plot line is derivative of Cherry 2000, which is a vastly superior film in every way.

    A hackneyed Mad Max rip-off, Future World is a poor excuse for a dystopian thriller. In a war ravaged apocalyptic future the leader of a group of marauders finds and activates an android, but when he orders her to kill a young boy searching for medicine to cure his mother she turn on him. Featuring James Franco, Milla Jovovich, and Lucy Liu, the cast isn't too bad; but Suki Waterhouse's android performance is lacking. And the script doesn't help much, offering little to explain the android's evolution toward sentience or why the dystopian world is the way that it is. Also, the sets and costumes just look cheap, giving off a real B-movie feel. While it's entertaining at times, Future World is a derivative and poorly made film.
