Movie Info

In the near future climate change has wreaked havoc in parts of the American Midwest. In its attempt to take hold of an economic recession, a government agency called the Humanity Bureau exiles members of society deemed unproductive and banishes them to a colony known as New Eden. An ambitious and impartial caseworker NOAH KROSS (Nicolas Cage) investigates a case appealed by a single mother RACHEL WELLER (Sarah Lind) and her son LUCAS (Jakob Davies). Knowing the unjust fate of the innocent boy and against the wishes of his superior ADAM WESTINGHOUSE (Hugh Dillon), Kross sets off to save the lives of the mother and child and to expose the truth about the Humanity Bureau's secrets once and for all.

  • Oh, The Humanity Bureau!

  • Director Rob W. King and screenwriter Dave Schultz's engaging effort has enough standard genre elements to satisfy more open-minded sci-fi fans, and its political-allegory angle is ultimately quite potent without becoming too heavy-handed.

  • This is the fate of Nicolas Cage, doomed to wander the planet in a seemingly endless cinematic purgatory, and The Humanity Bureau is his latest descent into subgenre mediocrity.

  • The main problem... is that The Humanity Bureau is not special enough to have long legs in the future, and arguably certain plot elements and concepts have been better executed in various other movies before it.

  • It's not often you see a piece of Redbox ready pulp actively attempting to double as a protest film. There's value in that, even if its packaged as dumbass schlock.

  • Bleak future films like this are done too much. And this is not one of Nicolas Cage's best performances.
