Code 8 – Jeff Chan (2019)

In a near retro-futuristic past people with ‘special powers’ were helpful in the economy. When machines were invented that could do the same, these people became less essential and eventually criminalised. A bit of a sad basis for a story in my opinion.

Of course we follow one of these people with power. Connor lives with his (also super powered) sick mother and they have a hard time raising enough money to get around.

Connor is picked up for a job which proves to be criminal and the prospect of making money that way makes him side with a criminal group.

The story has no surprises. There are a few alright findings in the film, but overall the film is perhaps not boring, but not very interesting either.
