This movie looks absolutely amazing. This is just a concept trailer, done on a very low budget. These guys are trying to get more publicity so tell all your friends!!!

Here is a link to their youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/GrayStateMovie/videos?view=0

The movie does look great, but the overall concept isn't original. The gov't versus the people, or as they say in the trailer, "The Second American Revolution" is a pretty repetitive theme for movies/games. Overall though, it looks great.

Not really, I can't think of any off the top of my head. But its like WWII movies, there's lots of them but they are still really good.

V for Vendetta, Total Recall, and the Hunger Games is what first comes to mind. I'm sure there is a lot more.

Yeah, but other than V for Vendetta, this is the only one that would actually pertain to real life. We couldn't just wake up tomorrow and be in the Hunger Games could we?

The concept is that it's a dystopian flim, not necessarily a, "Wake up and gov't runs the world" flim; probably because that type of film is too long to say Razz

Oh, and to add unto Total's "Children of Men" which was a great flim, I can also recall "Equilibrium."

Does look good, and I what I like about it is that they're using RFIDs (which are being used as we speak in a variety of things, just not in people) to track/monitor the population.

There have been several "government vs. the people" type of movies but considering this is a low-budget film, they can surprise you with that they can develop.

Actually 4 states put them in their drivers licenses, the DHS wants all states to do it. There's been stories about people getting pulled over all the time out of no where, for no reason with RFID chips in their Drivers licenses. They put their Drivers licenses in the microwave to destroy the RFIDs and they have not had problems with being pulled over anymore. If all states do this they'll be able to track everyone with a drivers licence. If a car passes by a cop and the driver destroyed his RFID or doesn't have it with him he would be breaking the law. Congress also passed a law in 2005 requiring all US citizens to carry ID cards with RFIDs in them. Scary stuff, and its real.

It looks alright. id watch it, nothing really special that sticks out in the trailer though, from what i see looks like your typical modern government control movie.

The thing is, they haven't even started filming the actual movie. That's just the concept.

It's a good concept though. A lot of independent films have actually done a better job than some blockbuster, multi-million dollar films.

They don't rely so much on graphics, animations, etc. Indy films tend to focus more on the story, character development, the "meta" game.
