A group of 10 young men and women wake up in
claustrophobic maze in the year 2154.
They must decipher the codes and survive the deadly maze as Adam (Alec
Baldwin) controls the maze’s walls and sends security guards to guide the group
when they get off the grid. People
watch the game known as the Quest where only one will survive where the
survivor will get freedom along with three others. The losers will die along
with the people
they want free.
ANDRON is an Italian produced sci-fi action
movie rip-off of
THE MAZE RUNNER meets THE HUNGE RGAMES meets THE MATRIX. It is a poorly directed
and written movie
that the CGI backgrounds and the actors
can’t save this muddled mess. Alec Baldwin’s inclusion as a game master gives
up the game too soon and robs the early part of the plot of its mystery. I hope
the sequel doesn’t get made. Go watch THE
HUNGER GAMES or THE MAZE RUNNER again instead.
ANDRON VFX BREAKDOWNS looks at what VFX works
doesn’t work as well.
ANDRON BACKSTAGE is a behind-the-scenes featurette
and crew interviews
Also included on the DVD
are previews for other releases from Momentum Pictures
FINAL ANALYSIS: Run far away from this MAZE RUNNER/
RGAMES rip-off and don’t buy or rent ANDRON.
It isn’t worth your money and neither is the sequel the ending sets
itself up for.
