Cartel 2045 is a 2017 movie that's also out under the title Juarez 2045. The movie is set in the area around Juarez but it was filmed a good way from Mexico, with Salt Lake City filling in. It might come as no surprise to find the movie is set in 2045. The drug war between Mexico and the US gets ramped up a notch when Danny Trejo's drug cartel acquires fighting robot tech. The robots have been outlawed but he's got some and in typical cartel style they've been blinged out with gold panels.
Danny's a cruel and vicious sort of man, he kills people around him all the time, enemies and his workers alike. With his new killbots he's top rabid dog. Instead of hunting down the robots and blowing them up with heavy artillery, the military sends in one fucked up Marine with a chip in his head and a few guys who are there to get blasted by the robots. Pretty much everyone dies by the end of the movie. They're all pretty useless in the future, those humans, and the movie isn't much better. The bots are about average TV CGI. The script is filled with poor dialog and the acting average or below. I'd give it a miss, though you might enjoy Danny boppin' around killing people and snarling.
I quite liked Ready Player One. It's based on a novel by Ernest Cline which I haven't read. Ernest wrote the screenplay with Zak Penn. Zak wrote the story to Last Action Hero, that was his first movie, and since he's worked on a lot of the Marvel Superhero movies. I enjoyed LAH a lot when it came out and it still delivers an entertaining story on repeat viewings. Ready Player One is directed by Steven Spielberg. It's a 2018 movie that's also set in 2045. Different world view, people spend a lot of their time jacked into a VR game called The Oasis. It kind of sucks in the real world, at least for anyone not at the top of the food chain.
It cost $175 mil and there's a lot of detail up on the screen. Gamers would shit to have that sort of game. In the game or in the real world, it's all covered with layers ofl CGI, all the time. Most of it's really good, you can see where a lot of the money went. It's pretty long, 140 minutes, but it moves along at lightning speed. There are so many references to film, TV, books and music, you can see a small percentage in the poster. If I looked, I bet I would find that someone has started a list. i enjoyed it enough to put it on my mental Wish List. Someday it'll get cheap enough for me and I'll see it again.
