Let’s talk about Khal Drogo. The man is literally everywhere after his death in Game Of Thrones, and I’m surprised he hasn’t been typecasted yet. Half a year from now, I’ll be covering his escapades in the oceans. Talking about Bad Batch, the trailer gives us a hazy view of the premise, maybe it is trying to get the viewers accustomed to the scorching heat of its setting. We enter a dystopian world, which after George Miller’s Mad Max, has come to be associated with only wastelands and brutish characters. The visual detailing is eye-catching and there seems to be a certain quirkiness within the characters, but do not let this distract you from the commercial savory, the movie appears to be. Keanu Reeves as a Texan mob boss, Jim Carrey as some old lunatic while Momoa flaunting his pecs and artistic skills reeks of mediocre characterization. Dystopian future is a tricky setting, and it depends totally on the script’s creativity to induce entertainment through plot devices and production designing. There’s no such sign in the trailer except the lead’s torture, a long-running plot device in similar movies. One look at it and it looks like a flashy but substanceless rip-off of Mad Max, with the reaction of the critics voicing the same opinion. But if you do intend to catch a movie with a couple of friends and beers, this is definitely worth trying out!
