Paul’s review of The Humanity Bureau

Humanity Bureau is a Canadian science fiction film released on 6th April 2018 and stars Nicholas Cage as Noah Cross, a government agent tasked with relocating people who are no longer contributing to society after the war that has devastated America’s lush resources. They are promised a new life at New Eden where they can live a meaningful existence again. On one visit, he meets a mother and her son, Lucas, who are desperately trying to avoid being relocated following rumours that the New Eden project is not what it is promised to be. He seems to bond with the family, particularly the boy, and he delays submitting his report to allow Lucas to perform in his school recital. His boss is concerned by this and warns Noah but also starts to covertly investigate him. Meanwhile, Noah also starts to make investigations into the Eden Project.

This was a really good story and the acting was great throughout, you could really feel the tension building and some scenes were upsetting. It will make you think what would happen should the worse happen to our fragile planet due to humanity’s incompetence. The movie is rated R/15 (PG-13) for violence as there is quite a lot of blood. I really enjoyed this movie and would rate it a strong 4 out of 5. I wouldn’t add it to my collection but I would watch it again.
