      Ranny L Future TX is so fun to watch! It keeps you on the edge of your seat and has an unpredictable ending. The cinematography is fantastic and the dual messages (living in the present and our destinies are based on the choices we make) are timely. The story is about two tweens, Dylan Wrench (Arran Kemp) and Molly Slide (Adele Congreve) who are given the opportunity to save the world before "Critical Impact" occurs. They purchase phones that communicate with a mystery man from the year 2048 named Future TX. The children's task is to locate a botnet so that it can be destroyed and thereby save the world. Dylan and Molly are attacked by drones controlled by a mad scientist who is one of the Folley Brothers (Griff Rhys Jones). Dylan and Molly have to choose who they can trust -- the Folley Brothers or another teen named Dominic Santiago (James Grogan) -- to help them prevent "Critical Impact." There is an exciting and surprising ending. This is a wonderful, fun and wholesome film with good messages. It will keep the audience on the edge of their seats wondering what will happen next. The story is about the impact of technology on our lives, which is a very relevant topic given the expanding use of artificial intelligence. It is easy to relate to the children in the film and their advanced knowledge of electronics reflects reality. The story is easy to follow but I really like that the film is not predictable. The cinematography is wonderful. I really feel as if I was in the United Kingdom throughout the film. There are very interesting shots of the sky, landscapes, and buildings. The movie was filmed in Bournemouth, UK, which suits the story line. It is a quaint and beautiful town with lots of open spaces. The original music, played by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, is not only beautiful, it also provides the right amount of drama to various scenes. The special effects include the use of drones sent by the evil scientist to locate and attack the children along with a hand-held computer that can project into space. They are very believable. The actors are very suited for the film. Dylan and Molly are very likable and the actors portray them well. The scientists, the Folley Brothers, are played by the same actor who skillfully plays the good twin and the bad twin. My favorite parts are the scenes with Molly's mother, Saffron (Catriona Knox). Saffron talks to Dylan and Molly as if they are in a Shakespearian play, which is very amusing. The production values are excellent. The film has dual messages. One is to live in the present and the other is that our destinies are based on the choices we make. I give Future TX 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to18, plus adults.
