Face Shifter

I watched this film under the title "5 Galaxies" as a Red Box rental. The production has 5 short science fiction features, most of which center on character and not plot as in most science fiction. They are not interlocking as described. The earth undergoes nuclear destruction in the third one and after that everything is fine. The shorts leave off where most of your classical science fiction gets going. PLOT SPOILERS ahead. The first feature was a "Logan's Run" wherein our overpopulated planet, people willingly step out at age 40. Interesting, but abortion and sterilization would be the first options. The second feature is about June, who is going somewhere and is saying good-bye to her family in 2071. It proves to be anti-climatic and stops where it should start and this stuff should be a flashback. The third episode is a post-nuclear attack in 2099. Survivors are attempting to get to a colony on the west coast. It too ends where the "Twilight" episode would start. The fourth one was quick. It takes place in 2121. The ICS lies and Eric Roberts was in it. Sorry, fast-forwarded. The last on is in 2150 as bounty hunters are looking for a man who can face shift. It too ends where it starts to get good. It looked like I was watching the first 15 minutes of various films. Not that fun. Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

Now called 5 Galaxies

5 Galaxies has five different science fiction stories in one film. Each segment is directed by a different creative talent, including Nelson Lee, Kristen Hilkert, Amir Reichart, Vitaly Verlov and Marc-Henri Boulier. It was originally released in 2018 as A.I. Tales. If any of the films feel disjointed, blame the lack of a narrative device to hold them all together and that many of them were short films released before they were collected here. Seed: Directed by Nelson Lee, an actor who has appeared in several films such as Disney's new live action Mulan, this story is all about a man undergoing a combination birthday party and living funeral, all so an overpopulated society can keep on surviving, ala Logan's Run. Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis in the Marvel movies, shows up here. IN/FINITE: This is the story of Jane, who decides to leave the Earth and her family behind as part of the Mars One Astronaut program. It's directed by Kristen Hilkert and co-written by its star Ashlee Mundy. Phoenix 9: This short was originally made by in 2014 and is directed by Amir Reichart. A post-apocalyptic tale, it was shot in the Glamis Dunes in California's Imperial Valley, which was a location used to create Tatooine in the original Star Wars. Redux: Originally made in 2015, this segment features Eric Roberts and is all about a scientist attempting to send a mission back in time before he is killed. It's directed by Vitaly Verlov, who often works in visual effects. New York 2150: This is the pilot episode of the New York 2150 series, which was written and directed by Harry Assouline. This is, as most modern portmanteaus are, a mixed bag. There are some interesting ideas, but I prefer Amicus style anthology movies that at least are moving toward one subject or conclusion.

Disagree with most other reviewers...

While I will agree that there is NO "AI" stories, there are some thought-provoking and well acted short films. Some reviewers may have the incorrectly thought that these tales were somehow interconnected, that is not the case. Each story stands on its own in its own universe. The first film is a little head-scratch inducing, but plow through! 2nd story was a great character piece with a THUMP at the end. 3rd film made me angry as the REAL story starts where the film leaves off, (but I think that is fantastic!) 4th film begs for a deeper dive in to the universe it creates in the shortest run time of them all. Impressive, if you ask me, to create a world you desperately want to explore and do so in only a few minutes.
