Product description

Product Description

Utopia is a cult graphic novel rumoured to have predicted the worst disasters of the late twentieth century. Dismissed as the fevered imaginings of a madman by most, and idolised by a handful, only one thing seems certain about Utopia: come into contact with it and you won't be safe for long.

When a small group of normal people (including an IT consultant, student and child) find themselves in possession of the manuscript of Utopia, they realise they are at the centre of a nightmarish conspiracy turned real. Targeted by a shadowy organisation known only as The Network, they are left with one option if they want to stay alive: they have to run, avoiding even being caught even on CCTV. The Network is everywhere: in government, in business, in charge. A secret organisation constrained neither by borders nor common morality. Nobody knows what their plan is, just that they will stop at nothing to find the original manuscript of Utopia.

Utopia asks what if the conspiracy nuts are right? What if people are trying to control our lives, doctor our food, experiment upon us, kill us? Fast, terrifying, funny and brutal, it is a massive new drama/conspiracy thriller.

From Amazon.co.uk

The central concept of Utopia remains, right to the end of the final episode, its strength. The idea is that the Utopia of the show's title is a cult graphic novel, one that's said to have predicted a collection of terrible disasters. The manuscript to it finds its way into the hands of a group of seemingly everyday, normal people, and the problems start from there. Are the group being paranoid? Are they being followed and watched? Are the conspiracy theories correct?

It's an interesting collection of questions, and Utopia is happy to tackle them. Set across six episodes, the plot tends to be a little all over the place at times, but there are so many interesting threads to follow, that that's an easy thing to forgive. Furthermore, the execution is strong, with some excellent direction eking the most out of the concept.

When you get to the last episode of Utopia, there's much to ponder and discuss. And there's an argument that the show doesn't ultimately live up to its intriguing concept. However, it does deliver, and delivers very well. At its best, it's gripping television drama, and it arrives on a disc packed with interesting extra features. The highlight? Try the audio commentary that comes with the first episode, or The World Of Utopia feature. You get a good deal for your money here... --Jon Foster

Absolutely stunning in every way, superb cinemtography, acting, plot, and the soundtrack is beautifully crafted and sets the very dark and chilling atmosphere perfectly, there is very strong violence throughout, and the whole premise of the plot is disturbing and poignant.

Totally recommended.

As ever, the less you know about the plot, the more you are likely to enjoy it. A motley group comes together, and despite the brutality and cruelty, at the end we are left with some hope for humanity, and some faith in human decency.

This is an unusual example of a distinctly niche programme delivered with confidence, conviction and a decent budget. The initial scenario relates to a missing graphic novel, which should narrow down the potential audience dramatically, the first episode includes a lot of violence, including the most sympathetic character being tortured in uncomfortable detail, though not full-on torture porn detail.

Often on screen violence is actually quite entertaining, instead here we have seemingly endless innocent bystanders murdered, sometimes interrogated first. The eventual effect is that we risk becoming as brutalised as the characters themselves. The mix of brutality with casual expediency, is convincingly unsettling and probably much closer to how the world actually operates than the far more usual dramatic heroics.

Apparently viewing figures dropped very dramatically after the first episode. However this is unfair, if you can make it to the end of the first episode, then this is definitely worth sticking with. It does drag at times, and is uncomfortably tense viewing pretty much all the time, but it gives us characters, situations and twists that engage and provoke. This probably sits with Shadow Line as demanding but rewarding fare, but with a far more satisfying conclusion.

Although billed as season one, it is not yet clear whether there will be another series, if there is, it will be hard pressed to keep up the quality of this one.

This has gone right up there in the pantheon of 'best ever British TV dramas'. Visually stunning (how often can you say that about UK TV drama?) shocking, funny, exhilarating and very, very clever. The opening episode may lead you to believe you are watching a sensationalist-violent for the sake of it- show however stick with it and it morphs into something very different actually quite moving, the nasty characters aren't necessarily as bad as the first appear and the sympathetic ones not as white hat wearing as you may think.
It also has an 'evil masterplan' that makes you pause for thought about how evil it really is.
The real masterstroke however comes in it's final episode, quite often the 'journey' in these twisty turny things is more involving than the destination but the conclusion is almost entirely satisfying and surprising in its tone- there are a few threads left dangling, certainly enough to warrant a second series...which has just been announced.
Not for the faint hearted and some people may find its ultra stylised tone offputting but personally I cannot recommend it highly enough.

This is essential viewing and without doubt one of the most interesting and compelling dramas I have seen for ages. The acting was top drawer and the pace of each episode was perfect. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys good drama and excellent acting. It in no way bothered me, but some of you squeamish types may not enjoy the violence.
I think a special mention must go to the actor Neil Maskell - the character of Arby is a really interesting mix of chilling and childlike. As I said though all the acting is first class! Please, please, PLEASE give this a watch - you will not be disappointed.........

Utopia is a surreal drama set in modern Britain and is basically about a global conspriscy, as not to ruin it too much for anyone else so you'll find (NO SPOLIERS HERE). Personally i found it to be a bit slow at first but after most of characters are assembled and the roles defined it quickly got a lot more interesting. the thing that defines utopia is its creepy casual attitude towards violence, sex, and view of humanity, there some particuarly upseting sceens in this series so i would reccomend steeling yourselfs for these moments.

Interesting idea, but I found it impossible to relate to the unreal world the story takes place in and the irritating, unreal characters who take centre stage. Take out the violent bits and the interrractions between the people are similar to what one would expect in a sci-fi drama made for eight year olds.
