This is a sort of One Million years BC meets Buck Rogers in the 25th Century meets the Omega Man or Time Machine [Samantha Mumba version]. Set in a post apocalyptic future the human race survives in small isolated pockets, the rest of humanity having been turned into savage mutants bent on murder and destruction by genetic engineering gone awry. When one of these outposts is attacked by the encroaching mutants, a small group attempt to discover if there are any other settlements 'out there'. In comes Sean bean as a 'survivor who seems to have done okay on his own [well with his wife & child] The band learn there is a cure -a yellow powder and so their trek begins in a weak Lord of the Rings sort of journey where Sean has a number of 'friends' who have links with other outposts.
It all sounds much better than it really is. The script has numerous errors for the picky amongst you and the small band originally give themselves a day to venture forth. The world seems ever so small when you consider the time they seem to be travelling yet they have little knowledge of it all and the terrain changes very quickly. That aside, its a watchable film but suffers from a low budget and some ill conceived plot lines where they manage to come and go with far too much ease.
If you like the doom and gloom of the post apocalyptic and don't mind a made for TV approach then this will probably do you well. It is watchable and entertaining, its just that it seems a bit lacklustre given the story outline and a lot more could have been achieved. Don't pay too much for it and you'll probably think it's fine.

The Lost Future is a clever storyline that never truly developed, probably due its smaller budget. The predominantly young cast does a very good job with limited characters. Good acting and the passion to make a good movie makes for some good scenes later on. There are also some clever ideas, and good CGI later in the film.
In terms of the final product, there are limitations. The sense of geographical scale, important to the storyline, didn't seem to develop well into the final movie. The film will only appeal to a smaller range of people.

Hannah Tointon plays her small part well and may be one to watch out for in future. Sean Bean's performance and character is brilliant. The bonus features are good, and show that the film could have been something really special if it had more resources.

I'm glad I bought this film and will watch it a few times. Renting first would be a good idea.

What do you look for in a film? If it's:

1. Action
2. Interesting story
3. A believable cast
4. Something philosophical...

then this film is for you! I don't get a lot of choice with films, I'm an Amazon Prime member so we don't get the latest films. But I picked this one even though I was very dubious after reading the reviews.

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Don't expect it to be Schindler's List, but it's a tale about about what people might do in a Post-apocalyptic world, sans zombies. It's different from other films, and I think 90% of the cast was completely convincing and the CGI was was better than big budget films like The Green Lantern.

I love Sean Bean but that doesn't bias me towards this film, even though he was the only actor I recognised it was still an enjoyable film that wasn't completely predictable, it had some new elements along with old ideas (think: The Time Machine).

I find it hard, very hard, to find films that I don't bitch about because of cheesy stories, or crap acting, and I hate Hollywood's attitude of throwing money and big effects at a written story in an attempt to make it appealing. I don't watch films twice but if a friend wanted to see this film then I would sit with them and watch it for a second time.

If you're an Amazon Prime member then surprisingly, yet honestly, this is one of the best films you can watch for free (I've watched a lot of them). And Sean Bean is such a great actor (it's not a 5-minute cameo)!

I like to think that I am pretty broad minded, and don't mind having my credulity stretched to breaking point, so long as the film entertains. I loved that recent sci fi film "Outlander" about a man from outer space landing amongst Vikings and fighting a pretty nasty looking varmit. Total nonsense, but great fun. This film certainly stretches credulity, but doesn't quite manage to entertain in the same way. You can just imagine the movie makers sat round the table on this one. One says "Lets do a cave man story". Another one says "Na, they did that with Raquel Welch a few years back". Another guy says "I know, why not set it in a post apocalyptic future". Much muttering takes place. Someone else says "Why don't we throw in a few monsters like giant sloths and Mammoths". The guy in charge of finances says "Well we can afford one sloth". Another guy says "Why don't we throw in some mutants like those ones in Lord of the Rings". Much excitement around the table! Another adds "Why not have some miraculous yellow powder that is the only cure for the mutant disease". The studio boss, turning to his finance man says "I love it". Money man says "Well if we can film it in South Africa where it should be nice and cheap I think its a goer". And so "The Lost Future" made for TV film was born. Well it either happened like that, or somebody was sniffing something they shouldn't have been.

The makers somehow persuaded Sean Bean to play a major role. Perhaps a trip to Cape Town tickled his fancy, or he had just had a bad day at the races. We follow a group of sartorially challenged cave men under attack from some very odd mutants whose movements would certainly attract the attention of the girls at the local disco. They can bounce to incredible heights and run like a cheetah on all fours.
