dark fantasy review

What went wrong with Netflix’s “IO”?

It’s the end of the world as we know it… and it feels depressing.

The new Netflix original “IO” tells the story of a young scientist who is searching for a way to save a dying Earth. She finds a connection with a man who’s racing to catch the last shuttle off the planet. It sounds intriguing enough, but something with the movie felt like it was… missing.

Check out my full review as I dive into what exactly that was.

  1. Great review Chauncey! I felt like I was watching paint dry for 1.5 hours with this film. Great premise, poorly executed. I’d recommend, if you haven’t seen it, a little gem called The Divide (2011). Great film about “the end”, but done so creatively and very intimately in a way that actually works.
