MAN DOWN (2015), starring Gary Oldman, Shia LaBeouf, Jai Courtney and Kate Mara, tells the story of an Afghan war vet who travels home to a post-apocalyptic America.
Here’s the synopsis:
In a savage post-apocalyptic America, U.S. Marine GABRIEL DRUMMER (Shia LaBeouf), searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son, JONATHAN (Charlie Shotwell) and wife, NATALIE (Kate Mara). Accompanied by his best friend DEVIN ROBERTS (Jai Courtney), a hard-nosed marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, the two intercept CHARLES (Clifton Collins, Jr.), an apocalyptic survivor carrying vital information about the whereabouts of Gabriel’s family.
As we revisit the past, we are guided in unraveling the puzzle of Gabriel’s experience and what will eventually lead us to the origin of this war-torn America.
Looks interesting, and backed by a decent cast. I’m hoping the whole thing doesn’t turn out to be in his head, though.
