Reportedly the highest budgetted Australian sci-fi film, sadly it’s notable only a small percentage was spent on script development or cast rehearsals. 2067 is a clunky mess of a feature that can be described at best as moderately engaging.

As climate change sees the forests burning and the world running out of oxygen, so a private manufacturer of oxygen sends one ill-suited man (Ethan Whyte – Kodi Smit-McPhee, X Men: Dark Phoenix, Let Me In) into the future to find the cure. A message has been received: SEND ETHAN WHYTE. But not all is what it seems as long-term friend, Jude (Ryan Kwanten – Mystery Road, Kidnapping Mr Heineken) is dispatched the 400 years to support him.

A pathetic Smit-McPhee gratingly wails his way through the narrative as Kwanten tries his hardest with abysmal material: meanwhile Deborah Mailman (The Sapphires, Bran Nue Dae), back in real time, stands and delivers her dialogue as if reading (badly) from autocue. A surfeit of embarassment from director Seth Larney (Tombiruo).
