State Zero, 2015 - ★★★½

State Zero, 2015 - ★★★½

Professional, visual tour de force that isn't a stones throw off Hollywood blockbuster quality. Swedish 17 minute short 'State Zero' felt eerily reminiscent of Halo's ODST's futuristic soldiers surveying their former home zone, only New Mombasa is replaced with a sumptuous looking decayed Stockholm.

On the evidence of this I see no reason Andree Wallin couldn't go on to have a similar impact on futureshock sci-fi that 'District 9's' Neill Blomkamp has managed to have. Just check Wallins concept art, from Halo 4 through to the upcoming Star War's films. Even the Muse like end credit music by a band named XOOX was classy and deserves to be big.
