Slow. Glacial. Plodding. The adjectives don’t adequately describe the utter absence of action or drama included in the movie IO, The Last On Earth. To be fair IO isn’t supposed to be a fast paced action romp. This movie aims for heady and thought provoking. The problem is that it misses. The intended discussion of human nature, culture, the value of love and basic human interaction, as well as the responsibility of humanity to be the ecological caretakers of Earth, is disjointed and jumbled, without focus or clarity. Paired with a story that has a paper thin plot without an antagonist or identifiable protagonist or conflict, results in a lackluster and boring tale that also isn’t though provoking. This movie is utterly forgettable.
