New sci-fi thriller RUBIKON from Austria. However, because to the wide range of the cast, English is utilized the most frequently. In addition, the story is set in a kind of international space station where the majority of individuals speak English.

This sci-fi movie from Austria is being released by IFC, which, as we have previously noted, is a sign of high quality. Rarely do things turn out badly. Definitely not in terms of the performance, the quality of the production, or the overall style. But the story is a totally different affair. In addition, I don't really like the direction this one goes.

One international space station serves as the setting for almost all of Rubikon's actions. The (very near) future has here. In a future where companies have taken the place of governments and countries are no longer important, Instead, corporations control and govern a sizable chunk of the planet.

So, not that far off from the reality that we actually live in right now, you know. Just not as obvious as it is shown.

Famine and war are real realities because we completely ruined the ecosystem. Naturally, breathing the air is not the best option either. As we witness two astronauts (of a type) arrive at the space station to replace some of the other occupants, a terrible catastrophe happens on Earth.One international space station serves as the setting for almost all of Rubikon's action.

The ending of Rubikon ruined so much for me! *minor spoilers*

When I say that the Rubikon ending ruined it for me, I actually mean most of the final half of the movie. So many things happen that you spot a mile away. However, you spot these “twists” thinking; Surely, they’re not going where I think they’re going?!

And yes. Yes, they are going there!

So, when I say that two people arrive. One a woman, the other a man. And that they can’t get in touch with anyone back on Earth and just might be the last people on Earth (with the last remaining astronaut from the former crew), you should get that icky feeling that this is going to turn romantic.

And, of course, it does. They don’t even wait too long. Which makes this “sci-fi thriller” even more of a slow-burn experience since now we also need to see them be lovey-dovey. I mean, come on. Sure, you might be the humans left alive, but it’s only been a minute (figuratively speaking) and these two don’t even like each other.

If you can guess what might happen when two people start having relations on a regular basis, then you’ve already guessed the next part of the story. Call it a twist or a natural evolution of the story. I just call it very unnecessary and completely draining out what made the story interesting.

You can watch Rubikon in theaters or at home!

Magdalena Lauritsch is the director of Rubikon and this is her feature film debut. In terms of style, there is plenty working well, so I’m still intrigued to see what she comes up with next. Magdalena Lauritsch also wrote the script along with Jessica Lind while Elisabeth Schmied is credited as a “story consultant”.

This movie intrigued me at first, so I was initially quite positive and expected a good story. However, by the end of its 1-hour and 50-minute runtime (which, yes, is too long), I was just irritated. With many elements. Some of which even hit on some extremely current topics and not in any good way.

Admittedly, I get even more irritated by the fact that I wanted to like this film, and did at first, only to ultimately be confronted with so many tropes and stereotypes.

You had me at first, Rubikon, but lost me completely before the ending. And yes, even that very final scene is very easy to guess ahead of time. Not bad, just not very fresh or interesting either.

Rubikon is out in theaters and everywhere you rent movies from July 1, 2022..
