F.A.L.T.U - External Reviews

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Because we live in a world so imperfect, FALTU creates an alternate reality. In which they show us a way to make the world perfect. So what if that route itself is as imperfect as the system it's trying to correct? So, while it is lively and fun, FALTU isn't something that'll stay with you after you've walked out of the theaters. Though I think it wanted you to, what with the strong message it tries to convey masked under all that light-heartedness. Oh yeah, and that one brilliant dance performance in the climax.
