Terminus

Please choose a format above.

Put on your favorite action beret, because Terminus is one of the most European action movies we’ve ever encountered. It’s a French/German production, sort of a Euro Mad Max full of big ideas that don’t really come together, kind of like Euro Disney, or a Coca-Cola served at room temperature.

The least European part of the movie by far is Karen Allen of Indiana Jones fame. Instead of bantering with Harrison Ford, she spends this movie in the company of an intelligent truck with a realistic mouth. We’ll let you read that again. Yes, the focus of the movie Terminus is a self-driving truck that speaks with a huge, fleshy, human mouth. On top of that, the Mouth Truck speaks in what we can only describe as the French idea of “urban slang.” The Cybertruck wishes it could be this off-putting.

Karen Allen and the Mouth Truck are part of a big game, designed by a creepy little blonde boy and his team of pretentious scientists. What’s the point of the game, exactly? We’re hoping you can tell us. What’s the point of Terminus, exactly? Again, we’d love your help with that. And what even is the Terminus, exactly? Answer that one for extra credit.

Hop in the nearest mouthed vehicle and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for the extremely over-complicated sci-fi road race that is Terminus!
