    I have yet to see it, but I'm getting the impression that its a Shadowrun movie without the licensing fees for the name.

    Watched it the other night, was pretty entertaining.

    I thought the concept was more Alien Nation, but turns out it's Lord of the Rings :-)

    So in many ways yeah it's Shadowrun, but modern day instead of cyberpunk.

    Premise is that after a very Lord of the Rings battle with the Dark Lord, 2000 years ago, this is where society has progressed to, which is basically modern LA. Definitely worth a watch.

    I watched it last night also after seeing the first few minutes at a friends house. Was predictable but pretty good.
    I would condemn the apathetic but I really don't care.
    Best sig ever, if I could make it fit. http://www.unrepentantgaming.com/for...l=1#post696841

    But for the MC being a cop this story reminds me a bit of the Shadowrun book Changling.

    Grab some popcorn and your favorite drink and just enjoy. I liked it.

    Yep. So imagine Bright with cybernetics, more dystopia, and more elf-hate. Then its Shadowrun.

    It would be cool if they ever made a Shadowrun movie. That was one of my favorite RPGs in the 90s.

    That would be great.

    My dream game is basically Shadowrun story meets Mass Effect/Deux Ex mechanics.

    They say that life's a carousel spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
    The world is full of Kings and Queens who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
    And they'll tell you black is really white, that the moon is just the sun at night
    And when you walk in golden halls you get to keep the gold that falls
    It's Heaven and Hell, oh no!

    I enjoyed it quite a lot to be honest.... It's a strange mix, but somehow, it manages to make something ridiculous (lord of the rings + our society) into something interesting
    I love how most of the story was implicit and you get to play with theories and whatnot.
