The legendary Luke Goss (Hellboy 2) stars alongside Superman himself Dean Cain, and Jess Impiazzi (The Seven, Dangerous Game) in OVERRIDE, a terrifically entertaining, smartly plotted mix of Ex Machina and I, Robot, about a futuristic reality show using an alluring female android that goes badly wrong, produced by Amar Adatia and Ada Chyrowska.
Ria (Jess Impiazzi) is a young woman who finds herself reliving the same day over and over. Each day Ria wakes up to her normal routine but finds a different person playing her husband ‘Jack’ by her side. Why? Because Ria is actually the star of her own reality show ‘A DAY WITH RIA’.
Each husband is a contestant, there to show the world what they are made of. Ria re-lives her perfect 1950’s housewife day over and over again, until one day her routine becomes tiresome and Ria holds the current Jack (Charlie Clapham) to ransom.
This Jack also happens to be the Vice President (Dean Cain) of the USA’s son. These dramatic turns of events mean the public discovers the true massive conspiracy behind Ria, her husband(s) and one man’s (Luke Goss) secret vendetta against the Vice President.
Stylishly filmed, with sleek effects and a pulsing soundtrack, and a terrific performance from Impiazzi as a seriously sultry ‘perfect wife’ - the ‘Reality Interface Android’ (R.I.A) who goes off the rails, the film wouldn’t look out of place as a slick and sexy feature-length Black Mirror episode.
As well as pop-idol-turned-prolific-action-star Goss, the film also features much-loved 80s pop star Sinitta and Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt; as well Charlie Clapham (Hollyoaks, Kick Ass 2), Dean Cain (Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), Leon Ockenden (Coronation Street, Mr Selfridge), and Amar Adatia (Jags from EastEnders), who also produced the film.
Packed with action, dark satire and twists, and crammed with quirky details of what the world might look like in twenty years’ time, OVERRIDE joins the ranks of recent dystopian techno thrillers like Upgrade as a wild ride into a future world gone awry.
