2014 Certificate: 12

Synopsis

In a Britain of the future ruled over by robots, the oppressed masses are implanted with tracking chips and anyone who stays out past the curfew is reduced to a pile of ash. A group of kids - including orphaned youngster Connor (Milo Parker) and enterprising teen Sean (Callan McAuliffe) - are looked after by kindly ex-teacher Kate (Gillian Anderson). While messing around, they discover how to de-activate their chips and make plans to stage a rebellion. Ben Kingsley plays a geography teacher with an agenda as director Jon Wright follows his alien invasion comedy Grabbers with another cool slice of home-grown sci-fi.
