Hammerman Ikon

Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Director: Miguel Sapochnik
Cast: Tom Hanks, Caleb Landry Jones

In the near future, the ozone layer is in tatters, and the Earth has turned into a scorchingly hot wasteland. As the weather events become more and more extreme, engineer Finch Weinberg, one of the very few survivors, packs his dog and his robots in an RV and heads west. This post-apocalyptic drama lands somewhere between I Am Legend, Wall-E, The Road, and Cast Away, if you will. The story is not terribly original or particularly harrowing, but it is charming and entertaining. Jeff the robot is an amusing if very anthropomorphic character. The film is visually stunning.
