Shocker: Arnold Schwarzenegger's Son Spotted In A Post-Apocalyptic World
Go North takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all the adults have died and the jocks have taken over, running what's left of civilization further into the ground. The plot is reminiscent of the Luke Perry series Jeremiah, which had a decent run on Showtime in the early 2000s, but Jeremiah had much better production values.
As a huge fan of post-apocalyptic anything, I generally give any move in the genre a chance. Despite a lot of ridiculous things, the acting by the leads and the atmosphere kept me glued to the tube and Go North until the bitter end.
10 Things I Learned Watching Go North
1. In the community of shacks and miserable kids where the movie opens, the punishment for possession of the Bible is whatever some maniac thinks. Usually, you are forced to leave this really shitty place for the outside world, which does not seem threatening at all.
2. A car battery can be used to power an alarm clock indefinitely.
3. All the adults died suddenly (not more than a few years prior) and the remaining kids do next to nothing, yet somehow every home is boarded up and every structure looks as thought it has gone through centuries of neglect.
4. If your brother is the leader of the group and his lead henchman sexually assaults you, why do you not tell your brother?
5. The only working car left is in cherry-perfect condition and is solely used for the retrieval of the leader's sister who wanted to leave, not for gathering food or scouting the surrounding area.
