    First of all, if you want to watch an action sci-fi, DON'T watch this It's not another green screen, super effects, action heroes, bad monsters movie. It requires some thinking and self-criticism to do.This one provokes these things for the viewer. The whole concept is original and very very up to date with modern consumerism. The subtle dark humor is also a big plus. Although not a grade-A it still is a very nice film. Expand

    Branded is a intellectual movie that uses the marketing/advertising industry to illustrate the mindless consumerism and herding of society. The cast is great, the acting is great, the special effects are used perfect for the movie and the story explains how society is manipulated by crooked corporations and politicians. Branded is not going to be liked by people that are delusional about serious topics. Branded is what I would call an adventure critique. Good movies that go with Branded are Dreams From My Real Father, America: Freedom to Fascism, The Matrix, They Live, Death By China and any of the Alex Jones Documentaries. Expand

    A great movie. It's nice to see something different than the mediocre films that keep coming out of Hollywood. The acting was very good, the script was good, and the visuals were great. Well, there were some weird moments and some parts were exaggerated, but overall this movie was very, very good.

    The film is an ingenious, deranged, bloated, and just plain batshit crazy riff on advertising and the mad men and women it creates and/or consumes. Heady stuff, but it's no "How to Get Ahead in Advertising." This film is absolutely mental, and not in a good way, either.

    Branded has ideas, but unfortunately, the ideas are reeking batshit nuts, especially once the cheaply animated "brand" monsters, which might not actually exist, start flying around like Ghostbusters mistakes biting one another. You've been warned.
