Description: Enter a new world of storytelling in this blockbuster “immersive cinema” experience from visionary filmmaker Robert Rodriguez (Sin City). As a rogue agent with a mysterious past, you enlist the help of enhanced super-assassin M-13 (Michelle Rodriguez) to retrieve your identity and strike against the deadly organization that created you. Also featuring Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), THE LIMIT will put you inside a high-octane 20-minute action movie like you’ve never seen!

THE LIMIT is a lean-back experience captured in a new cinematic VR format, wider than 180 degrees, that bridges the gap between large-format movies and 360-degree video. It offers ultra-high fidelity and unprecedented production value from a live-action VR film.

Review: While there are times when Robert Rodriguez’s The Limit is nauseous and dare I say it is definitely overpriced it is nevertheless exciting both as a 360 video experience and an idea in general. The good news is Michelle Rodriguez is an actor of such high calibre that she could make you believe just about anything, even when face to face her acting is highly believable and that is what makes this short experience so good. Heck, even Norman Reedus wasn’t that bad! While far from perfect I would like to see more like this, especially a full movie, or at least a series of short episodes even if that means paying a little extra per episode. But at the same time, I get that this will not be enjoyed by everyone.
