Netflix's IO Review: Mackie's Post-Apocalyptic Drama

Netflix’s IO is an interesting take on post-apocalyptic survival films. Instead of dwelling on a given threat or offering broad strokes that are reflective of societal ills, it presents a more intimate story, one centered on the importance of human relationships. It isn’t always successful. The subdued pace and muted thematic elements that allowed for such nuance also reduced the film’s impact. IO never becomes boring (although there are patches that run the risk of dullness), but it's also not as noteworthy as it could have been either.
