Thankfully the creativity and imagination of movie makers can be maintained behind that massive screen. We all know of scenes or functional movie sets that are the epitome of grotesque, darkness, and sinister living. Thank goodness we are not bound to the appalling establishments that are featured in some major films.
1) Zion (The Matrix)
Take for example the formidable city of Zion from the Matrix Trilogy. While it is a symbol of hope, throughout much of these films, Zion appears to be cold, dark, and hard. The few times that producers feature colors other than black, blue, and grey, the orange glow is only from the burning embers within ominous, hellacious caverns. And of course the ever present threat that intelligent and murderous machines are looping just outside the underground city’s gates ready to kill all of the city’s inhabitants doesn’t really make this city high on one’s “must visit” list.
