Sad to say but most of the film is trash. Though due to genre clichés and target auditory it should be. Therefore Paragon Lost will probably met all your skeptical expectations. Poor animation included. However what may surprise you is a real Mass Effect choice at the pinnacle of this film.
The choice is not between useful "thing" and human lives, but between lives of those who are close to you and single but most valuable life of your beloved. Who you'll rescue - hundreds of your neighbors and friends or just one who you care most about? When human lives are at stake simple math won't work - you can't justify sacrifice of single person in sake of saving numerous others.
