It's no Avatar or anything but deserves a higher rating
20 November 2015 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

The current rating when I'm writing this is 4.6/10, which is pretty ridiculous cause it's a perfectly watchable.

It's sort of like a British Red Dawn meets Transformers teen movie but with a lot smaller budget, it manages to do well with the budget it has tho I mean compared to like Asylum or SyFy movies the CGI in it is great.

Sure it has quite a bit of plot-holes but overall it didn't take me out from the movie and managed to sustain my interest.

Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley have important roles but it's primarily the unknown younger cast who's the main focus in the movie and they do just fine.

Overall is it a movie that will blow you away? Maybe not, but there are way worse ways of spending 90 minutes of your time for sure... Like watching an actual bad movie, because this is not.
