Despite bad ratings, really enjoyable. Give it a chance
26 November 2014 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

First of all, I'd like to state that i'm definitely no movie critic. I've thought about writing reviews now and then, but i'm just not that good with words, that I can write something that's actually enjoyable to read, so I mostly stick to ratings on IMDb. This is actually my first review and I will keep it short.

All that aside, lets talk about 'The Anomaly', since I'm here to write about a movie and not why I don't write/do write reviews. The reason I'm doing this is simple, because I think this movie is underrated (at this time it holds a 4.8 on IMDb), and I don't see why. I had pretty low expectancies because of this low rating, but I found that it was actually quite enjoyable. I'm not saying it's perfect, it clearly isn't, but I've seen so many garbage that was a lot worse while they got 6+ ratings, that I really don't see how this happened.

OK, the fighting-scene's were lame, no doubt about that, and I couldn't help myself from getting angry at times because of stupid decisions the characters made (read: bad writing), but despite all that, I really liked the storyline. It is something that mostly hasn't been done before, and I can appreciate that. The acting wasn't to bad either, except for the little boy (Alex) maybe, but since he's just a child and luckily has very little screen time, I didn't mind. All in all, I think it's an enjoyable, quite clever sci-fi/action B-movie, which is definitely worth watching, so don't let the low rating scare you, like it almost scared me, and give it a try. You might like it

6/10
