Goofs

Quaid was standing in the clear a full two seconds before he shot Reginald, yet neither Sarah nor Breecher, who both had loaded guns, got a shot off until after the fatal bullets had already been delivered, making it at least 5 seconds that they failed to act as their "tough" characters should have in a gunfight.

General Corbin Dandridge: How did you find me?
Mathias Breecher: A snake is not hard to find when you flip over enough rocks, General.

Because dialogue and delivery matters
30 March 2020 | by TroubladoreSee all my reviews

Have you ever seen someone ride their bicycle straight into a wall for no apparent reason? That's this movie, but in slow motion. You feel awkward watching it happen, you wonder why you're still watching as it happens, and you feel compelled to fast forward through the experience just to confirm, "Yup, they crashed alright."

The death of this movie is the dialogue. The premise was fine, the setting was fine, the actors seemed like they were capable of so, so much more. I literally cannot comprehend how someone can film actors delivering such awful dialogue in the most wooden, uninspired, and awkward ways. I kept watching just because I couldn't believe someone would go to the trouble to create a whole movie like this. Didn't anyone think, "You know, this might play better if we spoke like human beings?" Actors were going in and out of period, the language almost never fit the people or the situation, everything was drawn out without drama.

I actually wondered, at one point, if the whole screenplay had been written by a machine learning algorithm.

Ugh. Skip this movie, forever. I watched it for you, and you didn't enjoy it.
