Slick and Stunning Sci-Fi
3 November 2012 | by katelyn-moreySee all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see this movie in advance, and I have to say that I was impressed. The Rift is a simple, but well-executed science-fiction film that manages to emulate its influences without being derivative.

Great cinematography, and fantastic special effects that enhanced the story, but didn't overshadow it. If I had any criticism, it would be that the story itself needed to be a tad bit tighter--some elements were redundant, while others needed more explanation. It was a solid script; a little more tweaking would make it amazing.

All in all, I thought The Rift was a fast-paced and fun flick in the sci-fi genre, and I would definitely recommend it as a must-watch film!
