Trivia

D.A.R.P.A scientist Dr. Clyne constantly relies on the supporting Delta Force soldiers to keep him alive throughout the movie which is ironic considering the actor who plays him (James Badge Dale) has played military roles (coincidentally Special Forces as well). Dale played a U.S. Army Ranger in World War Z (2013), U.S. Marine PFC Robert Leckie in The Pacific (2010), and an ex-Navy SEAL security contractor in 13 Hours (2016). He also played Eric Savin in Iron Man Three (2013) who is actually a Lieutenant-Colonel. See more »

Goofs

Several instances of character lines overdubbed. Lips do not match the lines, but even when lips are not visible the overdubs are very loud and obvious. See more »

Quotes

Sgt. Comstock: Oh, you haven't seen it. I've seen it.
Capt. Sessions: You know I believe in God, John.
Sgt. Comstock: This is the opposite of God.

Not Awful...
10 December 2016 | by chazviewSee all my reviews

It's not exactly a 'Netflix-Original'. Started out as a joint production between Universal and Legendary Films with a budget of 70-million. After completion, Universal wasn't happy with it, Legendary didn't like their feedback and they had a falling out -- the planned 2016 summer theatrical release was canceled. Chinese-owned Legendary Films shopped around, Netflix picked it up as an already finished movie and branded it as a 'Netflix-Original'.

Not awful. Competent, experienced cast; OK story and decent effects contribute to a production that had some budget to work with. A few plot-holes here and there, like beings that can fly over things, yet laying iron shavings on the ground provides a barrier of protection because they can't step in it. Contrived ending, but so what -- it's an enjoyable watch... :-)
