Didn't learn about this movie till a week before it was released, and based on the previews alone I was thoroughly excited. The preview gave it a "Final Fantasy: Spirits Within" feel to it; however, while watching it with the same expectation I also had a feel to another blockbuster "Aliens." Both movies I loved for my own reason, and felt this movie pulled those reason into one to make this, so two thumbs up.
Actors I felt were on point, as well as effects. Probably watch it a few more times with the hopes to dive deeper into the meaning, though I feel I got the premise on the first viewing.
Being prior military, I did like watching their tactics; yet, having never been a Special Forces Operator I'm sure there are aspects that have been Hollywood, but from my own personal experience the stuff I did notice did fall in line to what I have done, so good on them for getting those right.
Highly recommend the movie for Combat and Scifi experience. While taking things (maybe not intentionally) from some older movies, I really felt this was a whole new experience and loved every second of it.
