Spectral is just a decent movie which I wouldn't recommend to everybody. By that I mean, if you are someone who watches 3-4 movies/month, skip Spectral and watch something else, a more 'worth- your-time' movie. On the other hand, if you watch a lot of movies (more than 3-4/week) and you are into sci-fi and a gamer(optional), then watch it.
