Goofs

The soldiers are supposed to be Army, but their camouflage uniforms are specific to the Marines, and they have Air Force vehicles. It could be intended as a visual cue that 'something' is not right with the military in the film. See more »

Stay Away From This Movie
17 February 2017 | by erhan-erdil-249-524500See all my reviews

For the first time i am writing a review for a movie. If you are not under 15 years old you should stay away from this movie because its just a really bad movie with some visual effects. The movie was looking good at first 10 minutes but after that everything in the movie started to seems stupid. Ending scene was the worst part of it. Scenario and most of the scenes in the movie is just disaster.
