Banal......
28 February 2017 | by s3276169See all my reviews

Man Down is a quite frankly, banal....

There's nothing original on offer here.It incessantly flip flops between past and present events, with a post apocalyptic world on the one hand and a past life, that looks like a recruitment video for the US military.

Its corny, schmaltzy stuff, with an emotional superficiality that's been done to death. I lost interest after a mind numbing half hours worth of "Yes sir, no sir(s)" and "where's my son(s)".

The actors do an OK job but as is often the case their efforts are sabotaged by unoriginal, predictable scripting and dreary, leaden narrative.

Five out of ten and only because the actors did a reasonable job in an unreasonably boring flick.
