Good sci-fi with refreshing touch. Enjoy it, don't intellectualise it.
18 March 2018 | by eyefordetailSee all my reviews

It's hard to find novel sci-fi these days, but this movie explored a few new directions that I found entertaining. The story is good and the execution carried and developed the suspense well. Sometimes a movie needs to be rated as how engaging it is, how it kept your attention and how it made you feel, not how many "plot holes" there are, how "logical" it was and such intellectual drivel. Enjoying a movie is like drinking a beer - you like it or you don't, but please don't give me a diatribe on the size of the bubbles and whether the colour is golden amber or light gold. Who cares? I enjoyed the movie and the acting and was engaged to the end. Which means in entertainment value: Goal achieved.
