While studying the effects of global warming on a pod of whales, grad students on a crabbing vessel and its crew uncover frozen Soviet space shuttle and unintentionally release a monstrous organism from it.
A group of online gamers are invited to try a state-of-the-art virtual reality video game but things take a turn for the sinister when these masters of the shoot 'em up discover they will literally be fighting for their lives.
And suddenly, overnight, the world came to a halt. Two men, two survivors, one kid, and hatred that separates them. A place forgotten by everyone, including the creatures that inhabit the Earth... until now.
Miguel Ángel Vivas
Because the film was shot in summer and the location had no air conditioning, temperatures in the space suits would sometimes get above 110. See more »
When Chief mentions the singularity near the O.I. Infini to explain the time dilation, he says that 1 minute and 14 seconds of Earth time would be 24 hours of O.I. Infini time, which actually means a time dilation on Earth. According to Einstein's theory of relativity, time is dilated near a singularity and not on Earth, which is the opposite of what Chief says. Einstein's theory means that 24 hours of Earth time would actually be 1 minute and 14 seconds of O.I. Infini time. See more »
As always I started weighing my choices of movies for the evening by consulting several movie-review sites, amongst which also IMDb. When I saw the 5.4 rating I thought it might be some kind of cheap-shot bad attempt at movie-making, however after going through some of the reviews here (most of which were actually encouraging) I decided to give it a try anyway. What I got was almost 2 hours of so much tension that afterward I realized I had literally not moved my face away from the screen during the whole movie. Personally I like this kind of sci- fi. The dark, claustrophobic, tense scenario provides for a genuine thrill. Character development is not very deep (it's not exactly that kind of movie), but is certainly not lacking. The production value is up to standards as well, good CGI but definitely not overdone (did not need to be overdone as no compensation for a lack of plot is needed). The movie reminds me a bit of Pandorum (2009) and Sunshine (2007). My only comments on the script/plot is that they could have cut several scenes short by a few sentences, which would not have resulted in any loss of quality and would have maybe improved the progression slightly. But I dare to say that Infini is better than 90% of the sci-fi stuff produced in the last 10 years. I absolutely loved this movie and would recommend it to any true sci-fi fan.
