Near the end, the EMP (eletro-magentic pulse) device operates nothing like a real one would. The effect would be largely or entirely invisible, would not have a fixed radius but would dissipate slowly over distance, and it would cause all electrical systems with long enough lines to be overloaded and fail; even if the power stations were still supplying power in such an apocalypse, immediately after the EMP fires, none of the nearby lights-some of which are quite close-should be on. This is not required for the movie to work, either; the drones emit their own light, there is moonlight, etc. that would have allowed the action to be filmed still. See more »

Too stupid to be taken seriously, too dull to be fun
20 December 2017 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

A U.S solider finds himself in Africa when aliens attack but he has lost his memory.

The affects and production levels are quite good here. The aliens make sense and there is a fair amount of drama and action.

However, it is very boring. Our hero blunders around Kenya from one bunch of douche bags to another. These encounters tend to end in a rather limp gun fight.

This film subscribes to the Hollywood notion that there are three groups of people who just don't get the concept of guns: 1940's Germans, Asians and Non-American black people. It never occurs to these sub groups of humanity that with a gun you don't have to run wildly into your enemies fire like some kind of berserker. This makes the action scenes look very amateur and unbelievable as everyone charges into a nice empty spot of screen where the CG man can scrub them out.

This could have been a bit of fun but then on top of this there are several vomit inducing speeches about the human spirit and the power of sacrifice.

Also I don't think the that the person who commissioned this movie actually understands what the word "revolt" means, I think they got it confused with "repel" or "resist" perhaps.

Not the worst Sci-Fi ever, it is at least watchable - but I wouldn't.
