Boring scifi that lacks explanation!
25 April 2019 | by asocialisSee all my reviews

This is only for those who love science and fiction so much, and are bored in their real life. Meaning, watch it only if you really have nothing else to do. I can say for sure that everybody who rates this with 10 is not appropriate, and has never seen any better movie. This one is neither best neither worst, but is closest to worst. It is filled with boredom almost 100% of time, only those few moments make it less boring and gives it star or two. It's about real life, depressive people, suicide tendencies, abusive people, parents, growing up, dying of diseases, useless talking, hoping... It is too much ordinary, while excitement is only 1% of this movie. Also if you are sensitive to people's negativity, my advice is to not watch this. There are definitely abusive scenes that are unfortunately reality of our lives today. The fiction or fantasy part is shown without explanation, cause, reason. Also we can feel that this is USA and not Canadian movie based on places and talk.
