Flawed in many ways, but I still enjoyed it.
24 December 2018 | by TheTopDawgSee all my reviews

The major issue with the film was the writing - the screenplay written by novice Chad St. John (this being his 2nd only screenplay), and the story by a novice Stephen Hamel (this being only his 3rd full length film).

The camera directing was fairly decent from Jeffrey Nachmanoff (this being only his 4th full length feature film, his experience mainly in TV series), but I feel he failed in directing his talent properly, especially Alice Eve, who was unconvincing and seemed like this was her first acting role.

The S/VFX weren't the greatest, but for a B-grade film low budget film, they were quite adequate - not sure what some of the haters are whining about.

It seems that the production itself was a little cheap (thus B-grade), perhaps meant to be a low budget (indie?) film. After all, it was purchased by Entertainment Studios for only 4m.

As a huge fan of Keanu Reeves, I feel he should have just stayed on as 1 of the *gulp* 27 producers, and cast someone more fitting as a scientist. I think many decisions couldn't have been easily agreed upon with that many producers.

The casting was terrible overall. Security guys with pony tails and sunglasses? The acting again wasn't as good as I expected, but I think that was the directors fault as I mentioned above. The only convincing lead was Thomas Middleditch.

As a low budget B-grade film, and although there is a lot of haters out there, it was still decent enough and it kept me pinned to the screen. Had the writing been tighter, directing better, and cast a little differently, then this would have been a hit.

Nevertheless, it was still entertaining and I enjoyed it. Not worth the hater's low scores, nor the fake 10's, but it's an honest 8/10 from me - taking into consideration it was a low budget B-grade film.
