User Reviews

good Idea with a bad implementation
3 August 2016 | by viva-amegoSee all my reviews

Summary: Could have been a good movie but it had a very limited budget for an action movie making it very lame and lacking.

This a first person shooter game that mixed with reality. Its not a novel idea but you can get a good movie out of it. The movie had a really good interaction between the gamer and the characters.

FPS means a lot of gun shooting and action scenes but nothing of that happened. The action most of time without gun shooting and focus on hand to hand combat. The action scenes in general is below average just compare it with "Hardcore Henry" you will find a great difference in quality.Instead of the action scenes the movie is full of long conversations which in most of the time useless. This could have been used to make the movie a little bit realistic but it was a wasted opportunity. Most of the time a lot of unrealistic events happens with a lot plot holes.

So in the end I can say that it was a good story and the actors made some good job but the script and the film direction was a great mess. This may be due to limited production budget but in the end it really affected the quality of the movie.
