Trivia

Welsh actor Iwan Rheon [E-wan Rheen)] , best known for playing Ramsay Bolton in GoT and Maximus in the HIGHLY underrated TV show Marvel's Inhumans, carries the film himself (especially in the slow moving first act) , and it's as much of a character study as a tense sci-fi film. Worth watching if you are into a slow-burn drama with poor digital effects. See more »

Goofs

At the start of the movie, when they're counting down days by showing S.U.M.1 smoking his rationed, numbered, cigarettes, he smokes first #100, then #98, than #99. See more »

B Action Movie with a good end (if you're a cynic)
26 October 2017 | by wisdom_moonSee all my reviews

For a plot summary please look at the start of the page.

Film feel: The exposition and and main part of the movie is eerily similar to the likes of Moon and Oblivion. But in contrast, this film drags on much more because there is no funny dialog or a subplot. The dominant grey-blue colour palette doesn't help either. The film wants to showcase the monotonous and boring routine of the main character but takes it too far and bores the viewer.

The film tries to have a twist ending but is to simple to really pull it off. The story is so bland that one can count the possible endings on two fingers.

If you're a cynic (like me) then you will like the ending. More would be spoiler.

Exposition: 1/10 (if you have seen Oblivion and/or Moon you can skip it) Main Part: 1/10 (too bland and simple) Ending: 6/10 (good ending for cynics; I couldn't stop grinning)

TLDR: if this was a 20 min short film it might have been good. Like this it drags on for 90% of the run time.
