This is very reminiscent of Heroes and the first episode hasn't shown something we haven't seen before.
There are some token characters and basically if you've seen any of the trailers out there you've seen the first episode. The little sentinels look a little bit too much like the robots from the Matrix.
Acting is good, CGI is bearable but could do better.
Not sure where the plot is going.. is it just mutants vs the Sentinel program? Anyhow it's not a bad start but it's not great either. At this stage it's decent but it could go either way.
