Good sci-fi conspiracy adventure
17 December 2019 | by vchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

Whatever the truth is, we are led on an exciting and dangerous adventure, with lots more people (or not people?) resembling "Star Wars" cast members, in which many people apparently die (though we don't get to know most of them) and buildings get blown up. You just don't know what will happen next or if things will get even worse. Maybe, just maybe it will end with the city being safe.

This isn't an extraordinary movie, but more like a two-part TV episode. Sometimes there is action, and sometimes there is quiet conversation where we get to know the people. We see flashbacks with inferior picture quality and sound. That's how we know they're flashbacks.

Armstrong is the standout character here. He is strong and intelligent and capable. Shawn Parsons does a good job.

Lauren is not one of these strong women seen in so many movies and TV series like this. But she does call on what strength she has. And, yes, that does mean what you think it means, but does she go through with it? She is good at her job and even doing things that are not her job. Just once she really gets excited because she accomplished something important. As for whether Vicky Jeudy, who I am not familiar with, does a good job, of course good acting can include lack of confidence, and I think that's what happens here.

Eddie is a regular guy who gets called on in this case to do more than a regular guy does. He has a mouth on him. The sound went out a lot, mostly when he was talking. Jason Antoon does a good job.

Kevin Pollak is the only actor here I ever heard of. And he does the wacko radio host brilliantly.

Is this wholesome family viewing? Not really, though it's not particularly bloody. I already mentioned language, but that problem is easily solved on broadcast TV.

I don't usually watch movies or TV series like this, but sometimes I get rewarded. Here, I'm not so sure.

Is it worth seeing? Certainly, if you like this sort of thing.
