Although obvious avoidable flaws, still very ambitions, well written with excellent visuals

Hasraf Dulull is know in Hollywood for his extended resume in visual effects including some blockbusters such as Hellyboy and The Dark Knight. He has created a handful of successful short films and this is his first full-length film as writer, director, producer, editing and visual effects supervisor. Ambitious? Yes. Successful? In some areas.

The visuals - as expected from his resume, are excellent, especially for a low budget, B-grade Indie film. The tech portrayed was done very well, especially the Human 2.0 robots. The cinematography was on point. The writing - particularly the story/premise, was excellent. His directing was actually quite good but he failed in the camera department. Way too many out-of-focus scenes (seriously annoying), and shaky-cameras with unnecessary zoom-ins/outs. These could have easily been avoided as the director - and editor of this film. The pace was very slow and the film should have been edited to about 1:10-1:20 max instead of the 1:43 length. The low-budget actors were actually not bad and most were convincing in their roles.

Although I enjoyed the docu-style approach, I also felt the film had somewhat of an identity crisis. The focus was convoluted between the aliens and robots, Sci-fi and science, conflict and philosophy.

But by the rolling credits, I was actually very satisfied. For my over 300+ reviews, I always rate a film based on its merits. This was a low budget, B-grade amateur indie film, and rating it as such, this deserves an 8.5 from me, rounded up to a 9 to try to even out all those 1's from people expecting some huge Hollywood production with A-list actors and big financial backing, and comparing & rating it to those. Clearly not fair.

If you enjoy a good amateur indie sci-fi, this is a must see.
