Chased by a vengeful criminal, the feds and a gang of otherworldly soldiers, a recently released ex-con, and his adopted teenage brother are forced to go on the run with a weapon of mysterious origin as their only protection.
Co-directors Jonathan Baker and Josh Baker's Sci-Fi action thriller features James Franco, Zoe Kravitz, and Dennis Quaid. A young boy (Myles Truitt) finds a powerful otherworldly weapon, which he uses to save his older adoptive brother (Jack Reynor) from a crew of thugs. Before long, the two of them are also pursued by federal agents and mysterious mercenaries aiming to reclaim their asset.
Jack Reynor was chosen to play the brother because the filmmakers felt his mannerisms and voice reminded them of Bill Paxton, an actor the directors had wanted to work with but never had the chance to due to his unfortunate death in 2016. See more »
There is no "Sulaco County" in the State of Nevada. See more »
SPOILER: Michael B. Jordan's executive producer credit doesn't appear until the end of the film, presumably to keep the surprise of his cameo in the movie's climax. See more »
I really liked this film, it had a great theme of family and how the characters deal with loss and conflict. It has an amazing ending and I hope that there will be more films as it has a lot of possibilities. James Franco is great at playing sleazy bad guys and he really delivers in this (with the exception of the "walkman story"..that was a bit uneccessary and a bit cringy). I loved the special effects, they were subtle in places and I was glad it wasn't a film bloated with cgi and was relevant to the story. The lead actor was brilliant and a promising young actor and who doesn't love a bit of Zoe kravitz in sparkly underwear? She plays a really good part in this but sometimes I tire of the " tart with a heart role", women are capable of so much more, but she played it well.
