Atrocious score, terrible screenplay, bad editing, dragged out scenes for the ridiculous 120 min length
21 July 2018 | by TheTopDawgSee all my reviews

Atrocious score - seriously unbearable and you could not help but notice it. Had that been better, the film would have shown much better.

Terrible screenplay - did anyone re-read this? The concept was interesting but there was just too much unnecessary fluff, plot issues, and pointless scenes.

Bad editing - was it even edited? Had it been/done correctly, they could have cut the many dragged out scenes for the ridiculous 120 min length and made this a bearable 80-90 min film.

The only redeeming qualities were the fairly decent SFX for a 4M low budget film, the cinematography was good, and the acting not bad for C-B-list actors, although they could have been directed better and would have performed better on a better screenplay. Some of the casting was just wrong - e.g. the 5' skinny blonde female army general(?) that couldn't act smh?

I really wanted to like this film but I just couldn't bear the above negative points. I actually had to fast forward past the useless scenes.

What's even worse is the once again 10/10 fake reviews these producers feel can sway the viewers. It's clear they are all fake when you click on the user and see it's their only review. Sad film making. A generous 3/10 from me. Don't waste your time with this one. Can't believe they are in production for a part 2.
