When his little sister is abducted from a homecoming after-party in rural East Texas, Ryan is in a race against the clock to save her before she disappears into the underworld of sex trafficking forever.
2038: George Almore is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest. Especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at all costs: being reunited with his dead wife.
Well, granted I knew that this was not going to be movie experience of grand nor epic proportions. But still, the movie did have an interesting enough synopsis that it could prove to be entertaining.
But it really wasn't...
First of all, the title of the movie made absolutely no sense in comparison to the storyline and what actually transpired on the screen. As such, I felt like I was tricked by an interesting cover/poster and ended up watching something else entirely.
And truth be told, the storyline was generic and predictable. In fact, so much to the point where it was just becoming less than interesting to actually keep up with the things that transpired.
The acting in the movie was adequate, taking into consideration the type of movie that it is, its premise and its budget. The actors and actresses were doing okay enough with whatever little material they had readily available from the script and storyline.
Now, then comes the alien creature. Wow. Just wow! And that is not meant as a good and astounding wow. No, this was a creature (or alien) design that was so stereotypical and generic that it was actually cringeworthy to watch. Think a mixture of Jason Voorhees and the Predator, except the alien creature in "Battlefield 2025" lacked everything crucial from both these characters to make it an interesting or noteworthy creature on the screen. It just felt like something taken out of a poor man's Sci-Fi home video.
I am rating "Battlefield 2025" a generous three out of ten stars. Why? Well, despite the movie's shortcomings, it should be said that the production value was quite good, and it showed that the film makers actually had their hearts in the right place for this project.
