Oh dear lord. Well, I wasn't sure what I was in for when I sat down to watch the 2018 movie "Sanctuary: Population One". But from the movie's cover, then I was assuming that it was a sci-fi movie. Sad to say that the movie's cover was actually overselling the movie by a mile, and the cover was actually the best thing about the entire movie, believe you me.
Instead I was treated to a low budget movie that made absolutely no sense whatsoever. The storyline and script was every bit as confusing and random as the movie was slow paced and the characters were mundane and had the appeal of wet cardboard.
I didn't even make it halfway through the abysmal movie experience that is known as "Sanctuary: Population One". I just gave up not even halfway through. I was good and ready to claw my eyes out from the absolute boredom that writer and director Lilly Heart Marriott instilled with this movie.
I wasn't familiar with a single actor or actress that I saw on the screen. And that is usually something I like, because it is a fresh face without association to previously portrayed characters in other movies. But for some reason, the abysmal script and dialogue, and the fact that the characters in "Sanctuary: Population One" were of no importance, then I didn't find much enjoyment in the acting performances.
At least the movie makers were trying. But the overshadowing lack of proper writing and storyline just outright killed the movie enjoyment. And I can honestly say that I am not ever going to return to try to watch the rest of "Sanctuary: Population One".
My rating of "Sanctuary: Population One" lands on a more than generous two out of ten stars. It was a bad movie, but there are worse movies out there.
