Storyline

No meteorites hit Earth, no terrorists put the world in danger, no atomic war was started, but something did go wrong. Contact between most towns on Earth has been severed. A small ring-like area in Eastern Europe still has electricity, and maybe even life is being reported from the Space. What military forces find outside the Ring is shocking. There are dead corpses everywhere: in stores, in cars, on roads, in hospitals and railway stations. Who or what is destroying all life on Earth? How long will the last outpost of mankind survive?

24 May 2020 | by bigfatbikerideSee all my reviews

I wasn't expecting too much from this movie, however. The good points: Excellent action, CGI and fightscenes Not so good: Acting (actors disinterested and emotionless) plot and alien makeup, storyline.

The movie would have been excellent if only the actors looked scared, pissed and showed emotions when speaking. I watch the English dubbed version and the voiced translations showed more emotions than the actors gave away.

Lasted 30 minutes longer than it should have, ended without answering any questions abruptly. Maybe the script writers didn't have an end themselves.

Lockdown would not be a reason to watch this unless you feel the need to watch every sci-fi movie ever made.
