It's a solid movie and even if the kids are a bit annoying, it doesn't even remotely justify the many one star ratings. The twists were completely unexpected and the story leading up to them was good as well. The beautiful futuristic world was intriguing from the beginning and kept me wanting to know more.
So to sum up, since it's most likely part of your netflix subscription, it's a solid ~2h of entertainment for a lazy afternoon. If you had to go out and spend a full movie ticket's worth of money it may be a different story, so keep some perspective. The cover on Netflix looked promising and it gave a 99% ratio so I decided to have a look. I'm always down for a quick film and with 1h35m on the clock this was indeed a watchable movie.
So why a 4 out of 10?
The entire movie didn't make sense at all. And here is where the spoilers come in:
A guy has nightmares of an attack. A city is being attacked. We see the invaders up close and in a mysterious way (cant see through their helmets). One of the invaders gets attacked by nightmare guy, removes helmet, nightmare guy is being helped, escapes the warzone and the movie ends.
What would have given this movie a higher rating:
More time with the invader (massive spoiler coming up): why did he decide to help nightmare guy? Needed more info on this one. What happens with him after peter gets away?
The movie misses a lot of information and is basically like the halo game: enter a room, shoot everything, escape, done.
Had to give it a thumbs down. Costume design was great though, cgi brought back memories of the 90's Here, he
