1.0 out of 5 starsUnwatchable

The badness just hurts. Worst Grillo movie ever, not to mention Willis. There is just nothing redeeming about this movie. I knew I had made a mistake renting it within minutes. Willis spends the whole movie looking like some old lady who just lost a bet, barely saying anything. I especially love how 500 years in the future people are still driving pick up trucks from 2018. All the actors are bad, saying bad dialogue, in bad action sequences. Its not even bad in a good funny way, its just bad. Holy cow is it bad. Really bad. Dont rent this bad, bad movie.

2.0 out of 5 starsGreat Potential but Total Let Down
Verified purchase
This movie was too short and really felt like a B movie based on The Expanse. There was no character build up, acting was sub par, and the plot had so much potential but really fell flat. Any sci fi lover will hate this b/c of the potential to be so cool and being let down. For example, sending a general into battle with 5 or 6 companions makes no sense to me. If he honestly thought our entire specifies was at risk he would send a lot more than himself with 6 people, and they would likely be some form of special forces. Another amusing fact, acquiring a Q bomb was probably easier than getting a side arm. If these are the future nuclear weapons, I would think there would be a little more security than what this movie had in it (i dont even think there was a locked door and the base had like 20 people in it). The movie also never really explains the alien species or shows them outside of their human hosts (B movie could at least slap a mask on dog or something). Overall i like the ethics questions surrounding first contact going badly, i just wish this movie was made by someone with a thought process more advanced than what seems like a freshman in high school.

2.0 out of 5 starsIf you have bad eye sight, like bad dialog, and don't like to think, this one is for you.

I gave it 2 two stars for Bruce Willis. Not that he was good in it but because I like him in general. It feels like Bruce knew it was not going to be stellar and gave the appropriate amount of energy toward his role. It feels campy with actors using devices they don't have on them and pulling guns out of nonexistent holsters on their backside. The dialog is poor and feels awkward at times. The talky talky get old fast and most of the special effects feels 2nd rate.

Brandon Thomas Lee does try to make his character likable but with the limited one sentence dialog makes it to big of a challenge.

I feel like it was made for the SciFi channel. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars...this is an incomplete film???
Verified purchase
....first off, there are a lot of people blaming the actors for this movie being lame. Not fair at all. Actually the acting was, although a little stiff at times, the best thing about this movie. The movie was probably edited into extinction because of time restrictions...I suppose. They could have just foreshortened the bang bang parts and wiz-bang effects, which were mostly CGI animated and made this a better movie. They didn't trust the actors I guess..... I mainly watched this movie because of BW... unfortunately he appears seldom, and seems disinterested when he does. Anyway, the only way I can recommend this film is if they knock the price down, or re-edit it.

1.0 out of 5 starsThis is shit.
Verified purchase
This was trash. Terrible acting. I’ve watched bad movies and enjoyed them, but this... I should have been paid to watch it. Then given my time back. Such an amazing concept. But instead of making a memorable movie, I was given a memorable pile of shit. I will always remember this as THE worst movie I have ever watched. And I know people exaggerate this type of thing, but I swear on my entire ancestry, this is the worst thing I have ever seen. I was so extremely excited about it, but I am utterly disappointed. So many plot holes. Terrible progression in the film. Several scenes are useless to the story and the ones that could have made a difference, fall... plummet way short of being able to explain or even hint on what is happening or how they should even be possible. I love Bruce Willis and was excited for this film. I am, however, regretful that I watched it. Please do not waste your time on this. The concept is great, but I feel as if the whole thing was made on one take. The armor they wear is half of the time falling off or hanging off to the side as it’s not even secured to them.. I could go on for pages of complaints. I’m just sad it was not what I was expecting... by a long shot. Good luck if you watch it.

1.0 out of 5 starsA very bad B movie
Verified purchase
The preview made it look better than it was. I gave up on it approx. half way through. Even with Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo still not good. Certainly not worth 7 bucks. Maybe 3 if you are really really bored. Otherwise save your money for another movie.

1.0 out of 5 starsEdited to an unwatchable plotless mess
Verified purchase
Acting is ok. CGI is ok. Plot is THERE but makes no sense because of bad editing. The story jumps from an interstellar encounter to the same ship arriving back on earth in 24 minutes (there is a “time since first contact counter”). Then a plan comes together and a team is assembled and a plot device is thrown in (none of which make sense but again, bad sci-fi) by minute 74 after first contact. Then jumps to an interstellar planet under alien siege for hours and hours with a whole “battalion of 300 people” wiped out.

It just feels like the editors cut this from something meh into drivel and people who have no idea about what is realistic or even logical shit this out while working from home and not caring. Not blaming actors or writers because no one could have written or acted in something this bad and not made changes. Tons of things must have been cut that would have made this movie at least make some kind of sense.

2.0 out of 5 starsEntertaining, sci-fi action comedy.
Verified purchase
I enjoyed this film. The special FX were good. There are several fight scenes and several shootouts with the aliens. The main problem was that there was no chemistry between Willis and his ex-girlfriend. The story was interesting. First contact was made with hostile aliens and a decision was made to destroy a space portal so that more aliens could not pass though it and take over the human race. The aliens make it clear that they don't want to destroy us, they simply want to enslave us. They mentally connect with Willis in a cave and try to explain their mission while also studying Willis mind. Once this information is received Willis and his team decide to destroy the portal before more aliens can pass through it and enslave mankind. The true form of the aliens is never revealed. There is a lot of shooting. There are about three major shootouts. Willis engages in hand to hand combat, shoots a lot of aliens and cracks a few jokes. I enjoyed the sci-fi setting. The film is beautifully shot. More focus should've gone into the relationships between the soldiers. Grillo isn't in this as much as Willis. In one scene Willis gives a dying soldier a drug so that he could die quickly and peacefully. That was odd and seemed heartless. Several main characters die but no time is spent mourning them. This seemed odd. Perhaps they didn't have time to mourn due to the urgency of their situation. At the end we are meant to care for Willis ex-girlfriend yet her character wasn't very likeable so I didn't really care about her. Her role should've been written better with perhaps a better looking actress playing the part. If his ex was hotter it would've made him look cooler. Additionally, we would've felt more emotionally invested in their relationship. However, she did save his life at the end. There is another new couple at the end who we care about. I liked that Willis was in most of the movie and he was a tough character always ready to fight and also crack a few jokes. Willis is clearly trying to create a funny, tough character here and I believe he succeeds. This film really looks good. It just needed a more coherent script. I enjoyed watching Willis and his team kick some alien butt. It felt as if some scenes were cut short. They had to film this movie quickly due to COVID. They filmed this movie in a total of
9 days. I believe they did a great job considering the time constraints. Maybe a special edition will be released one day. I recommend this film for sci-fi fans and Bruce Willis fans.
