Diappointment and offensive

Nope, there should be a LGBTQ+ warning.

Judgement Day arrives . . . . . again
Verified purchase
Spoiler!
Judgement: sums up in a word the movie plot where a powerful cosmic consciousness arrives to pass judgement on the world. The movie spins around a handful of vignettes serving to demonstrate the unworthiness of humanity, with emphasis on social justice du jour. If you're tired of SJ being rammed down your throat, then you'll find this movie tiresome.

Door to nowhere.
Verified purchase
Nope. This is a set of barely related shorts each with different characters strung together, and ends with a literal zoom meeting.
The 3+ directors have different story telling styles and don't really mix; the first act is great at building suspense, but in the end this goes nowhere.

Clearly conceived and filmed during the 2020 pandemic with all the empty city shots and all.

Skip this unless you're bored and its free.

Couldn't even finish watching. It was one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. Plot was all over the place and the action / suspense was putting me to sleep. Definitely don't waste your time.

Don’t waste your money. Maybe watch it later for free just to see the Door special effects.
Verified purchase
This movie started out very interesting.
A good idea and nice special effects.
Then, just after you get invested in the characters, you are introduced to a completely new set of characters and never revisit the first.
Has 3 separate stories, all tied together by the timeline of the doors arriving.
It seemed like the movie ran out of money and the final scenes were cheaply shot with poor sound and really bad acting by one of the characters.
A real shame. It could have been great if they had pulled together all the lose ends better and gave us a few more answers.

To call it a bad movie would be too generous
Verified purchase
I have watched a lot of bad sci-fi but this was completely incoherent. A total waste of time and money

It's not a film. It's a set of unfulfilled teases.

Do not waste your time with this film.

Until the end credits ran, I thought maybe the various vignettes would knit together into a resolved story. Instead, what character development was accomplished got flushed away at intervals. The background and purpose of the doors is never provided fully, so what was gained by watching?

I watch the first few minutes of many films to see if they're worth enjoying together with my wife. Vignette number one in this grouping almost had me stop and save it for couples time on the sofa. Wow, I'm glad I didn't save this for movie night. There's a ghost of an idea which could be developed into a series, but I'd rather someone took a deep dive into some 50's pulp magazines for something with more promise.

Directors and writers... have a care, will ya? And if this falls short because the production budget limited your creative window, I'm sorry.

I agree with another reviewer out there. This is a missed opportunity. Is the name "Portals" available for a second try?

Wasted Potential
Verified purchase
It's an interesting take on a standard concept - the alien visitor/tech with an inscrutable purpose. Is it good? Is it a threat? Who knows?

The first part nearly lost me with its shoehorned non-binary teen lesbian scene that added nothing to the story and seemed designed to do nothing more than give the directors a chance to pat themselves on the back for how wonderfully woke they were. Here's a clue, guys: that moment when you encounter a terrifying alien presence that makes stuff disappear - is NOT the time to start exploring your romantic feelings. Not even for hyperhormonal adolescents.

The Knockers segment was tolerable, but the idea of door-induced psychosis could have been expressed more clearly.

One of my biggest problems with Act 3 is that I had to turn on the closed captions just to figure out what the door was saying. Note to directors: If your audience can't understand what a character is saying, then that character is saying nothing.

The final segment didn't really make any sense at all. Are we to understand that the weird stoned dude is making the lights flicker at the webcaster's house and then somehow manifesting a door there that torments him despite weird guy's assurances that everything's going to be fine? And the casual reference to our reality being a simulation isn't explored at all.

All in all, it was largely a waste of time.
