What is going on with the ratings on here? 25%? Did a hatemob rate this film? It's an effective homage to 80s sci-fi flicks. Nothing more. Nothing less. But certainly not 25% "worst movie ever" material. 7.2 on imdb, 78 on metacritic. Let's just say professional critics are usually a bit more trustworthy than trakt users...

There are certain movies that I love and completely understand why others wouldn't like them. Then there are movies where I simply can't understand how someone could sit through it and not be affected by it in any way. This is one of those movies

This movie starts in media res and has a slow build up. The acting is great, the cinematography is great and the story makes you think. Sure the pacing is slow but if you like old sci-fi movies you won't be disappointed.

This really is one of the most stupid films I have seen in a while. If you're not snooze busting after an hour you will at the least be questioning all the mistakes and attention to detail that takes place this rather dull and not very interesting movie.

> A secret road adventure during the dark hours!

So the Jeff Nichols and Micahel Shannon saga continues. This is theirs 4th film together in the last nine years and all of them were well accepted. Now they are into sci-fi for this, which is kind of a road movie that resembles hundreds of other fi More

It's like _Donnie Darko_ and _Looper_ had a baby. A less talented baby, but still, pretty impressive.

_Final rating:★★★½ - I strongly recommend you make the time._
