Storyline

Set in a near future, technology-reliant society is creating killing machines. Against this backdrop an elite Marine unit is helicoptered in to a remote, off-the-grid island training facility, to test the capabilities of the latest prototypes. They set up positions and make short work of the AI targets in the killing field. However, overnight their sentry goes missing, and when they find the corpse the next day they find themselves in the killing field and the tables have turned. The Marines fight to survive on an island that is overrun by an enemy intelligence far beyond their predecessors, which learns from their every move. Written by themightykazoo

Goofs

The sound of the rotor blades of the twin-helo transport ship (example at 7:20) is too slow given the rotor diameter and number of blades (including the counter-rotor). This sound is more suited for a 2-bladed big chopper like the Huey, not for a 6-blade counter-rotor with shorter blades. See more »

Not jumping out of my seat, but definitely not leaving it either.

If you're looking for an edgy sci-fi movie that is a compliment to it's genre, watch this movie. To be fair, it wasn't the thrill ride I had hoped it would be, but it definitely had tension. I was glued to the story throughout the movie.

For starters, I love the way that this movie is written. The writing style is amazing and, although some dialog felt forced or inaccurate, it painted the picture perfectly well. My biggest qualm with dialog was when they were talking radio codes... I noticed they were using 'copy' in place of "over.' Nit-picking, I know. I've noticed a lot of criticisms on this movie are based on the script and I simply just don't see it. I'm the type of person that would talk like that, I suppose.

The plot line itself doesn't start off as gripping. It's a little interesting, kind of fun to watch... but if you hadn't seen the trailer, you wouldn't know what to expect. I actually kind of like that about it. The beginning of the movie does drag, but it's setting the stage for bigger things. The plot thickens about a quarter of the way through the movie and then it's just a roller coaster. I thought the ending was awesome and satisfying.

Small-budget movie, but it looked polished. (I think I saw somewhere it was only a million on their budget?) The effects looked beautiful, not unbelievable, not tacky, not fake. Beautiful. If you're reading this, concept artists and effects gurus of this movie, bravo. It looks like a stunning big-budget movie. Those robots looked like real robots. The whole design of the robots was just well-done. The use of lighting in this film is great as well.

There were some cliche's, the plot left a few questions unanswered, and some of the dialog was stiff. Regardless, I thought this was a great movie.
