Revolt is one of those middle budget sci-fi efforts you'll see on Netflix much alike the superior Kill Switch (2017) and alike that this also stars the excellent French actress Bérénice Marlohe.
The film is British made which surprised me. Honestly without football hooligans or quintessential Englishmen I can rarely identify them as such, thankfully that makes up 90%+ of English films.
It tells the story of a world overrun by an alien force and one soldier trying to survive through it. Suffering from amnesia and with a weird tattoo on his arm he goes on a dangerous quest for answers.
While the comparable Kill Switch was a smart movie this relies on the tried and tested formula of fighting aliens, explosions, spacecraft and all the usual tropes.
Revolt is a run of the mill film, one of those that is harmless enough to spend 90 minutes on but by the next day you'll have likely forgotten it.
