A sci-fi movie with substance
8 December 2019 | by shortkittenSee all my reviews

This movie is a must-see not only for sci-fi fans, not only for Stephen Amell fans, but for anyone who wants to see a movie with a heart-grabbing story about real-world issues, albeit with a sci-fi twist. (And let's not underrate Robbie Amell's fantastic performance and the emotions that you couldn't help, but be felt with him.) This movie wastes no time with fillers or stuff just to make it R-rated. Every moment has a purpose. Every scene drives the story. Every penny shelled out on this movie was well-spent. Being crowdfunded, they made sure the backers would be proud. This does not feel like a small, independent movie. Code 8 could easily become a franchise. It is thought-provoking, dealing with everyday, real-world issues, and the action and special effects are superb. The ending is satisfying, yet leaves you wanting more, and I truly hope they are able to do a sequel.
