For starters, this is a low budget C-grade (never heard of anyone involved in this film and even most actors don't even have an IMDb profile or photo) UK indie film, so any expectations of seeing a Hollywood quality production are absurd, and so are the undeserving 1's. Reviewers need to cut some slack for new film-makers, and take into consideration their experience and production value.
The directing from camera-work point of view was not bad for amateur (only 2nd full length film and 1 previous short) writer and director Neil Rowe, but he failed in directing his cast, especially Katherine Drake who was either adequate, or falling asleep. The writing was decent for an amateur, and the 84 min runtime would normally be acceptable for this type of film, but I felt with the slow pacing and the many long dragged out scenes, this film should've had either more content, or reduced to a short or 1 hour TV movie. There were also a few plot and technical issues. The dialogue could've also been much better as some of it was just cheesy. The sound was also off with muffled gunfire in some action scenes. On a positive note, what really stood out for me was the score, which was very eerie and fitting - a rare quality in most b-grade films, the visual effects, cinematography and those creepy af robots and aliens - of which were the main reason I kept watching. Even the gore was on point.
This film is not a 10 like the fake reviews, but certainly not worth the 1's. It's an honest and fair 6/10 from me. Click on my username to see any of my 1000+ ratings and 800+ reviews.
