As a young scientist searches for a way to save a dying Earth, she finds a connection with a man who's racing to catch the last shuttle off the planet.

Being a fan of science fiction, going into this movie I had high hopes. But by the IMDB rating of 4.7, this must tell you that fans were not impressed with the story. Anthony Mackie did a decent job with the material, however his co-star pretentious, lack of emotion and self-depressive demeanor left us upset. Throughout this movie the audience will feel like something unusual is about to happen but nothing did.  The idea of IO the Jupiter moon where humans relocated was all that got.  No visual, no space sequence, just the idea. In the end we learn that her decision to remain on earth allowed her to evolve to the environment and thus survive. Anthony Mackie’s character was tricked to make the trek to see a professor after hearing his message on the airwaves, had to learn on arrival that he’s been dead for over a year and what he was hearing was a pre-recorded message.  Likewise, we where tricked to believe this was a science fiction movie but instead we got a hidden horrific romantic drama trapped in indecisiveness.  There was nothing science fiction about this movie.

A female bodyguard and the heiress she is hired to protect go on the run from assassins.

Being a fan of Noomi Rapace since the original Swedish version of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo where she played the emotionally damaged heroine Lisbeth Salander and her other movies Prometheus and What Happen To Monday I was expecting something outstanding.  What we were treated to was a cat and dog pony show that in the end was a utter disappointment.

Noomi was superb in her role, however this film’s plot and climax was unassuming, unexciting and just plain terrible.   Fans were not kind to this film and it is obvious, hence the 5.6 rating on IMDB.  What was disappointing was the climatic reveal that was neither surprising nor a revelation because when the credit started to role, we were still wondering what happen and who did it.  There were too many unexplained and incomplete plotlines.  If you like Noomi, try to watch it, but if not avoid it completely, it is not worth your time.

After the deaths of three children suspected to be killed by wolves, writer Russell Core is hired by the parents of a missing six-year-old boy to track down and locate their son in the Alaskan wilderness.

And the most disappointing of them all is this pretention of a thriller.  The synopsis is misleading at best.  The audience will think movie is about human versus wolves, but it is more of a Clyde hunting Bonnie to take revenge for killing their son.  Overall, it was a mass murder drama where the killers are glorified with no explanation as to why they feel like killing everything in sight make sense.

You would think a movie with Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) and Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) would be at least half way decent, it was absolutely not.  The disappointment started once you realize the mother lied about wolves killing her son.  In the middle, we discovered she was the one who did it and she was responsible for killing other children and blaming wolves.  The husband came home and went on a killing spree.  He just lost his son and his wife was suspected of doing it, why did he feel killing other people was justified?  Was it because as a child he was told he had “darkness” in him?  Come on.

This film was uninspiring, unnecessarily violent, lack plot completion and contains inconsistent storylines.  If anything, this should have been a limited series with more time to develop the villainous characters background and explored writers connection to wolve research that made him an expert in the field.  Instead this seemed rushed and poorly edited which killed the “brilliance” of the horrible plot.
