Rather good fun, with a surprising number of parallels to be drawn with Annihilation of all things.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
— What an inconsequential mess. A dense quiche of a film.
— It could all be resolved if the characters just had a conversation, or maybe didn't make huge decisions based on a poorly printed fax.
— You know those overstuffed and beige ensemble films like New Year's Eve and Valentines Day? It's basically one of those.
— Remember how much fun the first Captain America film was? Yeah, we're a long way from there now. Dour is…
I desperately wanted to like this, but … ack. Fantastic production design, but the world building was a little bit all over the place. Wildly inconsistent futurism, veering from cold war starkness to overfamiliar neon Blade Runneriness.
Still, great to see Paul Rudd in a more serious role. Really creepy. Someone push him in front of Scorsese or PTA at once.
