This was actually....good? And creative? And entertaining? Direct to video films can usually go one of two ways: downright unwatchable or surprisingly entertaining. I'm happy to report this was the latter. I saw this was "trending" on Netflix and it featured Robbie and Stephen Amell, who I also like.
Now, it's not perfect. Some of the acting, particularly from the side characters, is pretty bad. The movie also tries to have emotional beats that don't land for me at all. But when the Amell's are on screen, I am enjoying this popcorn flick for what it is.
The basic premise is that there are folks with superpowers, and the government discriminates them. Sounds a lot like X-Men, eh? The special effects are nothing to write home about, but for a film with this budget I think they looked fine (I've seen so much worse....). The robot cops were pretty cool too.
