Terminus ★★★

Fire in the Sky meets Field of Dreams meets Primer. A low budget sci-fi film with no-names and gets extremely cliched and yet still held it together.

Mysterious, oyster-like life forms crash into earth. Federal Agents are more than interested but because it contains an apparent healing power. When local nobodies find a pod and realize its potential they also run into problems.

Don't expect perfection here but do expect an earnest attempt on probably a shoe-string budget to tell a story you've heard before but from a slightly different angle. It's a little slow building but I appreciated the attention to depth given to our characters. It's also not always well acted and the writing is a bit sloppy in spots.

But this is a film with its heart in the right place.
