Science is no longer cool.

I didn't really like this. The script is bad and kind of boring, consistently making big logic jumps without proper development and generally existing in the uncanny valley of human dialogue. The acting by Mark Wahlberg is uncomfortably bad at times but I think I blame the direction and editing for at least some of that. The acting in general is poor for a production of this level. Oh and fuck that ending.

It's definitely watchable and has an interesting concept, but I can't say I recommend.
