This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I truly want to love this movie.
Soft sci-fi, government conspiracy, heartwarming family reunion, mind-control/power fantasy... It's got it all.
But this thing is misery. It's hard to pick something to pick on because much of it is terrible, but I think the standout is the writing. Just awful across the board. More hole than plot. Awful cheese well beyond the pale. Terrible pacing.
It's frankly incredible how GOOD Ben Affleck, Alice Braga, and William Fichtner seem when you consider the plot and lines they're given.
I wish this was 10x the movie, because I want sequels, but... Like... If they were good.
