It sloughs off the generic label that adheres to many films of the genre, providing an experience that is by turns exciting, emotional, and funny.

Run Time: 1:33
U.S. Release Date: 2018-02-02
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Lin Oeding
Cast: Jason Momoa, Stephen Lang, Garret Dillahunt, Jill Wagner, Brendan Fletcher, Sasha Rossof

A standard-order action/thriller with adequate performances, occasional bursts of tension, awful dialogue, and a minimal narrative.

There are moments of pathos and deft comedy but, overall, "Before We Vanish" is overlong, poorly paced, and scattershot.

Pointless, loud, seemingly longer than a Peter Jackson film, and missing a credible story, this is for "Maze Runner" completists only.
