Can’t make up its mind whether it wants to be a popcorn thriller or something with an existential bent, and isn't fully satisfying as either.

An overlong, loud spectacle that owes as much to Transformers as kaiju.
Little more than a B-movie with strong production values and an eclectic cast, this is far from Jordan at his best.
Overlong, talky, filled with meta references, and with a strangely low-energy tone, the movie never fully gels.
