ReelViews for 'Science Fiction/Thriller' movies
Take away the anti-climactic final act and this is an effective white-knuckle psychological thriller.
A standard-order noir murder mystery with a confused last act, "Anon" is more notable for how it sees the future than what it sees going on there.
"Anti Matter" is the existential successor to 2015’s "Ex Machina" - low-budget sci-fi in which ideas trump effects.
U.S. Release Date: 2019-03-15
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Torture, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Science Fiction/Thriller
Director: Rupert Wyatt
A weird cross between "District 9" and "The Battle of Algiers" that doesn’t do either of those apparent inspirations justice.
As a race-against-time, Jason Bourne-inspired adrenaline cocktail, "Criminal" offers a couple of hours of popcorn-munching entertainment.
Writer/director Jacob Estes has come to the project with a clever concept but his execution is weak, contradictory, and confusing.
With its flashy action sequences and Tarantino-wannabe vibe, the movie tries hard to be hip and edgy but ends up simply being uneven.
