Current film student. I will watch anything...I may be more generic than most on this app
The twist was easily figured out. The kids do stupid things to get in situations where they get killed. Also, Makani is said to be from Hawaii and went to Kamehameha high school. But then I’m the flashback all of her teammates are white. You HAVE to be some part Hawaiian to attend that school. So major loss of points because of that terrible accuracy. Skip it
I can understand the disappointment that this film wasn’t made 5 or 6 years prior. It would’ve fit in nicely. (That’s what she said)
Looking at it without that disappointment though, I enjoyed it quite a bit. I will say the some of the action was edited in a way like the first Bourne film. Too many cuts in between. I also thought some of the special FX were poor. I thought they did a better job towards the end…
The 3 star rating is purely for Cage. He does amazing work in this film. I enjoyed the tone of the film. But the set up that was built is ultimately let down by the anti climatic conclusion.
The pacing is slow and I didn’t buy Alex Wolff as this young hot shot guy trying to one up his dad. I think high expectations ruined it a bit for me.
I’m glad I watched it, but I probably won’t watch it again.
