Our Score
Set in a hi-tech future, a group of human soldiers and a half-android weapons designer (Vanessa Kirby) land on a remote island for a routine training mission, only to find a deadly group of robots trying to hunt them down. Taking obvious inspiration from sci-fi staples such as the Alien and Predator films, the stunning special effects are the highlight of this claustrophobic thriller. Keeping things simple from the get-go, the soulless androids on the soldiers' tail make for effective villains, and questions raised as to whether we have become too reliant on technology are salient and interesting. While the acting contingent is not quite as strong, Kirby has great presence as the mysterious antihero. Clunky dialogue slows things down, and Thure Lindhardt never quite convinces as the group's grizzled leader, but this low-budget robot war has a lot more going for it than many bloated Hollywood studio equivalents.

Summary

An elite military unit is flown to a top secret facility for a training exercise. The soldiers are intended to be put to the test in a battle simulation against robots, but when the machines start trying to really kill them, they discover a deadly threat to the human race. Sci-fi thriller, starring Vanessa Kirby and Thure Lindhardt.
