Our Score
This good-looking movie is set in a hi-tech future where 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 encounter a deadly group of robots that try to hunt them down. The stunning special effects are the highlight of this claustrophobic thriller, which taking obvious inspiration from sci-fi staples such as the Alien and Predator films. The soulless androids on the soldiers' tail make for effective villains, while the questions raised regarding humanity becoming too reliant on technology are salient and interesting. Clunky dialogue slows things down, and Thure Lindhardt never quite convinces as the group's grizzled leader, but Kirby has great presence as the mysterious antihero. Despite its low-budget, this sci-fi has a lot more going for it than many bloated Hollywood studio equivalents.

Summary

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.
