What is it?

The 2016 British science fiction action horror film Kill Command (Identify) which was directed by the director Steven Gomez and starred the actress Vanessa Kirby (as the character Katherine Mills) and the actor Thure Lindhardt (Thure Frank Lindhardt) (as the character Captain Damien Bukes):

What is it about?

It is about a female cyborg named Katherine Mills who works for a corporation called the Harbinger Corporation and she is assigned with a group of marines led by Captain Damien Bukes who is sent on a training mission at a training facility, and during their training they discover that something is wrong with the artificially intelligent warfare systems called S.A.R (Study Analyze Reprogram) causing the machines to attack them forcing them to try to survive while trying to figure out what is going on.

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Set in the very near future, an elite squad of highly trained marines, led by commanding officer Captain Bukes are sent on a routine training exercise to a remote island – the precise location of which no one knows and from which all communications are cut off dead.

Accompanying them on the mission is ‘tech head’ Specialist Mills, a mysterious coder whose brain is interfaced with a computer.

Why do you like it?

This film had amazing visuals and special effects for such a low-budget film (allegedly less than $2 million according to some rumors that I saw online, but I have not seen any official listing of the budget for this film), I like some of the future technology that was shown (especially some of the cyborg technology), and I think that it was pretty good for a low-budget science fiction film.

Why would someone else like it?

I think that other people will like the visuals and special effects, the technology, some of the action and horror elements, and how it is a contained film that will probably remind you of some other films.

Final Thoughts

I think that Kill Command was pretty good for a low-budget film, but it had some flaws like: not explaining and setting up the world well enough, it could have had a bit more going on during certain parts that somewhat dragged a bit, and there were a few other issues; but for a contained film on such a low-budget they did a pretty good job.

The end,
