My Thoughts

This movie had a better start than my brother GC and I had expected, and it started in a way that somewhat reminded us of the movies: Quarantine, Equilibrium, and Nineteen Eighty-Four.

We liked this movie better than the critics.

It felt more like a short film that was stretched out.

Some important details were not explained at all, the world was not set up well enough, which led to this movie ending in a flat and confusing way.

So this movie was probably a 3 out of 5.

The end,
