Weaknesses: The script is kind of a mess. There is way too much going on to make this work. It's as if the filmmakers had a bunch of ideas and instead of weeding them out, forced them all into this. It makes for a sloppy movie. A lot of this plot just serves no purpose. Things happen early on in the movie that get no resolution and plot threads teeter off with no real explanation. Good actors like James Franco (Taylor Balik), Dennis Quaid (Hal Solinski), and Carrie Coon (Morgan Hunter) are all kind of wasted, while Jack Reynor (Jimmy Solinski) misses the mark as one of the main characters.
Overall: There's some solid acting and a cool concept in this movie. There also happens to be way too much going on and none of it means anything. It makes watching this kind of pointless. A big disappointment.
This movie proved to be better than Stranger Things if you ask me, which was something I never thought was possible. I simply cannot understand why people hate this movie so much. They say its because nothing is explained. So what? If there will be a sequel, everything will be explained, but all those HATERS are PREVENTING that from happening with all of their HATE. They think everything needs an explanation. Its as if they have never seen a Stanley Kubrick film. NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS AN EXPLANATION TO BE GOOD, OR IN THIS CASE, MAGNIFICENT.
