R | 1h 30min | Horror, Sci-Fi | 24 May 2019 (USA)
What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister?
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for horror violence/bloody images, and language.
This felt like a stripped down, summarized version of this story. No time is really invested into characters, so you don’t really feel anything for them. The concept, while fascinating, is never fully explored. The actors all do their best though and are solid throughout. The film is also surprisingly gore-filled and there were some genuinely queasy moments. Everything just chugs along at a breakneck pace and it plays out as you’d expect. There was an opportunity to take a lot of chances with this story, but it decides to settle for being a mildly entertaining flick.
