Set in a near future, technology-reliant society that pits man against killing machines. Against this backdrop an elite army unit is helicoptered to a remote, off-the-grid island training facility. What starts out as a simple training exercise for Captain Bukes and his tight-knit unit, descends into a terrifying battle to the death, as the marines discover the island is overrun by an enemy that transcends the human concept of evil.
Length 99 minutes
I wasn’t expecting much out of this one but it turned out better than I thought, mainly due to the female lead. Some of the logic used to move the plot forward is eye-rolling but I dug the premise and the last act makes up for a lot of the earlier goofiness. The robots are actually well designed and the CGI mostly holds up.
