This is a movie that values its audience's time and doesn't screw around with a bunch of fluff. Within two minutes of the start we're blown into the action and racing against time for survival. We're harried and scraped through increasingly perilous situations, dire fates looming centimeters away from us as we try to figure out what's happening.
But then the twist.
And I won't spoil it, because I wasn't expecting it. But as a fan of movies who 'go for it' and aren't afraid to get weird to tell their story...this movie gets WEIRD.
And it's all over in 88 minutes. Including the Schwarzenegger-esque finale with close-ups and one-liners galore this film leaves you absolutely satisfied at the use of your time.
This movie didn't get half the credit it deserved in theaters. It's The Abyss without extra hour of expository nonsense. It's a kinetic action film that moves its heroes along with the stakes--And then it gets weird and even more fun.
Watch this movie. It's not going to give you a moral, it's not a political commentary, it's just a solid action film.
