Rock solid; Enjoyable.
9 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Loved the performances from the soldiers, their voices were extremely believable; they spoke with clear intent and purpose throughout.

The action was well choreographed. I found the sound design to be well done and matched the FX (visual) and corroborated the story being told.

The dialog made good sense, and there was an excellent focus on information being conveyed back and forth throughout the characters' interplay, and for the story itself.

I found the revelations and discoveries to be quite interesting, feasible, believable, and relatively congruent with science to be satisfying.

The first film (for this individual) which relied heavily on "on- the-ground" military action that I felt was non-offensive, nor hyper-stylized...

I applaud the film-makers here! Rock solid; Enjoyable.
