Star Performance

Chris Pratt is good in his action sequences and emotional scenes. Yvonne Strahovski, Ryan Kiera, JK Simmons, and Betty Gilpin provided enough support for the film’s flow.


The story is not something new, but the making is different from that of similar sci-fi thrillers. The stars are chosen well. The screenplay and dialogues are impressive, and the BGM is fantastic. The action scenes are choreographed well, and the cinematography is the biggest plus. The VFX works are perfect. The production and technical values of the film are excellent.
