From the trailer this ticked a lot of boxes, which looked to be a promising sci-fi flick. But sadly after half an hour in, my mind started wondering elsewhere, and after an hour I was hoping it would end soon.

There was very little character building, so those like his sister and her son I didn't care about, or his boss, or the 'rebel' leader guy, not even the main character.

Maybe I need to see it again, but I don't know what role Dan Stevens was playing or why he was working for Alterplex other than he used to be a pilot. It's like they had a loose story-line; An energy company/science experiment tries to create unlimited energy source, it goes wrong, send Dan Stevens to switch it off. The script writers then tried to build it up from there, padding it out with CGI, chase scenes, a few ingredients of other films Demolition Man (underground rebels), Doom (first person shooter) etc

Most of the film is filmed in first person, so you're basically in a video game you have no control over. I don't know why this is, other than to try and be original or clever, to make you feel like you're in the movie, but it fails on every level. The chase scenes tried to be dramatic and tense, but again I just didn't feel it. Maybe if you're an avid video-gamer you might like it, but I can't see any other reason than that.
