    This was so good and came out of nowhere. I went on Rotten Tomatoes today to see what might be good in theaters and watched this completely blind, no trailer, just skimmed the reviews. Highly recommend everyone do the same. It was such a surprise and so much fun.

    All you need to know is sci-fi movie with Logan Marshall-Green, it's violent and funny, Ex-Machina meets John Wick.

    I just saw this tonight and went in completely blind. This was a lot of fun, i enjoyed it a lot more than i anticipated.

    Totally would've seen this if my goddamn cold wasn't still going on. Sounds like it's awesome

    Takes a little bit to get going, but so fun and worth it once it does.

    Are we sure this isn't Venom because the trailer definitely made it look like Venom

    This was really good, some of the dialogue was pretty bleh, but there was more substance to this than I thought there'd be based on trailers

    The action sequences with STEM taking over Grey's body are a fucking joy, the unnatural sweeps and cuts (not to mention the animatronic like lurching of his body to and from), I wish there was just a bit more.

    3rd favorite movie of the year for me. Unexpected treat. When STEM first takes over I was not expecting the action style and I was laughing from how much fun it was.

    I will say though I couldnt get out of my mind how much the dude looks like Hardy. I couldnt stop thinking about it lol

    I think this for overhyped for me. The fight sequences were incredible and to be commended , but everything in between I found super boring. Didn’t really care about any of the characters.

    Overall this was pretty fun. It felt like an episode of Black Mirror. The camera work during the fight sequences was fantastic and felt really unique. I'll agree that the characters weren't all that interesting, but still, it was a good time.

    Ended up seeing this because Incredibles 2 was sold out. Like others I'm guessing, I really hated the villains in this, but this didn't disappoint otherwise. Logan Marshall-Green truly carried this film on his back

    That was perfect. I'm still so glad I didn't watch a trailer (that's really going to become my go to). That shot and the subsequent sequence made my jaw drop. I was in glee. Still one of my favorite movie experiences of the year. Might end up in my top 10.

    Same here, I was just like “lol wut” — totally made it worth the price of admission for that alone.

    Just watched this for the first time and loved it. I'm glad they subvert the predictability at the end. Really liked the ending.

    The shot of him cartwheeling in the fight was so incredible.

    The idea for a series is the same way I feel about the “Snowpiercer” series- loved the movie, but I wouldn’t watch a variation of it every week.
