Reviews:

“I did appreciate the storyline after all its points were resolved, though I feel viewers might not endure the entire run if patience is an issue. As stated earlier, this film is true science fiction that offers an original premise and outcome. I predict viewers will either love or hate it splitting the reaction to it right down the middle.” HNN
