Kill Command on Netflix, A movie Review

This is another quick review of a film that deserves all the time I took to write it! Kill Command!

Well, I was cruising all the pay channels that have the usual amount of nothing interesting on them and while scrolling through Netflix’s collective of their ‘nothing,’ I saw Kill Command… and it had almost a five-star review. (Take note of that review… I mention something about it later) It looked like a hokey movie, but almost five stars? Who reviewed it? Meh, who cares, so I brought it up! I mean, I’m already paying for Netflix, so what the heck, right?

So the film starts out with a girl, who at first, is so wired up into the network, that you think she’s a cyborg. She is inspecting some code in robots and notices something odd in the programming, but gets an atta-boy for noticing it.  Then she gets herself later assigned to be an observer of her company’s tech that is deployed on a military training exercise.

The cast includes Vanessa Kirby, David Ajala, Mike Noble, Tim Ahern and is directed by Steven Gomez who is more of a visual effects man and this is more or less his first movie he’s directed.

HEY, wait??? On IMDb it has a 5.7/10 and a 67% on Rotten Tomatoes. Huh, that’s a first, when RT has a higher score than IMDb. This did not seem to match up with the ‘star review’ system noted on Netflix’s review.

The teaser text says,

“In the near future, a training exercise leads to a fight for survival when Marines encounter advanced military robots on a remote island.”

Hmm… not too much to go on there! But hey, it’s Sunday night and I had nothing to do so I still played it up.

After the soldiers and our civilian observer are left on the island, our civilian observer notices some drones that are new and autonomous. Then she discovers a second robot controlling them, but while she’s trying to use her internal network to connect to it, it shuts her out.

Uh hu.

To be honest, this flick adds nothing new to the genre of military ambushed movies. After all is said and done, I was thinking it was a small scale Terminator kind of scenario. Yep, they’re fighting military robots and all, but it is just another military action flick and an OK time killer, but I don’t think you need to go out of your way to catch it.

PS: I don’t know who the hell gave it a 4.5 stars review so at this point, I’m suddenly not trusting Netflix’s review scores!
