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.
