Terminus (2015)

Last night I stayed away from the Internet and the blog to watch, the Steelers take it to the Washington Redskins in their season opener. Honestly, there is nothing like opening weekend in the NFL and it is the greatest time of the year (next to Halloween). I did watch a few movies the day before and am now trying catch up. The next movie for review is the 2015 Australian Sci-Fi entry Terminus.

Plot/ Following a near-fatal accident, David Chamberlain makes an unprecedented discovery that will not only determine the fate of his family, but of mankind.

There are times where you can watch a movie, and not truly absorb it until a few hours later. That was the case with this movie. More of a drama than Sci-Fi You entry, this movie does paint a strange picture of society in a very familiar world that many of those who are awake will recognize. While the movie starts slow and has some sluggish moments, there are some interesting parts and enough atmospheres to make it a rather easy movie to watch. Unfortunately, the plot may be revealed too early, the performances are uneven, and some of the scripting is slow, aspects that definitely wear on you as a viewer. In the end, this is not a bad movie; it just does not live up to its potential and can feel unsatisfying. If you love Sci-Fi flicks, give it a shot; you could do worse.
