After last night’s debacle with Sharkenstein, I had hoped that maybe my next selection would be better. Unfortunately, in some ways it may have been worse. What was that movie? It was the 2016 Sci-Fi/action flick Beta Test.
Plot/ Champion gamer Max Troy discovers events in a new video game are being mirrored in the real world, and must join forces with the game's protagonist, Orson Creed, to unravel the conspiracy before the game's sinister plot overwhelms the city.
This has definitely been a bad week for me with movie selection. Seriously, it feels like nothing I can throw on the television (except Darling) is worth watching. This one is bad, very bad. The acting ranges from poor to bad with cardboard characters and horrid/predictable dialog, the writing is all over the place, and the production values/cinematography is laughable at best. Although the movie is below SyFy Channel bad, the storyline did at least seem to have some promise when reading the synopsis, but other than that, there is really nothing that could make it memorable in any way, shape, or form. In the end, stay away from this one, it really is not worth your time.
