Ambitious all action remake of the 1950s classic sci-fi movie Keanu Reeves plays alien visitor Klaatu, whose arrival on the planet sets in motion an apocalyptic series of events which could spell the end for humanity. In a race against time a young woman and her stepchild are the only hope of convincing Klaatu that the human race is worth saving from the impending destruction.
Fans of the original will be disappointed by this lacklustre remake which strays too far away from the original concept. But as a film in its own right it’s a very watchable and entertaining sci-fi action movie, however the updated special effects don’t make up for its obvious flaws in both the script and story.
Editors Rating: 6/10
