First; I don't like the new star rating system. I liked it better when they picture the number of stars. Not one star with text for rating.
This movie is in serious need of a new director & screen writer. They fixated too much on the bad air & endless wasted shots of people running through it with failing hazmat suits. Not once did anyone bother to fix the com system between the hazmat suits and their command center or the suits continuous degradation. Yet they have no problem reading the suit integrity data which showed the shelter command had contact but didn't let the people outside be heard. Probably deliberate but no one bothered to check the problem.
Then there was the raving & rioting of the minions and the political backstabbing & brutal military not following orders. I'm really sick of violence & loudmouths. They need to focus on the story & character interaction for a change. That's what made Star Trek so popular. The character formula & fresh scifi space stories.
Let us not forget the Androids on this movie who decided humans weren't worth saving. Then there was the totally unnecessary scene of the rioters burning their leader alive while his backstabbing assistant survived. We don't need to see people burned alive or an hour of people choking on poisonous atmosphere in every scene.
This movie also needs better audio. They need to do some major overhauls in personnel before making another movie. This one could also use a better name.
You'll get sick of the running in poison gas with failing suits which is the very first scene & ridiculously long & monotonous. Then the same type of scenes repeated every 10 minutes. I also found it unbelievable that they had no idea of the status & locations of other shelters, and little detail on how they got that way. I fast forwarded it the first time & finally want back & rewatched the entire film.
I cannot recommend it.
