  • Brimming with ideas and laudable ambition, it's well worth a look. show more

  • Despite some striking imagery and sterling FX work, Welsh writer/director Caradog W James’ expert use of limited resources doesn’t stretch as far as the subtlety-averse script. show more

  • The characters could use more depth – Vincent’s backstory is told too swiftly, and his bonding with Ava is brief. But it’s still a smart, thought-provoking little thriller with strong central performances. show more

    beautifully done! English government hires Chinese assassins to divert American scientist, then resubmit her into a new state where she may become the fighting machine for England. England also hires mobs from Iran to act as security force who control the scientists and the cyborgs working for English entity. America becomes a war machine for England, and Iran is the controlling force for the continuation of this war. But who is England fighting against?
