I would have to say that upon hearing about this movie, from Millenium and Nu Boyana, alarm bells started ringing, given the scope of the thing – post apocalyptic Blade Runner territory. That type of thing is usually reserved for two fields, one is a production with a gigantic budget and directed by the likes of Ridley Scott. The other appears on the SyFy Channel, where the main attraction is to find something hilarious to point at while ...

At one point in the 1990s Antonio Banderas was somewhat of an action star, before moving off to other things. Now it looks like he’s circling back around in this direction albeit with mixed results. His appearance in The Expendables 3 was kind of cringe-inducing and annoying (Banderas is one of the first semi-strong return rumors for The Expendables 4), Automata and Black Butterfly haven’t been too exceptional either. This week though a decent entry comes through for ...
