Going into this movie, I didn't quite know what to expect. All I knew is that it was a sci-fi movie starring Hugh Jackman. So I said sign me up! Although Hugh Jackman is not a police officer, the movie moves like a detective story. He serves as a sort of memory investigator. To put it simply, people come to him when they want to re-live a memory. The police also make use of his services from time to time. Suffice it to say one day someone important comes along and then they disappear and so Hugh Jackman has to use his skills as this memory investigator to try to track them down. One kind of cool thing about the movie is that Hugh Jackman's character narrates much of the film. So it feels like a very sci-fi noir experience. The setting is unique as it takes place in a sunken Miami, Florida after war and catastrophe has struck the planet and the sea levels are rising. Pet peeve of my throughout the movie was that Hugh Jackman is constantly biting off more than he can chew. He puts himself in losing situations again and again which can be extremely frustrating. I often felt like I knew what the outcome would be, even before the conflict started. That being said this is not an action movie. It's all about the story, all about his obsession, with finding this person that's disappeared. While it doesn't have a perfect ending , I still found the journey enjoyable. If you like a sci-fi setting, a good mystery and Hugh Jackman go ahead and give this one a try. Also for you mission impossible fans, you'll enjoy seeing Rebecca Ferguson play and different kind of role. This movie just released on HBO Max.
I just finished watching another life season 1 on Netflix and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! I thought it was pretty good. I'm a pretty big sci-fi fan, and was not expecting to like this series as much as I did. What thing that I felt really helped the show was the cliffhangers. Normally I don't care for cliffhangers because we normally have to wait for a new episode comes out. But since Netflix releases its seasons all in one go, I didn't mind the cliffhangers at all. Plus it still gave me that same effect I always wanted to see the next big issue resolved. Before I knew it, the season was over! They did a great job of making captain Niko believable as a pretty capable leader. However, my favorite character by far is William. He plays the part of the ships AI which far more human than any of the crew originally thought and then of course the crew they are a lovable bunch of oddballs. All with their own secrets and weaknesses. Somehow it all just works for me. I'm delighted to discover that although this was released in 2019 and got some terrible reviews, season 2 is coming out in the fall of this year! I won't spoil the ending to season q1 but there are some pretty big cliffhangers and I can't wait to see where they take the show next! If you're a sci-fi fan be sure to go check this one out! It''s a lot of fun and once the adventure gets going it really doesn't stop!
