I started seeing some trailers for this in the last month. It's playing at my local theaters. I think I might check this out over Madame Web

It's super early, but it has 4 of 5 good reviews on RT

Even Brian O, who is a tough critic at blu-ray,com gave it a positive review.

I think this looks fun and I am a fan of William Eubank and his Underwater film. I saw the first trailer for this a couple of days ago, so I can already tell that there was no marketing for it, and will probably bomb.

If Milo was not promoting this on the talk show circuit I would have never known it existed.

I assume they could have flooded NFL games with trailers of this but never saw one during a game.

I too wasn't even aware of this until this past week. Is their plan to give it a short theatrical release and then put it on streaming for rent/purchase? There has been close to zero publicity for it.

I'm seeing a matinee this afternoon. I only became aware of it a few weeks ago when the trailer popped up on my YouTube feed. I mean as mentioned, this probably had almost no marketing money going into it and is from a very small Indie distributor.

This was actually pretty good and badass. Pretty compelling action thriller. I've never been a big fan of Liam Hemsworth, but he was actually good here and same goes with Milo Ventimiglia. Crowe had a pretty substantial supporting role as a drone Pilot and his eyes in the skies basically. There were some intense shootouts, hand to hand fight sequences. This won't win any awards or make much money, but If you're a fan of miliary themed action movies, then this is definitely a worthy watch.

Not a bad way to spend 2 hours on a Saturday over that other universally panned movie.
