IO (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

just another Sci-Fi film—takes the whole movie to get off the ground and then chooses a conclusion that’s not well defined. To its credit the movie has some good camerawork and the acting is quite good, but it seems there needed to be some pre-story to explain much of this film such as why Danny Huston is not a larger figure in the movie.

Maybe. For your time and money, a better sci-fi flick is The Core.
