    More fantasy than sci fi, the plot is very intriguing right up to the end. Cannot miss anything, especially since the shifting story never pauses. Ben Affleck helped make one of the more interesting movies I've seen in awhile.

    What happened there Roberto? Good actors trapped in a goofy mess
  • Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
    Robert Rodriguez's script might have a few promising elements, but the execution falls short in several areas. The narrative choices, editing, and character dialogue reveal significant weaknesses, leading to a subpar presentation that might even verge on hypnosis.

    Solid B-movie, more than it appears to be on the surface. Ben Affleck is believable to the end and Alice Braga as always has a great knack for finding interesting genre roles, which is probably her own secret superpower.

    Didn’t quite work. Ben Affleck was weirdly wooden, and the attempts at fancy special effects were mostly just confusing. I was also bothered by the body count. By all means, kill the big baddie. But all the minions? That just seems mean.

    Thriller in cui l'unica certezza è che nulla risulta essere come sembra; e questo purtroppo finisce per essere un canovaccio che non sorprende più e che col passare dei minuti anzi diventa una fastidiosa routine. Dopo un inizio piuttosto confuso ma allo stesso tempo ad alto ritmo, la sceneggiatura prosegue con una serie di estreme forzature e situazioni molto strane, che poi verranno parzialmente spiegate dal fatto che non siano reali quanto illusioni. C'è sempre però un sentimento di blocco che impedisce di immedesimarsi veramente con i due protagonisti e che rende la trama piuttosto cervellotica. Il finale poi è senza dubbio la parte peggiore di tutta la sceneggiatura, confuso in ogni suo dettaglio e veramente campato per aria; ciliegina sulla torta è il post credit che apre ad un sequel di cui nessuno sente il bisogno.

    The plot was predictable in many critical spots. I was glad I didn't pay $20 to see it. I watched as part of my Peacock subscription so it was worth the price.

    One of the worst movies I have seen lately. The worst thing is to try to make believe even nowadays that hypnosis is something that can transform people into automate obeying blindly to someone that would order them whatever he wants, which is a idea hypnosis that everybody (or almost everybody) knows now to be wrong...So the movie starts with an inconsistency idea from the first minutes, oups.

    The absolute worst Ben Affleck movie I've ever seen in my entire life. Special effects are a joke. The concept was out of control. Ridiculous. May the force be with you.

    The reviews make no sense, it was fun and entertaining, had spectacular twists and a really interesting plot that made me enjoy every second of it, movie review critics seem like a joke.
