A bonkers film of both original and mishmash of already used concepts and ideas.

It is NUTS!

A crazy film of both an original and a mishmash of already known and used concepts and ideas.

Very well produced and vast sets with quality FX. Though there are some notable hiccups with them, they are is passable.

Interesting makeup and design of the "visiting" aliens, who have some dire plans for humankind.

A Russian film with American English dubbing. The attempt to match English words with Russian dialogue is done to a fair degree of success but it is tricky. It would have been better to have the original language with subs but, what has been done is ambiently effective. The dubbing production work is excellent. They have managed to carefully and perfectly recreate the audible environment with the exact same visual environments. Well done!

It's a crazy script, but worth a watch of this sci-fi multilayered wild ride of a movie.

The main issue I have is about the characters. I got confused as to who's who! So many characters that have partial storyline/arcs within the overall narrative that it was hard to know where we were geographically and who's story we should be following to get us to the finishing line.

That said we do get there, and what a finish it is.
Will let you discover it for yourselves.

Good but dubbed.

Incredibly well made film. Excellent acting, composition and direction. I would have given it another star only it is a dubbed film (into English) and it this spoiled it for me. I would much preferred if had been left in Russian and subtitled. Usually the extras allow this to happen but not in this case. Still a good film though and well worth watching. RJC.

English dubbed!
Verified purchase
Really enjoyed this film. Brought it without checking and realised it was English dubbed! Some of us can read! And prefer subtitles with the original audio. We don’t expect the whole world to speak English because we do. As a consequence, I have never watched this version and brought on dvd as a last resort. Please Amazon, give us the option. Nothing worse then watching a foreign film in badly dubbed English! The film is really enjoyable, fairly original. I love sci fi and so few decent ones come out. Very well worth a watch (or two!) just not dubbed!

Terrible film. If I could have rented it I certainly wouldn’t have purchased it. I will have to stop falling into the trap of believing Amazon’s rating.

Not very good
Verified purchase
This movie looks amazing in the trailer and it gets good reviews, but it really is not good at all. the action scenes are few and far between, the dialogue is terrible and the acting is wooden. Didn't make it to the end, just so dull and uninteresting.

The best sci-fi stories are coming from Russia these days. That was cool.
Verified purchase
This is a story i can get with. Gods and Zombies, aliens and earthlings, creation vs evolution. life vs death, compassion in mass genocide. Circle of life.

Only 1 scene i didn't think fitted properly. but i won't mark it down for that. i normally dislike dubbed movies. But i really enjoyed this.

this is proper scifi.
