When his brother, Jimmy, lands in trouble with a local crime boss, the two siblings take the mysterious weapon and go on the run. Eli and Jimmy now find themselves in a life-and-death battle against an army of thugs and two heavily armored, futuristic soldiers who want their gun back.


  • Great visual FX (+1)
  • Kid isn’t too annoying (+0)
  • Decent theme (+1/2)
  • A little long
  • Slightly predictable plot (-1/2)

Fairly entertaining movie, slightly predictable but gets the job done. Probably the beginning of a series (this is just a pilot), but felt a little long. By the makers of Stranger Things, if this adds value in your book (not in mine).

Score: 6/10
