Revolt (NI Premiere)
In the war-ravaged African countryside, a U.S. soldier and a French foreign aid worker team up to survive a deadly alien onslaught.
When you blend the run down environments of District 9 with the survivalist elements of Falling Skies and the wasteland trek of Gareth Edwards' Monsters, you get the cool new science fiction action set piece, Revolt. Featuring many derivative moments and scenarios, this little gem of sci-fi goodness is a good enough entry in a world lacking the genre flicks we crave.
As a robotic alien species takes over the globe and attempts to wipe the slate clean of humanity using advanced weaponised technology, one lonesome military warrior must overcome a barren world riddled with death and soulless mechanical killers. While it's not going to win any awards for high art, this thriller features just enough great scenery to make it interesting.
