NFLX2019 May 24th: Rim of the World

Rim of the World. McG. 2019. ☆☆☆☆★★

It’s a sci-fi movie by the guy who produces Supernatural? Sure, I’m in.

Oh, it’s a movie for children. Oh, well.

Hey, it’s kinda amusing. Lots of kooky characters; some great lines.

Heh heh. I laughed out loud in real life loudly. This is funny!

As with Malibu Rescue, I’m not totally sure whether this is meant for children or whether it’s a for stoned adults. Sine of the gags are a bit too gross for them to be for children, and the body count is too high, you’d have thought… But perhaps not?

And weirdly enough, once the aliens finally attack, it gets less interesting. There are individual scenes that are funny, and there are good action scenes, but something about the timing seems off. It’s not that it’s hugely over-long or anything, but it doesn’t zip the way it should. And some of the CGI is pretty unimpressive.

But… it is fun.
