Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Very good although perhaps not the easiest film to watch as it raised a lot of moral questions and at times made for somewhat uncomfortable viewing, but it kept our audience riveted throughout and was full of suspense. Comments from the audience afterwards included ‘fantastic’ and ‘brilliant’ so it was very well received and we would certainly recommend it for Flicks.

Kept us on the front of our seats, great. Well worth watching, go see it.

A near perfect film that had everyone on the edges of their seats. Very thought provoking leaving an element of wonder as to whether this is what future warfare will boil down to? Some discussion on whether the finale added or subtracted from the conclusion. Superbly directed and rated excellent by 94% of audience.
