Debug (2014)

Six young computer hackers, sent to work on a derelict spaceship, are forced to match wits with a vengeful artificial intelligence that would kill to be human.

The whole premise reminded me a bit of DOOM, or the Red Queen bit in Resident Evil, though this was way better than the former in all areas, and not so much like RE it really needs to be mentioned. Tough I'd be remiss to not convey any potential similarity that pops into my mind.

In unrelated impressions I was surprised to see Momoa here! Props. And I thought this'd be a worse movie than it was. Thought it'd be better too, occasionally, but they manage the atmosphere and building paranoia/fear masterfully. Also thought I already wrote up a review for this one but it's nowhere to be found right now so... strange kind of déjà vu. And potentially much shorter writing this time around since I don't really want to do that all again...

The actors here were good, the ending suitable for a dystopian sci-fi flick as such... and the highlight character (who I thought was an MMA fighter for some reason - either she has a look-alike or she's a good actor!) Jeananne Goossen carries the movie a fair share of the way.

Been reading reviews saying the atmosphere is the missing element here, but I don't see that flaw at all. It does however sometimes move a little slow. And the outside of the ship doesn't feel as well-done as it could've been.

Focus on the inside though. That's where you supposedly have your soul.

 rated 3.5/5: not bad at all
