DEFIANT BY DESIGN.
In 2036, drone pilot Thomas Harp (Damson Idris) defies an order, killing two Marines; as punishment, he’s sent to Ukraine to serve in a war zone, discovering that his commanding officer (Anthony Mackie) is in fact an android. Even if you’re a drone pilot, sipping a Coke while pressing buttons, war is still bloody business. Perhaps we need to be reminded of that sometimes, even in a mediocre action movie like this; a lot of it depicts technology run amok in different ways. Hardly profound, but intense at times.
2021-U.S. VOD. 114 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Mikael Håfström. Cast: Anthony Mackie (Captain Leo), Damson Idris (Thomas Harp), Emily Beecham (Sofiya), Michael Kelly, Pilou Asbaek.
