I hardly know where to begin describing how awful this movie was but I’ll try.
The dialogue was dreadful.
The soundtrack was out of place.
The acting was terrible..Chloe was ok but she had nothing to work with.
We are used to seeing the laws of physics be bent at will but this movie just pretends they don’t exist.
The story starts with a woman carrying a secret package boarding a transport bomber during ww2 and we get the obligatory “A Woman!”
Over and over and over.
Then the movie proceeds in a manner that broadcasts to the audience that the writers have absolutely no clue how the military or airplanes function.
Now we move on to other cliches.
Drops her gun,,, just manages to grab it.
She sees something,,, nobody believes her.
She shoots the guns,,,, Annie Oakley.
Bullets hit everyone,,,, except her.
Lies to the crew,,, it’s ok though cuz her husband beat her.
Kills creature,,,,, premature death.
After crash landing the thought to be dead creature shows up surprising nobody in the audience.
Heroine beats up the creature and kills it with her bare hands.
“Keep in mind that earlier in the movie this creature was literally tearing the metal airplane apart with its claws”
I should add that the secret package she was bringing on the airplane was her baby.
The final scene was her sitting high on a ridge breastfeeding her baby.
In my opinion the director was going for the girl power theme but it was just full of cringe moments.
The wife and daughter felt the same so it isn’t my lone opinion.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this one like the plague...
Unless you want to get a case of PTSD...
ETA. The trailer was without a doubt better than the movie.

Hey, you're more of a man than I am, I couldn't get through the trailer! heheh
(Movies are a thing of the past now, aren't they?)
It was like a car wreck... I couldn’t look away.
As for movies today...
I think we should all remember that a few years ago a movie about a deaf woman falling in love with and then having sex with a fish man won the best
picture Oscar. I wish that was a joke.

I watched that movie, it had a 'look' that I liked, but I was hoping that it wasn't what I was afraid it was going to be.
Of course, I lost on that deal.
My T.V. has a really thick coating of dust, all of my remotes have dead batteries, and I can't remember how to work the box anymore anyway.
I have 4 T.V.s and I rarely watch them, T.V. ain't what it used to be.
The confessions of a white supremacist, I guess, my white privilege at work.
