S.U.M.1 (2017) Fantasia 2017

S.U.M.1 is a soldier living in an underground bunker. Humanity has been largely wiped out and has been forced to live underground by the Nonsuch an  alien race that invaded. Allowed above round during a 100 day tour in the military S.U.M. sends his time in a tall tower monitoring the sensors. But staring so much at the screens makes one wonder about things like, what happened to the guy who was here before...

Great looking Spartan film suffers from a severe sense of deja vu. We have been here before any number of time. Feeling at times like some of the live action work of Mamoru Oshii the film is largely S.U.M. wandering around alone, dealing with a couple of people before we get to the end and the revelation. It wouldn't be bad but other than looking utterly spectacular (even with an over se in some sequences of CGI)

Watchable but I hoped for more
