Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I was surprised that checking online after quite enjoying Rim of The World, the reviews had been pretty brutal. In fact it’s probably one of Netflix’s worst rated films yet… which is odd as, whilst it’s not amazing, it more than passed the time and I wasn’t bored once. McG’s film has a certain late 80’s charm to it… a kids own adventure film set against the back drop of an alien invasion. The kinda film that was a staple of my childhood. Okay so it’s probably got less budget than BMX Bandits and it feels at times like an Asylum film but it for sure doesn’t deserve the panning it’s had. Watch it, on Netflix, and make up your own mind…
