Thoughts on Warning
Thoughts – Warning is a series of interconnected sci-fi stories connected by an incident in space, each stories will get its own moment in the spotlight, with the full-blown science religion discussion in one where Alice Eve shines in. the creepy electronic stalker figure in another, which is the closest the film goes into full horror, with Kylie Bunbury) giving us an excellent performance. Annabelle Wallis and Alex Pettyfer are involved in a story that will ask a bigger life expectation question, one that will put love into the discussion when it comes to what the wealthy could do in the future. Thomas Jane gets the most isolated story, alone, dealing with his character getting a chance to look back at his own life, while facing his own mortality. There is one problem with the stories and that comes from how certain stories will be spliced together with others, jumping into another one, but when we get all the focus on one, which will do, we get the most interesting story, despite the fact we have a series of stories that offer up plenty of bigger questions about faith and science, which will the be closest to a Black Mirror idea we have seen in a while, they could have all been longer though, which will leave some of them not getting enough time to flush out the bigger picture being told.
