Story: Cosmic Sin starts when an alien civilization sends an attack back to Earth from their own planet, leading to General Ryle (Grillo), James Ford (Willis), Braxton Ryle (Lee), Dash (Large), Dr Goss (Reeves, and Marcus Bleck (Mandylor) leading a retaliation attack on the civilization.

Thoughts on Cosmic Sin
Thoughts – Cosmic Sin is a sci-fi action film that sees the human race getting involved in a war against an alien civilization that could destroy humanity at a dramatic pace, leading to a group of soldiers looking to end the threat before it happens. When it comes to sci-fi stories, this does feel like it is just another version of a story we have seen before, with ‘Doom’ being the most notable version of the story. This is a story that could be an easy watch, but it tries to do more than it needs to, leading us down a path where everything is more in complicated battle between the soldiers themselves, leaving any moment of impact feeling flatter than it needs to be. We have Bruce Willis in here, which doesn’t help and with Frank Grillo also involved, we know where things are going with this film. The effects are not the strongest either, which doesn’t help with the bigger moments, where most of the human characters are walking around in what look like horrendously heavy suits.
Final Thoughts – Cosmic Sin is a simple action sci-fi movie that can kill the time without being ground breaking.
