Thoughts on The Prototype

ThoughtsThe Prototype is a low budget sci-fi film that will look to see the aftermath, battle to prevent and solution to stop the end of the world, in a way that would make sense, showing the bigger picture of what could happen to someone trying to learn to defeat a deadlier enemy. The Prototype uses the low budget side of the production to help focus on the dialogue, offing the deeper conversations about how things could be changed, when it comes to the action side of the movie, there is a clear weakness being show, which is going to have to be something you will have to overlook to get the enjoyment out of the film. The performances in this film are strong, without showing the weaknesses that could have come from the film.

Final Thoughts The Prototype is a solid low budget sci-fi movie with great ideas helping hide the weaknesses.
