Spectral 2016 (film review)
"A sci-fi/thriller story centered on a special-ops team that is dispatched to fight supernatural beings." IMDb
The film is set in the near future, war is back in the Balkans and special op's teams are using the latest "night vision"multi spectral goggles. They start seeing strange things, then deaths follow, the goggles expert is sent out to try and find out what is going on.
What follows starts as a sort of war film and ends up as sc-fi.
The locations are great and the special effects well up to scratch. For me though while I enjoyed the film it went too far towards the end and got a bit silly.
Fair enough develop kit to see and stop the "beings" but why did they have to make the silly poncy body armour. Remember they are making this stuff out of junk left behind, yet they had enough junk to make a full set of armour and weapons for the whole team and loads of spare power packs. Sorry guys not going to happen.
Waynes rating 6/10 worth a watch.
