(2021) (Riz Ahmed, Lucian-River Chauhan) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramatic Thriller: A former Marine takes his two young kids on a road trip under the belief that he's protecting them from non-terrestrial microorganisms that have infected the planet.
Malik Khan (RIZ AHMED) is a 38-year-old former Marine who hasn't seen his two boys -- 10-year-old Jay (LUCIAN-RIVER CHAUHAN) and his younger brother, Bobby (ADITYA GEDDADA) -- for the past two years, with his story being that he's been engaged in top-secret work. He's now shown up in the middle of the night and rushes them away in his car, stating that he's taking them to a military base to protect them from non-terrestrial microorganisms that have infected half of the world's population, including the boys' mother.
Theybelieve him as they travel through mostly deserted parts of the western U.S., but we then learn that the truth is something different when his parole officer, Hattie Hayes (OCTAVIA SPENCER), wonders where he is, and FBI agent Shepard West (RORY COCHRANE) shows up claiming Malik has kidnapped the boys after binding and gagging their mother and stepfather. As Malik becomes increasingly paranoid about those microorganisms and his paternal instinct to protect his boys, others worry about their safety.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- The sci-fi sounding story might entice some.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For language and some violence.
