When a lowly postman is inducted into a top-secret superhuman DNA program at a research facility, it’s revealed that he’ll be able to receive, control and send information based on the senses of others.
That’s the intriguing premise for this thriller which boasts flashy opening titles, a cool theme and then, sadly, it just becomes annoying.
Shady characters who laugh for no reason; a Matt Smith-style hero (Game of Thrones veteran Eugene Simon) who bumbles around, but has special skills he doesn’t know how to use; a supporting cast of characters who clearly haven’t got a clue what’s going on, and scenes that should have been trimmed to the bone… but go on forever.
“Didn’t believe a word”
I thought I might be a tad unfair, but the consensus of opinions on IMDb also side with the dreadful. It’s badly scripted, the acting is like a Cambridge Footlights freshers’ show, and I didn’t believe a word of it.
Do yourself a favour and pick any of the Avengers TV series to see how this could have been done better.
