My thoughts:

I dug this movie and I feel that it's watch a watch, but I can see why some folks might not. It's a small film that does a good job of feeling like its bigger than it actually is but not at the level of the big budget summer superhero movies the we are now use to seeing. It isn't special effects driven but it has a few really cool ones which is impressive considering the budget. 

This movie kinda reminded me of "Chronicle" as where the story is pretty basic but you don't mind it because you enjoy seeing the characters and you care for them pretty quickly. I did revisit this movie a couple of more times since my initial viewing. Check it out! J
