Movie review: Kill Command

Training on a remote island, a group of elite soldiers quickly discover their training mission is in reality training for an out of control group of lethal robots. The hunters have become the hunted.

Vanessa Kirby (Mills), Thure Lindhardt (Bukes), David Ajala (Drifter), Mike Noble (Goodwin), Bentley Kalu (Robinson), Tom McKay (Cutbill), Kelly Gough (Hackett), Osi Okerafor (Loftus), Damian Kell (Winder).

Kill Command begins well with some quick background and character introductions, followed by a brief bit of plot setup. Once the team of soldiers is on the island for training, things quickly escalate and action becomes more of a focus. As the soldiers realize the robots on the island have improved themselves and are now using humans to become better killers, suspense is added to the action with the rest of the film being a survival story.

Acting was interesting with Kirby delivering a decent performance. Ajala was enjoyable as well with nice delivery. Lindhardt was okay, as was the remainder of the cast, which fit the film well.

Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were good with nice use of natural scenery. CGI was extensive and for the most part well done with only a few scenes that felt overdone or out of place. Action was solid with good detail. Dialogue added some depth to the film but felt a bit rough. Sound and soundtrack were reasonable.

Quite simply, Kill Command is the familiar story of robots that are so smart they begin to self-improve and determine humans should be eliminated. The film doesn't add much to the genre, but is entertaining from a sci-fi perspective, which genre fans should enjoy.

With plenty of violence and potentially disturbing scenes, this should be fine for teens and above.
