65 Movie Review

Looking for a sci-fi movie with non-stop action and prehistoric beasts? Look no further than "65," the latest blockbuster to hit theaters. While it may not be an Oscar-winning masterpiece, it certainly delivers on the promise of a good time.

One of the standout features of "65" is how quickly it jumps into the action. Within minutes, we're introduced to Mills, a futuristic spaceman who crash lands on prehistoric Earth and begins fighting for his life against bloodthirsty dinosaurs. The movie wastes no time in delivering on its promise of high-stakes thrills, which is a refreshing change of pace from more sluggish sci-fi films.

The dynamic between Mills and Koa, a young girl he befriends on his journey, is also a highlight of the film. Rather than falling back on tired movie clichés, Mills shows genuine kindness and patience towards Koa. He understands that she's scared and doesn't try to force her to be brave. This refreshing take on a well-worn trope is a welcome breath of fresh air.

Unfortunately, "65" falls short in a few areas. For one, the lack of explanation for how Mills ended up on prehistoric Earth can be frustrating. It's never quite clear whether he's a time traveler or an alien stranded on a strange planet. And while the non-stop action is thrilling, it can be overwhelming at times, leaving little room for character development.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment, however, is the lack of variety in the dinosaurs themselves. With so many species to choose from, it's a shame that the movie only features a handful of fairly generic creatures. This lack of creativity makes the dinosaur fights feel repetitive after a while.

Overall, "65" is a solid sci-fi romp that delivers on its promise of action-packed thrills. While it may not be the most thought-provoking or nuanced film, it's certainly a fun way to spend an afternoon. So if you're in the mood for some futuristic spaceman vs. dinosaur action, give "65" a shot.
