Review: (#1) A surprisingly effective design that features a world being consumed by a virtual reality game. The conceptual execution works incredibly well. (#2) Reflecting destruction in the visor fits perfectly with the film’s plotting, but a casual observer isn’t likely to pick that up from this design.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: If you’re a sucker for compelling concepts, this one may be right up your alley. What appears to be a fascinating concept for a film is executed well in the confines of the trailer. Whether it works as a feature or not requires a full viewing.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
