‘Predator’, ‘Aliens: The Return’, ‘Jurassic Park’, ‘Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Interstellar’ are just some of the titles emulated without qualms by this action fantasy about a humanoid alien trapped in a prehistoric forest. whose survival depends on fighting a handful of dinosaurs. And this lack of originality is not the only imperfection that its directors, Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, try to hide by giving the story a frantic pace. It’s also an incredibly obvious movie – it plays out exactly as one would expect it to based on that premise – and, at the same time, almost everything that happens in it is completely illogical; It is not by chance, in this sense, that in its brief footage one can detect scars undoubtedly left by all the deleted scenes in the editing room.
Either way, ’65’ advances so quickly that it does not take the necessary trouble to reach the scale that one expects from Hollywood monster movies; its digital effects are rather poor -it is no coincidence that the dinosaurs almost always remain in the shadows-, and its action scenes are merely passable. But the big problem with him is that, largely because of the seriousness that Adam Driver’s performance exudes, he is restrained rather than let loose and capitalize on both his B-movie status and his own idiocy. he.
