A well thought out and intriguing horror

The simple concept actually contains a lot of depth. Uncanny without cheap tricks, a spot-on atmosphere, symbolism and metaphors without being pretentious. The finale is spectacular too; no matter how bizarre it was, it somehow made sense.

Tiresome scifi bonanza

There's actually some okay stuff here and there: some effects, some scenes, some concepts, some designs. But it's just so bloated and hysteric, like they wanted to include everything they could think of and barf it onto you in an endless stream. Extremely tiresome.

Refinened horror that mixes several discomforts but remains subtle

A refined, slow and uncomfortable movie that blends the horror with the dread of disease, the feeling of being unable to leave and helplessness. I thought it was really good watching it, but did notice it fading from my memory pretty fast afterwards - usually caused by a lack of standout moments.

A quick fix of dead space terror but not much else

Fairly competent as a gung-ho heavy duty space zombie action animation, wisely not holding back in blood and guts, but ultimately lacking in depth, truly memorable moments or interesting characters.
6.5

Age of Tomorrow

On alien attack on earth, seen from the perspective the crew of a space mission and also from some firefighters on earth

Make sure you are drunk first

I bet that if you got drunk, and watch this with some friends, who are also be drunk, you could fall into a state of endless uncontrolled laughter. Other than that, we are in Sharknado territory quality wise, but without it intentionally trying to be silly (I think).
