65 Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Normally sci-fi films reflect a new world or one that is totally in the past yet filled with new ideas. However, 65 is a feature totally on its own, which works and fails in equal measures. 

Starring Adam Driver, the feature sees his astronaut character faced with going back in time - 65 million years ago to be precise - after an asteroid collision. Teaming up with the only other remaining survivor, he must learn to live again and take on the dinosaurs threatening his existence. 

With Jurassic Park seeming to take on a similar style, this feature is very different. Unlike the reborn dinosaurs, who the humans can interact with, these are savage beasts. Ones who have no small features. Only big budget CGI ones that are a thing of beauty to film lovers. 

Created by the makers behind, A Quiet Place, the film provides Driver with an interesting new concept to explore. However, the whole story isn’t actually always exciting and many film fans will be able to guess the plot quickly. 

Whilst there are a few thrills, which you can see comes from the creators thrill seeking nature, there isn’t much that will have you on the edge of your seat. Yet, the journey within the film is still fun for all to embrace. 

Played out over just one hour and 30 minutes, audiences won’t have to sit for long to see the whole feature. Something that works in its favour, because dragging it out any longer could have made it a big flop. That it isn’t. But it would have been nicer to have a bit more of a gripping feel to the film overall.
