Midnight Special is an entertaining Sci-fi flick that ultimately never reaches it’s full potential. The father son on the run story is griping and well played with the talent of Michael Shannon who is believable as a father who will do anything to get his gifted son to where he needs to be. Dunst and Edgerton do some fairly solid work also as Altons mother and I believe step father. The dialogue is believable, the action and Sci-fi elements are all well put together. The concept almost ET like is interesting. The CGI is acceptable if not spectacular. The music well scored if not memorable. I personally found this movie felt long at 1h52mins and for some reason I felt the movie should of been set in an earlier time period like the 70s or 80’s. These are small personal gripes and you may ask why it does not achieve it’s full potential. The answer is simply the way it ends, it felt small or empty. These characters had done so much, for this child and somehow the movie had left me with zero emotional connection to how the story played out. The father and son connection was the strongest element in the movie and this I felt needed a bigger part in the ending of this film, but for some reason they chose to pull back on this right at the buzzer. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Science fiction as a worthy watch. My final score 3.5 stars.
It’s like _Donnie Darko_ and _Looper_ had a baby. A less talented baby, but still, pretty impressive.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I strongly recommend you make the time._
Production, actors and some ideas are good, but the final spark is missing
I really enjoyed most of the movie thanks to the mystery factor, the actors who all play well – may it be the main or the supporting roles or the almost flawless production.
But there’s so much build-up for something minor. Potential is definitely there, but disappointing in total.
too many unanswered questions
Thought it was a great movie until it ended without completing the story. What was the purpose of the boy being in this world? How did his two normal parents give birth to boy with odd powers from another world? What was the purpose of the boy’s powers? What was this other world all about?
If the writers expected us to complete their incomplete story, that fell flat with me. The acting was great, the suspense was constant, but the ending was a disappointment. I expected the movie to pull things together and make sense. It didn’t.
