Code 8 never really grabbed me, though I managed to watch it all the way through. Perhaps I am an outlier viewer, but I would have liked to see more time spent on why society lowered the status of the super-powered people to practically second class citizens. To me that might have been more compelling viewing than the details of Connor’s descent into crime or his mother’s rather stereotypical declining health. But within its narrow plot and limited number of interesting characters, it may have been less than great, but it was better than mediocre.
I thought the trailer made _Code 8_ look like it was gonna be pretty bad, but I liked the premise, and I wanted to see what Stephen Amell could do in a 2019 feature film, so I gave it a chance, and while I don’t think it was great, it was better than I had been expecting. There were some bits that sort of reminded me of last year’s _Darkest Minds_, and that’s definitely a bad thing, but overall it was actually pretty decent. It goes for both the social commentary, and a *pew pew splodey zap zap* action crime thriller. It doesn’t work **spectacularly** as either, but it tries, and its failures certainly are not abysmal ones.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
A mutant movie done right
Code 8 is a mix of Blade Runner (for the music style and the image texture and color) and X-Men for the scenario. It’s a very good movie. It’s a little bit like if the director and the producers said « ok teenagers have the X-Men saga, let’s do something around the same idea but for adults ». The are no jaw dropping special effects, mutants (called “person with abilities” in the movie) dont do funky stuff.. every body acts great.. it’s the kind of sci-fi movie that will very likely go unnoticed and it’s a shame, it deserves much much more.
better scifi movie than most recent high budget scifi movies
Im not an arrow fan but still i enjoyed this movie, great main actor and in general i like the acting from the main cast. i know this movie was sort of crowdfunded and had a modest budget, suprisingly enough you barely notice its low budget, they really got the maximum out of it. i give this movie a rating of 8 because i watched so many recent scifi-movies that had much bigger budget and big names attached to it that wherent even half as entertaining as this one.
