65: That Extinction Meteor Can’t Come Fast Enough.

Columbia Pictures

Storyline via IMDB:

After a catastrophic crash, pilot Mills quickly discovers he’s actually stranded on an unknown planet. Now, with only one chance at rescue, Mills must make his way across an unknown terrain riddled with dangerous prehistoric creatures in an epic fight to survive. From the writers of A Quiet Place comes 65, a sci-fi thriller produced by Sam Raimi, Deborah Liebling, Zainab Azizi, Scott Beck and Bryan Woods


The one thing you don’t want in a good dinosaur movie is a fast extinction. In 65 (on Netflix), however, that extinction meteor can’t come fast enough. Two boring humans, fighting dinosaurs and building family bonds along the way only creates R.E.M sleep when the dinosaurs are the only villains.

Columbia Pictures

A lot of 65 exists in nonsensical plot holes. There is no rational explanation as to why the ship and characters are thrown back 65 million years to the Mesozoic era. Or why even the rescue ship can see a distress signal sent 65 million years ago or the other part of the ship is separated from them very far away in a high mountain.

Columbia Pictures

The constant Dino battles get boring very fast. Yeah, I get it, it’s both a new family being formed and a grieving father getting over a daughter’s death. But there is nothing else going on conflict or theme wise. This should have been over 70 minutes ago. Actually, this should have been a short.

65 gets a 2.0 out of 5 or a C.
