Trailer - Arq
Netflix has been really churning a steady stream of hits lately. That's not to say that they haven't had a couple of duds though; the most recent ones being primarily Adam Sandler endeavors. Here we have another Netflix original film called Arq which is a sci-fi thriller directed by Tony Elliot and starring Stephen Amell (Arrow) and Rachael Taylor (Jessica Jones). Netflix just released the first trailer and poster which can be views below:
If I'm being perfectly honest, I'm not quite sold on this. I've seen this type of Groundhog's day type of film done to death, and if you're going to use that premise, at least take it in a new direction like Source Code did. Arq hasn't shown me anything distinguishing other than the fact that two people are aware of a time loop instead of one. I also am tired of the generic way in which these low-budget sci-fi flicks are filmed, it looks a bit cheap. That being said, I will hold off on judgement until the film releases on Netflix on September 16th, 2016.
