  • Amazing

    By FanofMikeWasowskiRules

    EXCELLENT, cant wait for sequel/spin off
  • Falls short

    By nonickname4you
    First off you have to figure out what’s going on in the beginning because they drop you into a story with no lead up. Then there are complete scenes that are presumed not played out. Then the ending was abrupt and seemed like we were short changed. Good premise but poor execution.
  • Interesting story, good movie

    By Iggy81206
    Yes, I gave it 4 out of 5 stars, because there are a few minor "holes" in it. However, I'm rather tough when it comes to rating movies. Also, if possible, I would actually tack on 1/2 star to make it 4 1/2 stars. Some might call this a "discount X-Men" movie, and I could see their point. But being blunt about it, Code8 has a better story(the most important part of any movie) than X-Men. The main protagonist is a character that's easy to relate to, despite me not having super powers. He is conflicted, and imperfect. He makes some bad choices but for reasons most of us can relate to. My minor complaint(aside from a very few visible physics things) is that the "power levels" are never clearly defined. Is level 1 higher or lower than level 2? Is level 5 the best, or worst? Other than those, the story flows very well, characters are developed pretty nicely during the course of the story, and it makes a lot of sense from every perspective. So, in short, yes, I can recommend this movie, despite not hearing of it until the day I bought it and wrote this review.
  • It was ok

    By dev0516
    It was good but it was nothing like the short clip that they released a few years ago. I think that if they stuck to that concept it would be so much better. It was a good movie but I looked forward to it coming out for a few years and I was sorely disappointed.
  • Terrible

    By pholly
    This movie is a total failure, it fails as the political propaganda its trying to be and fails at making these horrible people with “powers” look like the victims this movie is trying to portray them as. There’s a reason this movie was so cheap at release.
  • Underrated movie

  • Would Be a Good Series

    By MathOsGuru
    Great pilot movie for a new sci-fi series. Could really mature into something worthwhile based on this starter movie. Well done.
  • utterly stupid horrible rubbish

    By unteruber
    nonsense, amateur plot and production values the cost of 99 cents was too high for this gem
