Manifest Destiny Down: Spacetime

Manifest Destiny Down: Spacetime (2019) Movie Poster
USA  •    •  101m  •    •  Directed by: Jonathan Baker.  •  Starring: Jonathan Baker, Lexie Lowell, Jeff Kenny..
    An awkward OCD physics genius and a hot ex-Catholic sorority girl wake up after blacking out on a Halloween night to discover that they missed the evacuation of Earth. A mysterious agent pursues the feuding couple as they figure out how to work together to solve the recently entangled multi-verse and ultimately try to save humanity from AI.


First of all, you can't see this as your regular movie. No. This is the kind of thing that "that friend" would make. You know... ever heard "I have a friend who made a movie"? This is the movie heshe made.

The writing, the dialogue... Sweet baby Jesus... The characters don't grow at all and yet their personalities can shift in the blink of an eye. You won't understand their motivations most of the time and you won't relate to them because they're completely irrational. From missed queues to missed opportunities, sometimes it hurts how painfully slow the scenes progress. You'll find yourself asking "why?" some many times, it'll break any immersion. Weirdly, this made me care more about the actors and makers of the movie than the characters themselves.

Besides that, if you have an issue with the exploration of the female (ok, let's be fair, male too) body to promote a movie, don't watch it. It's unnecessary and cheap most of the time.

Prepare to have science thrown in your face. In that regard, I believe this was made for a very particular niche. I couldn't make out when the science talk was real and when it wasn't, so as far as science bable goes, this is 1010. However, if all the physics do checkout, then this was a waste of perfectly good science, simply because it's too advanced for the average viewer. To conclude in that aspect of the movie, I'm not sure if the target audience are science nerds or stoners. Now, I have to give points for one of the most brilliant ideas I've seen in a Sci-Fi movie. At some point there's this scene where the science is being explained (again) and you get graphics and pictures (of course), but... they throw in a bikini model. Why? No reason. Does it make it more credible? No. But it makes you not care, so...

Most of the simplest animations and effects look great, although they should improve their green screen skills (scenes inside cars, for example). Just, don't mind the more demanding scenes.

So, somehow, this reminds me of the projects I make with my friends. I can see an idea and heart behind it, even if the execution fails in some points. It makes me wanna be a part of it. Overall, I want to believe this was for them and I hope it was fun.

With a better script and just a bit better direction on the actors, they could make something with much better quality.
