Kiwi filmmaker Roseanne Liang (My Wedding and Other Secrets) very much delivers the genre goods in this rip-roaring high-concept World War II action thriller...

If not for Moretz’s expressive face, the film might stall out before it really gets rolling.

It helps that Roseanne Liang’s horror-action hybrid leans confidently into its schlockiness.

Liang leverages the absolute implausibility of the film's later scenes into something brisk and exciting right to the very end.

A sincere but silly mash-up of WWII dogfights, gremlin chaos, and feminism in action.

Liang so fully commits to its over-the-top sensibility that you’ll be clutching the armrest and grinning with glee for most of the ride.
