A script coach next will get you so much farther.
The problem all the way through is where the “right gene” comes from and why THAT is important. Everything builds on that, from the original story to the acting to the rather spectacular and inventive SFX, which causes suspension of disbelief to NOT set it. Too bad. The $500.000 invested in this could have come to so much better use, if $5000 more was spent on a script coach with the good sense to permit an original story.
6/10 for all the good effort. I believe it could have earned 8/10 with a tiny origin story, how ever preposterous or mysterious.
