65 Movie Review:

You Won’t Be Watching For The Plot

65 has a whole lot of potential when you look at who is involved, but ultimately it wastes a lot of it.

That isn’t to say it’s not a fun movie, because it is. It just could have been better, and that’s a shame.

65 takes place 65 million years ago and follows a traveler, Mills (played by Adam Driver), who crash lands on Earth. Only one other passenger on their ship survives, a young girl named Koa (played by Ariana Greenblatt).

The two must traverse the treacherous terrain, while avoiding dinosaurs, in order to get to their escape pod. What follows is certainly more entertaining than not, but it does have its issues. The plot is never fully fleshed out.

Here’s the thing about 65. Is it fun at times? Yes. Is it a good movie? Not really.

If you are looking for a movie that features Adam Driver fighting dinosaurs, that is exactly what you are going to get. If you want more, you might leave disappointed.

The biggest problem lies within the plot. There are several things that are brought into the story that feel like they could have big implications, one in particular that happens to Mills but we are keeping this spoiler free, and then they don’t ever come back up.

65 is going to give the majority of audiences exactly what they want. It might not be perfect, but it is entertaining and fun.
