| Best retro nostalgia of recent years
Just 5-6 minutes in the whole movie (mostly dialogs) are slack, the rest kept me watching - very good sign. In general movie looks VERY professional and well made, including casting of actors, retro-decorations (but with modern editing and good pace), whole aura. I've been really touched by this re-make of 80-s.

On the negative side is somewhat primitive agenda: excessive use of neo-Nazi symbolics transposed on "southern planter" image definitely looks like "Zombie Nazi in Space" exploitation and reduces the value of references to "based on real events movie". "Big shootout" looks unrealistic, with all respect - even if they wanted to add some pepper to make action "hot" it's not another "Matrix", and to me it seems that for this specific type of movie director definitely over-used ammunition and slow-mo sequences.

However general impression is not spoiled and I want to applause.
