I can for the life of me not understand why this movie was made.

The plot is incredibly unoriginal. Using Nikola Tesla and a half-witted conspiracy plot as the main storyline just did not work. Presumably, the writer used him because Tesla is currently in vogue, I suppose had he written the script a few years ago the plot would have revolved around an apple conspiracy.

While the acting was good and even featured some good actors the whole storyline was convoluted, boring, and just plain bad.

I can't help wonder who financed this thing and more importantly why did Netflix buy it and subject its viewers to it.
