Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Spectral is an ok movie. It is better than most “soldiers-battle-something-supernatural” type movies that I’ve seen. James Badge Dale carries the film well. The supporting cast is solid (although Emily Mortimer is sadly underutilized), the visuals are good, and the film’s many action sequences are extremely well done. On the other hand, the story itself is relatively average and somewhat predictable with an underwhelming ending.
Final Grade: C
Thanks for reading!
