Synopsis

Eli (Myles Truitt) is the adopted teenage son of Hal (Dennis Quaid) and brother of Jimmy (Jack Reynor), an ex-con whose recent stint in prison left him $60,000 in debt to Taylor Bolek (James Franco), a local criminal.

Suspended from school for fighting, Eli scavenges for scrap metal in old buildings. One day, he discovers a ray gun alongside the bodies of two aliens. He brings the gun home and discovers that only he is able to operate the weapon.

In order to get the violent Taylor off his back, Jimmy tries to pull off a robbery, but when it doesn't go as planned, Jimmy goes on the run with Eli. They're closely tracked by an angry Taylor, who is ready to kill them both if he doesn't get his money.

Based on the short film Bag Man by Jonathan and Josh Baker, who directed this film.

  • 4 stars "Better than THE LAST AIRBENDER!"
  • 1 star "The characters in this movie have such misguided morals of what is right and wrong, making this movie difficult to watch. Did Hollywood believe that CGI could save this movie? Wrong. Wait for it to go to the cheap theaters or Netflicks."
  • 4 stars "Pros: Setting: takes place in believable settings Actors/Actress: good acting by Myles Truitt (plays Elijah), Jack Reynor (plays Jimmy), Dennis Quaid, Zoe Kravitz and excellent acting by James Franco. Plot: is good with a sci-fi twist Storyline: easy to follow Cons What I disliked was the strip club setting. I do not think it was appropriate or necessary, particularly for a PG-13 rating."
