Plot:

In a world where families are limited to one child due to overpopulation, a set of identical septuplets must avoid being put to a long sleep by the government and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.

Review:

After watching the trailer I was hoping for more of an action based movie about sisters that work seamlessly together to thwart their government. That’s close to the exact opposite of what I got.

About a third of the way through I realized I would not be getting a super happy ending and then just over halfway through I figured out what was going on but continued watching in the hopes I was wrong. I was not and it was a bit depressing.

The movie did end on a slightly positive note for the sisters, but for the world as a whole it was pretty negative.

The acting was good, so at least it had that going for it.

2.5/5
