Film Review: Debug

Sponsored by:

Share This Article:


Dire horror films seem to come out of the woodwork this time of year, what with Halloween and Christmas on everyone’s mind.

Debug is one of these. It’s a tedious and badly acted science fiction, cyber-thriller and the debut feature from writer/director David Hewlett, who some may know as an actor in content such as Stargate and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

The plot follows a group of criminals sent into space to use their code-hacking knowledge to override computer systems and restore them to use. It goes without saying that weird stuff starts to go down onboard the spaceship and we get a lot of post-Alien claustrophobia-inducing hysteria and screaming.

One possible draw for people may be the brief appearance of Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa, though he isn’t particularly memorable. We are never really allowed to get to know any of their characters and, judging by how unlikable they all are, this may be no bad thing.

There is the obligatory scene of a women put in a position of sexual threat whilst only in her underwear.

The more gore-based sequences are nasty without being interesting or original.

Overall, this is time-wasting rubbish. Avoid.

Debug is released on 3rd November 2014. The DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD download is released by Signature Entertainment, Certificate 15. Watch the trailer below:
