DVD Review: DRONE WARS

DRONE WARS was directed by Jack Perez and stars Corin Nemec, Whitney Moore, Nathin Butler, and Sean Gunnell.

A small team of scientists hiding in Los Angeles are tasked with the impossible mission of stopping an invasion of drones from slaughtering all of humanity. When drones arrive in a flash, slaughtering humanity and stripping the Earth of its resources, a small team of scientists hiding in Los Angeles works to expel the drone menace once and for all.

The movie starts off wide open so there’s no lead in or character development so we just dive right in to the middle of this battle that’s already taking place. The whole plot is humans fighting for their lives against this mysterious drone threat that has arrived. The drones are sucking the Earth dry of its resources and it’s all up to this small group of rebels to try and stop them.

Of course, there’s also another group of troublemaking humans added to the mix who just get in the way of the heroes. These apocalyptic thugs are up to no good! There’s also this strange concept that if a drone hits you, you turn in to a flesh-eating zombie – or something like that? Anyway, the rebels battle it out with the drones while their scientists come up with a counter plan that will be able to ultimately stop this invasion and it works in the end.

The packaging comes with a slipcover/o-card. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details and some images. The DVD disc has a flat grey finish and only features the movie logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Drone Wars was a complete disappointment from beginning to end. We’ve gotten plenty of Syfy originals over the years and this one here is one of the worst ones to come along. The story was okay even though it did remind me of a few other sci-fi movie plots mashed together. Well, except for the whole zombie thing because it didn’t really make any sense. Make up your mind! Are we fighting zombies or drones! Anyway, the cast did their job and the special effects (mostly visual) all looked good so the shortcomings have to be blamed on the writer and director because this movie is a complete mess. Drone Wars releases on DVD on September 12th and unfortunately it’s not that good of a movie. Watch at your own risk.
