Marina Antunes [Celluloid 04.18.18] scifi action

Drones are already a part of every day life; from expensive toys to delivery services, they're cropping up everywhere, including the military but in Hover they are an essential tool for keeping humanity alive.

Written by Cleopatra Coleman (who also stars), this is the latest from Matt Osterman who previously directed Ghost from the Machine and Syfy's 400 Days. In this future, agricultural strain and crop shortages are commonplace and drones are used to maximize landuse and yield.

Coleman and Craig muMs Grant play compassionate care providers. They drive around and assist farmers in ending their lives when they get too sick to go on but at the sudden death of her partner, Coleman starts to think that the drones may be responsible for more suffering.

It's an interesting concept, particularly since drones are being used everywhere and technology is moving so quickly that it's only a matter of time before they're equipped with AI and left to make their own decisions (if that's not happening already).

Though the drone footage looks predictably hokey, the rest of the movie looks promising and I must admit, I'm curious to see what Coleman has in store as both writer and actress. I've liked seeing her on "Last Man on Earth" and am curious to see what else she has in store.

Hover will open theatrically on June 29 and be available on VOD and Digital HD July 3.

Recommended Release: Oblivion
