‘Last Sentinel’ (2023). Movie Review: A sci-fi one… retro-style


Last Sentinel is a film directed by Tanel Toom starring Kate Bosworth and Thomas Kretschmann.

Last Sentinel is one of those films that, unfortunately, will not go down in history. It entertains, just enough, but it never ceases to be, look, and behave like what it is: a film with a limited budget whose only appeal is to let us see Kate Bosworth again, who, within her limited role, does the job very well.

Movie Review

Last Sentinel is born as one of those films that, when they come out well, have a lot to offer, especially as a showcase for the director to shine, Tanel Toom in this case. He proves he knows how to do his job. It is a well shot film (given the circumstances), whose idea could not be simply better exploited as the script by Malachi Smyth was written.

Little action and a lot of tension, but so braked that it doesn’t get to burst. The prolonged tautness that was asking for a great finale that never came.

It doesn’t end up hooking the spectator, it gets lost in endless dialogues.

A movie that will leave the viewer asking for that “something else” that the film does not manage to grant.

A movie that, in short, doesn’t win over the viewer.

And that is a very bad thing to be remembered for.
