Imposter starts with just a slight bit of background before the plot takes over and the film moves into a good pace. With a nice amount of action and intrigue, we can’t help but try to figure out the ending as implications mount against Spencer. With an excellent twist at the end the film finishes with shock that leaves us wondering how we didn’t see it coming.
Acting was surprisingly good with Sinise pulling off his role very well. Stowe also did nicely and played against Sinise nicely. D’Onofrio was excellent as the antagonist and fit his role perfectly. The remainder of the supporting cast was solid and contributed well.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were all good with nice attention to detail. Effects, CGI and physical, were nicely done and fit the film very well. Dialogue was good and moved the story along at a nice pace. Sound and soundtrack were both solid as well.
Overall Impostor is a well done sci-fi thriller with good quality from most every aspect. The story is interesting, flows well, and moves along at a good pace. Those who enjoy a solid thriller or a more detailed sci-fi will likely enjoy this one quite a bit.
With intense violence, some foul language and sexuality, this one should be fine for teens and above.
Impostor is no longer showing in any Littleton, Colorado movie theatres.
