I do wonder what the point was? To create a new generation of fans of the grid based battle game, or to make that same generation join the navy… Precisely neither will work! Though its a serviceable cliche fest quite why they bothered to make this remotely about the board game I have no idea! Why even aliens! Why isn’t Liam being more badass! So may questions we will never know the answers to, unless we ourselves go on the incredible journey from pick up sticks to intergalactic war film!
