Revolt (2017) Review


Revolt is a 2017 American science fiction action film directed by Joe Miale. It was written by Miale and Rowan Athale, starring Lee Pace, Bérénice Marlohe and Jason Flemyng.
An American Special Forces soldier (Lee Pace), serving in Kenya, suffers memory loss after being knocked unconscious during a battle with highly electrified bipedal robotic machines.
He later wakes up in a jail cell wearing tattered fatigues and unaware of anything but memories of intense pain. He meets Nadia (Bérénice Marlohe), a French foreign aid military doctor in the adjacent cell who tells him he "sounds American" and they were taken prisoner by a gang of xenophobic thugs.
She calls him "Bo" after seeing the letters on his torn name tag. Nadia explains to Bo that the world had been invaded by alien machines which wiped out all the major cities and now systematically hunt down survivors.
After escaping the jail cell, Bo decides to make his way to a U.S. military base somewhere near Nairobi. Nadia unenthusiastically joins him. Bo only recalls fragments of what happened to him while discovering his ability to absorb, conduct, and discharge electricity.
Upon escaping attacking Kenyan soldiers who believe America must be controlling the "drones" since the enormous satellite dishes at the US base are still intact while everything else is destroyed. Bo and Nadia are captured by soldiers who use them as human bait for a failed machine killing operation.
