Russia is - rapidly - proving that it can give Hollywood a run for its money...
The SFX are pretty damn impressive...and, the score! A swelling beauty!
Admittedly, this does tick all the 'young adult' boxes...and, seemingly, the 'young adults' of Russia flocked to the cinemas to watch it!
Considering it was made in [dictator] Putin's Russia...it delivers some incredible [and risqué] messages...it's anti-war, there's a gay kid, government defiance...and, it's damn fine entertainment to boot!
An alien spaceship, following an accident in space, enters the earth atmosphere and being damaged by Russian fighter jets, crash lands in a populated area of Moscow taking a few hundred human lives in the crash. A school girl saves the life of one of the aliens and together must deal with humans who intend them harm.
