Spectral is a science fiction movie about U.S. special operations forces set in today’s world and timeline but with some SciFi mixed in. Some type of otherworldly force is wreaking havoc on a war-torn East European city (located in the small country of Moldova) and a special ops unit requests the assistance of an engineer from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to help explain the strange happenings.

Spectral is available on Netflix and I took the opportunity to watch it over the holidays. It is good entertainment but it is science fiction to an extent so you have to swallow that “I believe” pill. I wouldn’t watch it again but don’t regret being entertained for a few hours.
