Settlers lost interest in its own story even before I did.

The story itself is simply too broad and stretched so thin that ... it never creates a real sense of specificity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

There's plenty of potential that remains in the work of Rockefeller and Settlers might have succeeded with a bigger budget, but for now it's best to leave this science fiction effort far behind.

Settlers, the impressively realized directorial debut of Wyatt Rockefeller, has all of the elements on the core science fiction checklist, it is properly a western.

It also finds room for some decent human drama ... And yet, by the end of the film, I struggled with feeling like I got much out of this.

Succeeds only in telling a clumsy cautionary tale of homesteading and violence on the planet Mars.

Rockefeller hopes to detail his dramatics in the dead air of this effort, coming up with something just short of interesting, though technical achievements are outstanding for an obviously low-budget offering.

The thing about withholding plot information is that you must generally divulge that which you've held back at some point. [Rockefeller] never does.

Settlers has a lot of familiar genre antecedents, but not much of a clue of what to do with them.
