'Interceptor': Netflix movie hits No. 1, but viewers call it 'one of the worst'

There seems to be little logic behind the movies and TV shows that dominate Netflix’s Top 10 rankings.

Sometimes it is the most recent original offer of the service of streaming; other times, it’s an arbitrarily forgotten thriller from over a decade ago.

Interceptorthe film that currently tops the Netflix ratings in several countries, including the UK, falls into the former category.

Interceptor premiered on June 3 and is about an army captain (played by Elsa Pataky) trying to prevent a missile attack on the US.

Despite its rise to the top of Netflix’s ratings, the film has been met with poor reviews, earning a critics score of 44 percent on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. In terms of audience reviews, it fares even worse, with a score of just 26 percent.

On social media, viewers have been sharing their thoughts on the film, with many condemning it as “one of the worst on Netflix.”

“If you have an hour and 40 minutes of your life that you never want to get back, look at Interceptor on Netflix, it’s pure crap,” one person wrote.

“If you are looking for a movie to watch on Netflix, you should avoid it at all costs. Interceptor. I repeat, don’t go there,” someone else warned.

Some others, however, were more positive about the film.
