There seems to be little logic behind the movies and TV shows that dominate Netflix’s Top 10 rankings.
Sometimes it’ll be the streaming service’s last original offering — other times it’s an arbitrary forgotten thriller from over a decade ago.
Interceptorthe film currently at the top of the Netflix chart in a number of countries, including the UK, falls into the first category.
Released on June 3, Interceptor follows an army captain (played by Elsa Pataky) who tries to avoid a missile attack on the United States.
Despite rising to the top of Netflix’s charts, the film received poor reviews, earning a score of 44% on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. In terms of audience reviews, the results are even worse, at just 26%.
On social media, viewers shared their thoughts on the film, with many condemning it as “one of Netflix’s worst”.
“If you have an hour 40 minutes of your life that you never want to come back from, watch Interceptor on Netflix this is pure crap,” one person wrote.
“Interceptor was by far one of the worst movies I’ve seen on Netflix. Wow,” another unimpressed viewer wrote.
“If you’re looking for a movie to watch on Netflix, Interceptor should be avoided at all costs. I repeat, don’t go,” someone else warned.

Some others, however, were more positive about the film.
“Okay…that Interceptor The movie is one of the best I’ve seen on Netflix,” one person said.
“#Interceptor on #Netflix is a chilling action movie. It has a tough-as-nails female head that stops a band of American terrorists from destroying the last interceptor base to enable nuclear strikes on American soil. The guys regulars give this movie shit. Don’t listen to them,” another wrote.
The interceptor is available to stream now on Netflix.
