Goofs

On the night of Rob's wedding, he and Bram intervene when Gordon's men are about to kill Riddon, the leader of the Mutates, and set him free. Later, after Gordon overthrows the Norm leader, Rob and Bram escape and soon run into a group of Mutates led by Riddon, who says he remembers them because they gave him his life "a few days ago". In fact, as the events and time line in the film make clear, only a few hours had passed since their first encounter earlier that same night. See more »

A Thought-Provoking Sci-Fi Morality Tale
22 March 2011 | by (Los Angeles, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A thought-provoking morality tale involving the dangers of atomic power, the thin veneer of civilization, and the pitting of good forces vs. bad ones. The apocalyptic glimpses of New York City in ruins (courtesy of matte painter Irving Block) and the quasi-Medieval/ancient Mediterranean costumes were definitely inspired by the science fiction pulp magazines of the 1940s, as well as the script. Acting fairly good, especially by Margaret Field (mother of Sally). The action moves swiftly, the sets are imaginative (especially the sewers where the Norms live and the tunnel that is beneath the river) and the film has a mood of haunting sadness that stays with one. A fairly expensive-looking production from producers Pollexfen, Wisberg, and Zugsmith, certainly costing more than Pollexfen and Wisberg's previous Sci-Fi classic, The Man from Planet X.
