It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine . . .
13 December 2000 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

This film has all the hallmarks of an early nineties indie movie. Small cast (four people). Single locale (the Sydney Opera house). Single plot thrust (the end of the world). But look at the date. 1984. So when John Hughes was messing about with teen - movies and the USA thought Tootsie was one of the greatest films of all time, Oz had greater concerns. Almost creating its own genre - the pre-apocalyptic movie - this film deftly shows what would actually happen in case of such an emergency. Nothing much. People would still go on dates. They'd probably hang out. Some sex might go on. Then everyone might die. What's so lovely about this film, is that they are real people. You can't really tell them apart. They don't have stereotypes. In fact only the navy officer really stands out. We like them because they are like us. If I was in that situation, I'd probably go a bit stir crazy. If you happen to see this film around, do go see - if nothing else you get to see what the Sydney Opera House looks like at night when everyone's gone home . . .
