[first lines]
Michael:It is not enough to know that the world has ended. For there is more to the story. And soon it begins. Chaos drove us from the cities. Fear kept us away. Long after the bombs had fallen, after plagues and famine had run their course, we few that remain line in fear, and without hope. But this is a new place. A new time. Lost. Soon a time will come when we no longer live in caves. Like moles. Like rats.

Slow paced, boring, and scored with horrible music, 14 May 2013
Author: Matt Kracht ( from New York

The plot: A DJ, a pregnant woman, and some others try to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.

I don't know. I tried to give this film a chance. I saw all the negative reviews, and I thought to myself, "Maybe I'll like it. I don't mind slow pacing or low budgets, and I often like existential dramas." However, this was just too much to take. For vast stretches of time, nothing happens, except people talking cryptically about stuff I really didn't care about. The music really annoyed me, but I figured they would move on from playing this horrible country music, eventually -- but, no, it just kept going on and on. I glanced at my screen and saw there was still another 30 minutes left. I admit it. I bailed. I couldn't take it any more. No more pointless dialogue about mystical crap, detestable music, or boring characters.

The plot is a ripoff of Children of Men, the actors are from TV shows, and the music will annoy anyone under 60. I really don't know who this film was made for, but it wasn't made for people like me. I guess it's meant to be an uplifting story about plucky survivors and their metaphysical journey to rediscover America, which has been blah blah blah. Who cares? I sure don't. It takes the worst of New Age hippies and low budget, B movies, throws them together, and mixes in a bunch of country music. Ugh. Truthfully, I would have preferred yet another mindless ripoff of Mad Max than this.
