Did You Know?

Trivia

As the taxi pulls away from the hotel at the start of the second scenario, a movie theatre can be seen across the road with the sign over the entrance reading "Now Showing Groundhog Day" an obvious reference between the similarities to the storyline of Groundhog Day (1993) and the docudrama's filming style.

Goofs

In the "particle accelerator" story, the lead character supposedly leaves a terminal at JFK and catches a taxi. However the sign reading "North Terminal" - i.e. Gatwick Airport - is still visible. See more »

Works both as docudrama and as scifi
2 May 2013 | by (Prague) – See all my reviews

There are five possible endings and two levels of the movie.

The first level is science fiction, ie. fiction based on science. Scientists do comment the different possible scenarios: Super tsunami, super eruption, meteor collision, virus outbreak and strangelet creation. Most of these happenings do not lead to the end of the world, some of them are displayed actually in very mild manner (like the meteoric impact which would be way way more devastating that displayed). But never worry, it is worthy of your time anyway.

The second level is pure scifi, ie. story about the man who wakes every day to experience another end of the world. The parallel stories are actually very well connected and it is extremely enjoyable. You can even see these little details like references to dinosaurs in meteorite plot. I would say this was done better that many "real" scifi movies. It worked for me, I really enjoyed it several times. I could watch another set of scenarios, maybe even darker ones.

Way to go, BBC, great work!
