An very ambitious end of the world flick.....
8 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An ambitious, suspenseful, taut, apocalyptic/thriller that was quite an refreshing take on the genre. The performances were all strong and the story ingenious which will keep you on the edge of your seat especially towards the end and the effects and filming were subtle but haunting, so if you were thinking it was going to be an action packed disaster flick think again because it's deeper and darker than that. The pace could of been a little faster but I like how it had a nice little build up to the shocking, haunting and sad end. Overall I really appreciated this little gem that has a great story and plot behind it that has a lot of potential of being a great remake because it could be improved upon. Recommended even though it's quite depressing but what a movie! More of a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
