Trivia

The title "Quantum Apocalypse" was the result of a joke: Writer Leigh Scott had an e-mail conversation with Dread Central reviewer Scott "The Foywonder" Foy (a frequent harsh critic of Sci-Fi Channel Original Films) about the Channel rejecting the previous title "Judgment Day". Foy remarked the reason that the title was rejected was that it didn't have a colon like many other Sci-Fi Channel films (such as "Caved In: Prehistoric Terror" and "Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep") and jokingly suggested the title "Judgment Day: Quantum Apocalypse". Scott liked the title "Quantum Apocalypse" and asked for permission to suggest it to the Sci-Fi Channel which approved it. See more »

Some early faults, but it's just a $2million TV movie. Plenty of good points.
27 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A lot of folks are trashing this movie without understanding the context.

a. It's a TV movie b. Budget was an estimated $2.5million With that in mind, I'd like to review this one in a more technical sense for the film students out there, and highlight where I think it was good.

First, some obvious faults.

Some of the special effects are lame, other acceptable. The lame ones should have been seen as such and cut.

There are some sound problems which hint at them having lost on-set sound and having to resort to the audio recorded by the camera. Folks, there is a thing called dubbing. Or at least try to equalise the camera audio.

The casting of Peter Jurasik as the President was insane beyond words. Not because of his acting at all, but he simply does not look the part. Just look at the bit part actors surrounding him, they look the part, he stands out like a sore thumb.

The casting of Gigi Edgley as one of the 'rock-star scientists' was good, and after a very worrying start, she gets into the role and makes good of it. However, simply having a dash of green in your hair and wearing a tie around your neck when wearing a normal dress does not make you a 'rock-star scientist'. It makes the wardrobe and makeup dept look crap.

That's me done with the negatives. Let's review the brighter side...

Other IMDb sections claim this was filmed using a sub $2,000 Panasonic AG-HVX200 HD video camera. Well, I think the result is superb.

Throughout this film, the cinematography is first rate. Lots of very nice camera moves, including several closeups that turn into running tracking shots. Framing and lighting is always good.

The plot may have some holes, but hey, it's a TV movie, so don't take it so seriously.

Lots of location filming, which must have eaten into the budget. This helps keep away from the TV movie format, and keeps the thing moving.

On balance, some big minuses, but for a TV film, very well technically executed on the whole.

Epilogue....

About the bad acting. The director, Justin Jones, was not inexperienced. But as Second Unit Director or Assistant Director (57 titles), he perhaps did not have enough experience of spotting and correcting over acting.

That error mainly occurs in the first half of the film, along with most of the other 'faults'.

Conclusion: As a TV film, very well made, and watchable in my view. At no point does it fall apart, although it makes you start to cringe a little early on. I've seen a couple of worse Big Budget films costing far far more.
