On October 30, 2009 an independent filmmaker and his cast and crew are reported missing a month before the release of their controversial film predicting the end of the world. Authorities have reason to believe the film's 2012 doomsday scenario may have something to do with their disappearance. An agent for CEA (Central Extraterrestrial Agency) discovers the footage to the film and watches the film on September 10, 2012, three months before the world is to come to an end. The film is reported to star actors Brian Neil Hoff (Automaton), Shy Pilgreen (Echo 6), and Xu Razer (Fragments.) Here is the synopsis to the mystery film. In 2012 a devastating war between humans and aliens left the earth a nuclear wasteland. 200 years later the descendants of both civilizations have returned in search of treasure and lost artifacts. After landing their ship on the abandoned planet, three galactic thieves, Kaynin, Rune, and Archer descend into an underground city. Soon a series of mechanical ... Written by R. Christian Anderson

Absolute garbage
29 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Only watch this movie if you have absolutely no standards at all. Actually, not even then. Hands down the worst movie ever!!! I seriously don't care how small the budget was. The plot was dumb, the actors were horrible, and what's with the CGI helmet on that "alien thing"?? Normally I would just laug hbut, for some reason this movie just made me angry!.How about changing the set a little huh? shoot the entire movie in an abandoned shopping mall? I seriously can't believe how awful this movie is. The main character??? I don't even have the time to go there. DO NOT WATCH!! I am sorry to be so negative but, I took it as an insult that someone would actually make such a piece of garbage and try to get people to waste their time watching it. Yikes!!!!
