waste of time
27 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I try to always look for the good things in movies but after wasting 2 hours of my life i simply had to warn others to please pick another movie.

i am a sci-fi fan and i have read a lot of post apocalypse stories but the sheer amount of scientific errors, goofs and illogical plot twists makes this one of the worst i've seen in my 35 years and trust me i've seen a lot.

The casting director did a great job and the excellent actors did their best to stay professional. The directing isn't bad but call me old fashioned, the story makes no sense at all.

I realize humanity will be at it's darkest after an attack but these people are portrayed as idiots . Things happen that never get explained nor followed through. Story arcs that stop halfway or go totally different ways without a single reason.

Granted i am not a big fan of art movies but this movie is so shallow there aren't even multiple levels you could try to work through.This ain't art,not even close.

At the very best you could call this a torture fantasy like Saw but without a plot whatsoever.

The people involved in this will not be putting this on their resume, thats for sure. I read on this page that the movie got canned and was continued with private money and all i can say is that the person funding this wasted a lot of cash, please do not make the same mistake.
