Dad, I've gone to the city. Please don't come for me. There's a curfew here. Just... just keep them safe. I'm sorry. I love you.

First of all, I have to say that I didn't expect this movie to be an Arnie action flick. I knew this was a different kind of movie and was ready for it. It's well photographed, cut, the soundtrack is good. Acting is good at times, but sadly it looks like Arnie gave the best performance here. It seems like this was his own personal decision and his time to shine. Other than that I don't really see him as a good casting decision for this movie. The movie is a bit slow, but I've seen a lot of slow movies in my time, so it's not that big of a deal. The biggest problem of this movie is that it doesn't really know where it's going. It really lacks a direction, seems somewhat random and all over the place. The only character you feel for is Arnies one, and he had received less screen time and actual dialogue than needed. It would've really been better if we'd have gotten some dialogue and character interactions instead of slow-mo shots of the sky. I love when movies express character emotions through acting and silent shots, but it still wasn't done good to make you feel for them. Not the worst movie I've seen in 2015, but it could've really been better. For example, Australian low budget apocalyptic "These Final Hours" (2013) delivered much more that I expected. And the concepts are somewhat similar.
