Storyline

When the last day of school comes for a group of students in a philosophy class, their instructor, Mr. Zimit, challenges them to different sorts of exercises that take place in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world. While there, they each get chosen professions and have to decide whether who is valuable or not because the bunker they will be staying in for a year has only enough oxygen for 10 people. Mr. Zimit challenges them in different rounds to see how they could survive. Issues arise when they notice Mr. Zimit is disruptive to the game. Written by James Hake

i am speechless
22 January 2014 | by (Wyoming, USA) – See all my reviews

i had high hopes for this one and the first 15 minutes were pretty cool and from that on it turned more and more into the most illogical, pretentious, ridiculous crapfest i have ever witnessed. at half the film all i wanted was for it to be over and the only reason i watched it until the end was, because i wanted to know how they would conclude it, but that was a pretty dumb move from my side, because it just turned weirder and dumber and even more silly. afterwards i wished i would have just ended it at the half into movie mark and forgot about it, because the conclusion turned out to be even more silly. the basic idea for the story was great, but thy could not make anything worse out of it than this. terrible. insanely terrible.
