In the beginning when James is driving, there is a radio announcement made with the speaker stating that his call sign VK which belongs to Australia (the range of VHA-VNZ). This is an amateur radio call sign which means he shouldn't broadcast on AM band but he could, with proper equipment, since it's end of the world. The call sign of VK6DF actually exists and belongs to someone. See more »

Hey, life is stronger than death, James.

There is no music during the end credits, only a constant low rumble reminiscent of the oncoming fireball. See more »
Very entertaining and edgy. Good character development and plausible plot line. Set in Western Australia - amusing - in that in the 60s and 70s Perth people used to boast that it was a great city in which to live because if the world was coming to end it would get to Perth 10 years later! Great build up through the film and a thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking experience. Acting by Angourie Rice and Nathan Phillips was very polished. Great movie- would recommend. Have seen a few other end of the world movies but These Final Hours makes you think about what would your priorities be? Zak Hildich as writer director has created what I believe will be a significant contribution to Australian Cinema.
