Lacking in a lot of areas but has its moments
31 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Eve of Destruction does have its redeeming values, and it is definitely better than Ring of Fire that had nothing to recommend it apart from Terry O'Quinn. The setting in Eve of Destruction has a good austere atmosphere, and while not mind-blowing the photography is hardly what you call amateurish. The acting from the four leads is also better than average, Steven Weber is good as the father figure, Christine Cox does sympathetic believably, Treat Williams makes for a great slime-ball and Aleks Paunovic has a moody and sullen sort of character and he pulls it off nicely. The special effects do stick out like a sore thumb though, while the rest of the production values saw some decent effort put into it the special effects look like a rushed last-minute job. The music is not very memorable, has a tendency to plod and it is unimaginative. It wouldn't have mattered if the characters were clichés, what matters more is making them interesting and despite the commendable lead acting the characters are not developed enough. The secondary roles weren't as involving as the lead roles, they generally lacked personality and were bland as a result. The script is repetitive and resorts too much in random and overwrought melodrama, while the story has a decent concept that is executed with a lack of thrills and tension generally that gets increasingly dull, illogical and cheesy in the second half(Eve of Destruction is a little better paced than Ring of Fire this said, and is not as exposition-heavy). Overall, was lacking and is not that great but could have been much worse. 4/10 Bethany Cox
