As 'Anthony Dubrovsky' is driving away from the deserted plant, supposedly with no one around, there is someone moving in the background that he drives right by without stopping to check on it. See more »
Russian director Maxsim Dyachuk has taken a time honed construct in science fiction and created an important cautionary tale. Those who follow current events and witnessed the shocking video of a meteorite striking violently into Siberia will certainly see the prophetic aspects of this film. The deadly spores on the cinematic meteorite, however, are deadly and it is essential the world take notice of what happens in this incredible motion picture. The Siberian strike in recent years could easily have brought an apocalyptic presence to those who live in the isolated area of Russia and the terror would have been overwhelming. Perhaps we were very lucky or we may just might know yet. With skill and dramatic insight, Maxsim has envisioned what may well of happened if the merciless universe had chosen to destroy humanity. The all-too- possible scenario is expertly filmed and the ensemble cast is uniformly excellent. The Russian location of an abandoned factory is a perfect setting for the story to play out and Maxsim's technical genius with the camera makes for an environment both mesmerizing and horrific. The result is a film that is realistic, inspired, and a disturbing omen of what could easily be.
