Goofs

Shots of looters pushing a shopping cart laden with their haul down a street shows a shopfront with a London Underground logo on it, indicating this was stock news footage of the 2011 London rioting as opposed to the film's looting in America that took place after the blackout. See more »

Boring
2 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie sucks but I'm giving it two stars instead of one because the peach fighting scene was kind of funny. It pretends to be "realistic" and uses some real-life footage but it's hard to believe and just bad. I didn't care about any of the characters. I actually ended up loathing them and wanting them to get hurt. The ending was weak and had no explanation. It felt like the power being back would magically fix everything that went wrong, somehow. I feel like the only person who has seen this film and I hate myself for it. I feel bad for the actors in this. They deserve better. Right now I'm just doing this because IMDb is forcing me to write a longer review. My original review only had two lines and it was about the can of peach and the fight.
