Lord of the flies for grown ups., 18 November 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This obviously low budget take on a familiar theme kept me interested throughout. The ending held no surprises, in fact I would have preferred to see a different outcome. None of the characters in the film are clear heroes, neither are any of them the clear bad guy, they all just kind of lose it. The lack of a hero to root for kind of makes the whole film a bit uncomfortable to watch, I didn't like any of the characters. Generally this film is not a terrible way to waste a bit of time, it leaves lots to the imagination so is a good topic of discussion. Many plot elements remain void of explanation e.g. who were the men in suits, who attacked America, where did this group of people come from? Quite cleverly, enough hints are provided to allow the imagination to fill in the blanks I found myself forming a back story of my own.
