Trivia

The "abandoned missile base" in the movie, is actually the Alabama Space and Rocket Center museum, and the "Rocket Park" is in the backlot of the museum. The museum benefitted from the filming of this movie, because the display rockets had to be "aged" for the film, and then later cleaned. The bi-annually cleaning of these outdoor displays is a major expense. See more »

Not bad at all
21 April 2016 | by dmdbSee all my reviews

I only write reviews of movies with low rating, which actually are not that bad. Give them a chance!

I don't know why this film has such a low rating ( 4.6 at the this moment ) when it is actually really cool. Good story, acting, costumes, environment design, good presentation of post-apocalyptic world. I love movies about apocalypse and post-apocalypse and that's why I wanted to see this one at first place. I don't regret it at all! I enjoyed it and you probably will to if you like these kind of movies. Maybe the story is slow and becomes boring in few places, but that is not a reason to have 4.6 rating.

6/10
