The post apocalyse--again.
25 March 2018 | by nigel-18854See all my reviews

The big problem with this flic is that it raises expectations of an action orientated narrative in the first act but then it doesn't just leave this element unresolved, the plot reverts to a Raft of the Medusa scenario. What we're left with is Five Go Loopy in the Basement (yeah I know there are eight). You know the kind of thing: there's no or little food, a couple of the guys start to go knutz blah, blah, et cetera, et cetera.

Quite why people get the notion into their head that another, look at the monkeys degenerate into barbarism as they struggle to survive isolated from civilization, plot is a scintillating prospect for an original script is baffling in the extreme but there you go, it happens and with depressing regularity. Having thoroughly stuck the boot in, I must say that the performances are pretty good in this flic which is something of a consolation at least.
