Great!
22 July 2013 | by Alex VojacekSee all my reviews

Oh man, why so short !

This movie is incredible. Believe me, you can forgive some of the performances, you can forgive little nuances and then you can enjoy an incredible well directed end of the world.

The rift tells a story about a young guy helping a "scientist" scan anomalies in the satellite system.

The first few minutes are very well spend introducing the characters, no more than it is needed and then the catastrophe.

The scenery is very good, the special effects are incredible considering the budget and the way the movie is handled is incredible for such a short movie.

Only 25 minutes of your life you WILL remember, yes we all had seen this before but, somehow this is worth watching it.

Although the movie ends in the mother of all cliffhangers you will appreciate what it's been done here, wish more movies were built like this.

No 1 hour 30 minutes of cheesy dialog, just 25 minutes of focused end of the world, yeah baby!

Go see it, you wont regret it although you will want Rift 2.
