Storyline

A military expedition in Siberia gone wrong. The existence of humanity is in peril as Inanna, Sumerian goddess of lust and war has summoned a giant meteor to destroy the planet, after being accidentally set free from her ancient prison. The government has been overturned in a Communist take-over and the citizens of the world; brainwashed. In humanity's darkest hour, the ancient entity of Gilgamesh, older than the cosmos themselves, must decide whether or not to serve of mankind's final hope. Meanwhile, Inanna has hand selected the one man; married man and archaeologist, David Murphy, to live out the rest of eternity with her. Gilgamesh and Inanna are quickly targeted by the new government as potential weapons of mass destruction, and soon the apocalypse has begun. Written by Richard Chandler

Goofs

When the prison cell door is opened, Col. Meyers raises his eyes from the cell floor to see the US Army C.O. coming into his cell. But when the scene cuts to a different angle from inside the cell, Col. Meyer's eyes are still gazing at the floor when the C.O. walks into the cell. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Lars: She foresees our future. She requires the maximum amount of suffering for the human race. And one hot-as-fuck jungle night she emerged from the darkness before myself and Col. Meyers. Of course we had no rank back then. She promised us everlasting life. He didn't buy into any of that. But I did. And I accepted my life mission to bring forth that maximum amount of suffering. Quite frankly, I had thought she was the Lady of Fatima.

Indescribable
19 March 2017 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

Okay, I'll give GILGAMESH credit for being something other than a cheesy and predictable slasher, but this micro budget production is so awful and indescribable that it becomes virtually unwatchable after the first ten minutes or so. I appreciate the effort made to depict a snowbound Siberia in the film's opening sequences, but the plot then goes off on a tangent involving religion, politics, and various esoteric themes.

Unfortunately as with all indie productions this all amounts to a whole bunch of actors doing very little other than having philosophical conversations. It's patience-testing stuff for sure and the continuing refusal to make sense or deal with concrete themes and ideas makes it a real chore to sit through. There's little incident, a nonsensical story, no realism, and awful acting throughout. I hated it, I'm afraid.
