In the new genre of low budget Sci if, this is a thoughtful, soulful entry
Initially we were looking for a mindless film to zone out on. When we realized it was using multiple timelines, we were prepared to be irritated, but it was still easy to follow, because the jumps correspond to memories and realizations or show simultaneous events that then blend through the use of cell phones. Coincidentally, we saw it the night before the Las Vegas shootings, and it served as a kind of prep for the issue of the relative horrors of dieing alone or dieing with everyone else, flight to safety, risking youself to help someone else. This is an almost boringly naturalistic film that is very focused on the nature of marital relationships and the fear of death, which seems to have disappointed a lot of people. It breaks a number of conventional rules of the genre with realism. If you want to watch a film that makes you think you could easily survive an alien invasion and it would be fun, watch something else.
