Bored inside a social housing complex, somewhere in some east-Germany inner city , a group of unknown actors must band together to fight for another paycheck.
ATOMIC EDEN is a film that delivers exactly what is expected, nothing at all. It proudly displays it's digital home-video Z-movie roots on it's sleeve and takes off running. Even though the majority of "actors" are complete unknowns, there are a few familiar faces who will most certainly make some wonder "Didnt I see this guy somewhere?..Maybe yes". Unknown German martial arts star Mike Moller could easily bury any future career with this. His fight choreography is nothing short of actually not bad and at least helps to set screenshots from ATOMIC EDEN as a wallpaper. Even though his role is just a few frames and seconds, DTV regular Lorenzo Lamas reminds us just how desperate for a paycheck he truly is. If you're anything like me, then the presence of Fred "The Hammer" Williamson top-billed should be all you need to think twice before watching it. After spending years in doing cameos, Williamson is front and center and even well into his seventies, there's no question that you will start kicking yourself halfway through the movie for starting it.
The rest of the "cast" wouldn't be able to act their way out of an elevator. Each character on the team has no talents whatsoever which is fun watching when you are drunk. When they all work together, each person actually needs to be there and are an important part for you understanding how much time you already wasted. The unknown actors look embarrassed and most likely closed their FB pages long ago - and who wouldn't. Everett Ray Aponte, Dominik Starck, Josephine Hies, Nico Sentner (who also co-wrote and directed - on his smartphone), Wolfgang Riehm (who likes to get paid), and Hazuki Kato (starring in Muppets Most Wanted) give the picture personality and confusion. The film is cheap, face-palm-slap-inducing, and a damn poor idea of wasting time.
It can sometimes be easy for producers to hype their Z-movie by fake reviews for whatever reason. The fact is, B-movies are supposed to be fun while Z grade home-video films are supposed to steal your time & money. Nico Sentner's ATOMIC EDEN steals both and in spades. Get a lobotomy and have a good time with this joke of a new entry in the Z-Action film pantheon.
****** After reading the first "review" on here, couldn't resist to put some things into perspective. This is not a b-movie, its a z-movie, ultra low budget shot on really poor digital cameras. Williamson did some good b-movies before, and this Moller guy seems to be a good martial arts artist, but this whole movie is an insult to b-movie fans. I think its possible to make better movies on the latest iPhone these days.
