Nina West: [narrating] You probably already know what happened. Then again, you might not. You might not even give a shit. But I'm gonna tell you anyway. We all went about our daily lives, oblivious to how bad things were in the world. And then they hit the reset button, erasing all of their problems along with hundreds of millions of lives. No one saw it coming. The end.

Don't read these nerds quoting Supergirl and Superman - it's a good flick
30 June 2018 | by petera00See all my reviews

For too long IMDB has fallen into the hands of nerds obessesed with the new CW DC comics bug... Or the genre hype that unfortunately horror has become. This movie is legit and extremely entertaining. I wouldn't compare this to the Purge at all, but more off Walter Hill's Warriors meets Mad Max. I have a problem with critics from IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes because these people wouldn't know the difference from Bergman, Truffaut to Fulci, Bava and Argento. They misquote every genre film now and expect it to be something that it isn't. Honestly don't go into this picture thinking it's like this years hit Hereditary - because it's not. It's pure entertainment and not some bloated indie crap that they're trying to elevate as elevated horror. Honestly this has more off a grindhouse sploitation feel to it. So stop listening to these nerds belittling it and saying it doesn't make any sense... Go into it with the fresh approach that it's just fun and entertaining... Because that's what film's and especially genre films should be... FUN. And this my friends is one of the better films that doesn't care about social crap that''s come out this year.
