Goofs

(at around 46 mins) When John returns from the woods, he opens the driver side door of his truck. The window changes from open in the shot from outside the truck, to closed in the shot from inside. Then, when he drives off, the windows is open again. This was possibly done intentionally to avoid reflections of the camera crew, but it is still a continuity error. See more »

This is a sacrilege
5 February 2018 | by Thunder-StormSee all my reviews

This is an insult a sacrilege to the first one.If it didn't have the title''The man from earth" I would say that it is an average, not very well made,very forgetable but watchable movie.But since it has this title and pretents to be the continuation of the first movie I say this is an insult.That's all I have to say about this movie. PS. Nevertheless I donated money(mainly because the first one was a masterpiece)because I like the idea behind the honour system.
