For a low budget movie, the editing is pretty awesome.
5 February 2019 | by Phazed-101See all my reviews

I have to be honest, i'm a junky for low budget films in the schi-fi, post-apocalyptic and dystopian genres but I have to say, when they don't have the big names stars and a zillion dolars for CGI (which always helps) but I find that with a small "suspension of belief" I can usually look past the bigger flaws and hapily enjoy what's been made.

Yes, some of the actors suck (and blow!) especially the son who played such a vague charcter I didn't know if he was meant to be playing someone with a disability or not, but it was the editing that captured my notice.

Most small budget films don't have the abiltiy to shoot extended sequences in chronological daylight order due to time and budget constraints. But compared with the latest Transformers movie (that whole chapter at the farm when the feds arrive) and the daylight goes from early morning, to late afternon to midday sun all within a minute it was so confusing!

The editing in this film however, (despite the corny ending), somehow became the star of the show in a way I haven't noticed before with other low budget films.

If you're going to watch it for the first time, just keep that in the back of your mind and see if i'm right. I couldn't edit a movie if my life depended on it but, i'm pretty sure I can spot it when it's done right.

That's my 2 cents.
