No meteorites hit Earth, no terrorists put the world in danger, no atomic war was started, but something did go wrong. Contact between most towns on Earth has been severed. A small ring-like area in Eastern Europe still has electricity, and maybe even life is being reported from the Space. What military forces find outside the Ring is shocking. There are dead corpses everywhere: in stores, in cars, on roads, in hospitals and railway stations. Who or what is destroying all life on Earth? How long will the last outpost of mankind survive?

Very good
23 November 2019 | by WillSmith_74See all my reviews

Just watched the new Russian fantastic cinema - Blackout. Despite the fact that the very phrase today sounds almost like a curse, the film is surprisingly good. Declared as Thriller and indeed holds in tensions all 2.5 hours. The visual part is just great, a lot of modern CG graphics and combined shooting. It can be seen that when creating the authors focused on the visual series of the last "Blade Runner 2049" and "Aliens". If you like movies like this, you will love The plot is very dark and bloody, without any compromises, just the way we like. A lot of shooting and fighting with the participation of technology, separately pleased automatic robot mules like Boston Dynamics. The only drawback is the duration. The whole story could be told more briefly, omitting some details. And still the world Outpost a bit reminded different a series of books of russian fantastic author Vadim Panov "Enclaves", there, too, there is strange create demigods, living among people thousands of years and shearing their, as if sheep. In General, it turned out a kind of cocktail of Running, Strangers and books of Panov. I liked the movie, could even go to the second part. It is a pity that now the assessment of the film on KP-6.3, most likely it will not allow him to collect a good box office. On IMDB 7.3, oddly enough, this is closer to the truth. PS: separately I forgot to praise the sound and musical component. Also surprising - but performed quite on a level, this is evident in the extended trailer, where the composition of Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park, which he allegedly recorded specifically for the film, sounds.
