Storyline

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?

Goofs

While architectural and fashion styles, interior decorations, and overall look shown in the film are slick, futuristic, and very modern, the interior of delta-winged passenger plane looks very frumpy and very much from 1970s (no seatback "Information, Communication, Entertainment" screens, for instance).

Well made sci-fi. Well worth a watch.
27 May 2020 | by locoenglazySee all my reviews

After you get over the dubbing which is in no way bad just a little wierd with lip movement not matching this is surprisingly good. The English dubbing is actually very well done. I get hints of skyline, battle Los Angeles and maybe even falling skies. I won't spoil the plot but I will say its pretty good. Not being familiar with Russian movies I have no idea if there are stars in it, but the acting is perfectly acceptable. There are a few well placed special effects all of which were tastefully and professionally done. I went in with low expectations and enjoyed it. As in a previous comment maybe a bit more editing would have been nice because it's a bit long for 2 hours.
