Light Sci-fi in its finest
16 March 2019 | by inveterateSee all my reviews

The modern audiences typically corral around big budget sci-fi. Trending lately, those movies guarantee impressive CGI but neglect plot and logic, culminating in shiny messes.

Last Sunrise, unencumbered by fashion, stands its ground on the new niche of good story telling and people-elements. As a non-spectacle, the film greatly simplified the apocalypse scenario down to a story of two initial strangers, much like Steve Carrell's 2012 (..Friend.. end of the world). The reduced complexity in progression actually greatly increased the believability. Maybe doomsday is not so noisy, hard and terrible. This is a movie that will not tire you out.

The closing of the film is well wrapped, so much so, it needed no elation; no princess saving, or rock explosions necessary. Last Sunrise, finished in the best way modest investments allow, dropping just enough pseudo science along the way for more advanced astro-calamity fans to nibble on.
