Catastrophe, however, is way ahead of schedule and the end of the world has been pinpointed with precision.
K. Harris
At this point I wonder if this was part of the movie or some random guy who just watched this movie in the audience and they shot it as it was happening lol.

The script was terrible, character development poor, acting okay and there were NO special effects for an end of war movie.

Hey everyone, this is the 1st time I ever wrote a review on Amazon. I was just compelled to write my opinion, because I've never seen a worse movie in my life!! No words can describe how awful this was!! But I will try to save anyone from this dreadful movie.

The 1st scene is a sex scene that reminded me of a soft porn movie which lasted way too long, especially since they are not an attractive couple at all. very hard to watch and it dragged on.

Most of the movie was boring conversations on Skype and they had Chinese food delivered. Lord knows why a restaurant would still be open and delivering food when the World is about to end. The delivery driver was was Asian, he sort of looked Indian and he asked to use the Skpe to call his family to say goodbye. Then why are you working with just hours left???????????? The conversation with his family was in a foreign language with no subtitles which is OK, because you sort of know what he is saying, but the conversation went on for so long. Why??? We don't know what he and they are saying, why make it soooooo long???? Soooo Boring it becomes painful to watch.

The girlfriend paints for 1/4 of the movie and it's so horrible and boring!!! Even more painful to watch. At this point you are drinking alcohol, lots of alcohol, because you've gone this far, so why not see the end which is the end of the world. That can't be boring to watch??? Right????..........

Anyway when the protagonist William Dafoe who does not connect at all in this movie with the audience (you could care less whether he lives or dies)....It's so damn boring. He goes outside his apartment and sees some guy jump off his balcony to an apparent suicide.

I am very open minded when it comes to movies in general and indie films. And I am a huge Willam Dafoe fan as he is a great actor, but this movie was a tragic waste of time, space and MONEY. I can't believe I paid $6.99 to watch this terrible movie! The script was terrible, character development poor, acting okay and there were NO special effects for an end of war movie. Throughout this film, I could not help that this was a political (global warming, save the planet) infomercial.

That said, save your time and money on this one...not worth watching!

What would you do on the eve of the planet's destruction? That is the question posited by Abel Ferrara's "4:44 Last Day On Earth." The answer, it would seem, is to live it much like any other. I'm a fan of Ferrara as a filmmaker, I find him refreshingly unpredictable. I'm not sure, however, that "4:44 Last Day On Earth" conveyed and/or made the most of its intriguing premise. While I appreciate that not every apocalyptic endeavor has to be big, bold, and melodramatic--at times this felt so underplayed as to be virtually non-existent. While the concept and images advertising the movie may make it seem like a thriller (the word suspenseful is used in the description), this is a slow burn contemplation in which not much happens. Luckily, Ferrera had the wherewithal to cast Willem Dafoe as his central protagonist. Dafoe, as usual, makes for interesting viewing. This seems like an incredibly personal work for Ferrera and the intimacy that Dafoe brings to his performance is never less than fascinating.

The inconvenient truth of the situation is that Al Gore and his contemporaries were correct about their dire environmental predictions. Catastrophe, however, is way ahead of schedule and the end of the world has been pinpointed with precision. How? Don't ask. Despite the fact that it is supposedly the last day on earth (not everyone believes it, even though news broadcasts have ended due to the imminent game changer), nothing seems too drastically different in Dafoe's neighborhood. Traffic and pedestrians seem normal, stores and bars are open, you can order Chinese food. There is never a real sense of doom. Most of the movie is spent in one apartment with Dafoe and his girlfriend (Shanyn Leigh) dancing, using Skype, painting, making love, or just hanging out independently.

A newscaster telling people to just be with their loved ones because it was all going to end - the scene is rather haunting in its own right. There is a sense of despair and giving up as everything is gone. That's a great moment but it's unearned. It's unearned because it is coming in the middle of a movie full of these non-action moments that are supposed to be haunting and mysterious but ultimately just prove dull and uninspired. Whether Willem Dafoe is going on the roof and yelling at people or they are ordering Chinese food, nothing is really happening in this things.

If these moments were part of an overall story, great. But they are simply scenes from boring people in a nice apartment sitting around and waiting for things to end.

Never has a movie depicted characters that are so in tune with the audience.

I find most apocalyptic films quite interesting. I also like watching Indie films. This one, however, is a real stinker. The world is ending due to the hole in the ozone - "like Al Gore predicted". This is mentioned over and over.

The opening love scene was drawn out for far too long and was completely boring. I know they were shooting for a romantic, this-is-the-end-of-the-world-let's-make-love scene....but it simply didn't work.

The sound of vehicles passing by thoughout the entire movie will have you looking out your window for unexpected visitors.

Apparently Skype is still around when the end of the world happens and everyone is using it.

The only believable "apocalyptic scene" is when a guy gives up and jumps off a balcony. The rest seems to be people doing normal daily stuff.
