You Should Be Compensated To Watch This Movie!!!
on March 26, 2013
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. 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.
I wouldn't, I couldn't let this movie break me. I'm not a quitter. I had to see the end, maybe there will be some kind of payoff???? Ummmmmm No. At 4:44 they show stupid youtube clips of the world and then you see the couple holding each other as it fades to black. WTF????????? The special effects were worse than a bad 70's movie. The camera angle during the movie was worse than horrendous.
You are wondering right now as you read this why after he wasted an hour and a half of torture is he wasting more time to write this review on such a horrible time spent???? Here's why......If this can save one person, just one person in this world from wasting their precious time on this movie, it would be worth it to me...... I can't believe this movie was made in 2012, I just can't believe it!
Some other thoughts this movie can be used for. Maybe you can bet someone to sit there and watch it by them-self for money??? While you listen to headphones of your favorite music. Another idea would be to show this movie over and over again in prisons. Maybe this will prevent future crimes and scare people straight, because they don't want to go back in prison!
