Having been away the young couple does not realize a worldwide catastophe has struck. They are stuck in the middle of nowhwere and must now fend for their lives. They sleep at a nearby abandoned motel where a manipulative manager swindles them out of their last dollars. The crisis only worsens when a robbery takes place and they must flee on foot.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Title Does Say It All August 12, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The movie starts with an insecure slacker asking hypothetically (on a camping trip), what would his rich girlfriend say if he asked her to marry him. She remains silent and emotional. The remaining 80 minutes or so plods along,mostly focusing on how they react in a crisis. Umm..after 10 minutes you want to scream and tell the pretty girl "Just Say NO". The man-boy pretty much offers more and proof as to why "NO" should be the answer.

The sci-fi disaster film motif is totally a vehicle to dissect this ill-fated relationship. It is "watchable" especially as a free movie on Amazon Prime.

The Swiss film (from the 1970's) LE RETOUR D'AFRIQUE (RETURN FROM AFRICA) by Alain Tanner is funnier, and more satisfying. "Empty" isn't shallow, the characters are developed well enough, however it could have been subtitled "10 Days at the End of the World, with a guy my Dad said was worthless" Daddy's right this one time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Number 1! September 27, 2011
By JEA
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
That's right... this movie just secured the number 1 spot on my list of the worst movies I've ever seen. It would be safe to say that it made the top spot on my son's list, too. I'm sorry this is so harsh, but it's just not a good movie. The acting wasn't good, the soundtrack was very (very) repetitive, the story line was bad and the boyfriend character was a complete d*uche. If he didn't prove it by his actions throughout the entire movie, then he definitely proved it at the ending. And even mentioning 'The Road' or 'The Happening' on the cover in any other context than something like: "Some people involved in this movie once saw the movies 'The Road' and 'The Happening'" is completely misleading. Speaking of the cover, that scene as shown never happens. You do see the clip from which the two main characters as shown are pulled from, but they're not walking through an ashy wasteland... just down a deserted, snow-covered road, with no cars in sight.

I love the PA genre and like to support indie films when I can, but I can't recommend this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Schoolhouse Clunker Of A Student Film January 28, 2012
By MadMacs
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I tried to like this - I really did. But the overdrawn and plodding script, shallow acting and moronic characterization marks this as a student film.

It has an interesting premise and I'd love for this filmmaker to come back to this project in 10 years with more experience under his belt - really think it would be fascinating. That, or a better production company reboots the entire project with better actors, a tighter script and logic-based storytelling. There's a nugget of a coal that I believe can be turned into a fire, eventually leading to a really good movie.

But this schoolhouse clunker with its incomprehensible pathetic ending ain't it.

You can always spot a very young filmmaker: Somehow incorporating death brings "maturity" to their efforts. I've read many first-time storytellers/creators and invariably they use death as a flourish to their efforts; a stretch for cleverness with no real sense of what they're attempting. After a while it's actually quite amusing. As you read their very predictable fare - you just know they're trying desperately to do a M. Night Shyamalan: To get a 'gasp', an 'oh', or 'I didn't see that coming' out of you.

Personal Note: Could they find a more skeezy weirdo in Barry McBrien's portrayal of the hotel manager? Talk about a miscast. Yikes.

***spoilers*** Well, as usual, any high ratings for this are probably from the cast and crew. This movie was a waste of time, and the actor who portrayed the boyfriend..OMG!!!! ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE...HIS FATHER MUST HAVE FINANCED THIS PIECE OF CRAP MOVIE...Here, I'll save you the pain of watching this...Good concept (Gas crisis-societal collapse), but poorly executed in all categories of cinematographic art.. Boyfriend goes nuts in the end and kills everybody. It's done off screen, but you can assume he shot some good Samaritans and his spoiled girlfriend...THE END. Oh and as for my tagline, there's a scene with two robbers, I wished these guys would have killed the couple then and there, because the movie continues for another 25 minutes....

1.0 out of 5 stars Empty - Both name and content of the movie August 11, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Let me start by saying "I love a good catastropy/end of civilization movie." This is not one. The basis of the movie is that there is suddenly no gas anywhere. No explanation is given at all - not even any conjecture. Any good catastrophe flick needs some remotely plausible reason for the crisis. Unfortunately, fixing this would not fix the movie. The main characters where inconsistent in their personalities (reactions to situations). They were not flushed out well and remained two dimensional instead of drawing you into the movie. Thoughout the film I kept looking for some explaination of events, actions, reactions - there was none.

I watch movies while I treadmill. I set my standards fairly low as I just like something to occupy the hour plus I spend exercising. The only reason I watched this all the way through was I stubbornly kept hoping that it would get better and provide answers to any of the questions the movie raised. Not one was answered. I won't give away the ending but to say it was bad is an understatement. It felt as if they ran out of time (it was too long as it was) and just found away to end it and fade to black.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not waste your time
Why would any of the creators of this film think that they had made a movie? Fans of PA genre, please don't pay to watch this. Buy an extra freeze-dried meal instead.
