Editorial Reviews

When electro-magnetic blasts begin to bombard Earth, only two men may be fully prepared for the coming apocalypse: A video store owner (Greg Grunberg of Heroes) and his film nerd pal (Neil Grayston of Eureka). But as anarchy, humongous dust storms and mom-incinerating meteors devastate the planet, can a pair of disaster-movie fanboys, their hero an institutionalized science fiction writer (Academy Award® nominee Brad Dourif of THE LORD OF THE RINGS) and a nuclear warhead be our last hope to save the world? Caroline Cave (The L Word) and Mark Hildreth (V) co-star in the new Syfy Original classic that SciFiVision.com calls the ultimate disaster movie to end all disaster movies!

3.0 out of 5 stars I guess it was ok. April 22, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I almost abandoned this movie like 20 minutes in. I still don't know if sitting through it was the best use of my time. It tried to be a sci-fi contemporary to Shaun of the Dead. A quasi-comedic parody of a genre that's hardly taken seriously. Even some of the characters were the same: the romantically clueless protagonist, his sidekick who is a lesser form of the protagonist, the mom, the guy who falls early on. Etc. Except this was not nearly as well done as Shaun of the Dead. Not nearly. In fact, if it weren't for the cast, this would've been a complete waste of time. As it were, it turned out to be a solid 3-stars. I enjoyed the comedic gimmick that these guys were experts in apocalypse movies, and that the knowledge helped them, allowing for meta references to some great/horrific flicks in the genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mildly funny, but more lame April 16, 2014
By BruceK
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I like the trailer of this movie more than the movie. Totally unbelievable silly nonsense with no real redeeming point to it ... not funny enough to be a comedy, not clever enough to be sci-fi ... by the end I was pretty tired of it and ready to quit, stuck it out to the bitter end.

4.0 out of 5 stars "The End of the World" is coming to your home April 17, 2014
Format:DVD
I don't know why, but for some reason I've been going through a disaster movie phase this past month. It started out with "Airport '77" and escalated quickly through the 1970s to the 1990s and beyond. I hit as many of the sub-genres along the way as I could by watching "The Towering Inferno," "Meteor," "Daylight," "Sharknado" and more. Needless to say, it wasn't hard for me to get into the zone when I received Anchor Bay Entertainment and SyFy Channel's "End of the World."

A video store owner (Greg Grunberg) and his film geek buddy (Neil Graston) find they're the key to saving the world when an electrically-fueled storm of dust and lightning bursts pound the Earth. The two unlikely heroes use their previously useless knowledge of disaster film scenarios to discover a way to save the planet from certain doom. At the same time, they must lead a group of friends to safety while fighting their way through gangs of survivors trying to steal their van and supplies for themselves.

The back of the DVD cover has a quote stating, "The best film that I've ever seen on SyFy!" I would have to side with Through the Shattered Lens' Lisa Bowman that "End of the World" is one of the better straight-to-cable movies my eyes have gazed upon. The story really isn't anything new, but is made tolerable through characters that are both likable and easy to hate depending on what their specific role in the movie demands of them.

The casting director for "End of the World" kept their end of the bargain by packing the movie full of familiar genre faces for various audiences to grab on to. Greg Grunberg ("Heroes") and Neil Grayston ("Eureka") play the leads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Low budget and original campy sci-fi April 20, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Best of the campy genre--plenty of self-parody, original plot twists, and perfectly appropriate and spirited acting. Great fun for the sci-fi movie fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars B+ for this B post apocalyptic film July 20, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
End of the World self-consciously applies a large number of tropes to the film while quoting funny lines from various films, using knowledge of classic sci-fi and post apocalyptic films to find solutions to save their lives and, with a few not quite obvious plot twists, manage to save the world.
And the head geek gets the girl. Of course.
"End of the World" is self-aware of its plot and genre and makes fun of it, creating a funny end of the world movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't worth the money. June 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Not a bad premise, it could have been really good, but not even the most simple details were even remotely plausible. I mean seriously, Sharknado had more credibility than the stupidity they used to write this movie. What a waste of money and brain cells numbed by watching it!

4.0 out of 5 stars a hoot April 2, 2014
By Janet
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This was fun, purposely cheesy. They're on the right track-we can learn a lot about how to survive a real-life disaster by remembering what we saw in disaster flicks. Brad Dourif has made a career of playing smart guy-but-crazy, and he's an expert at it.
