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.Read more ›
I am not a huge fan of Greg Grunberg and his bombastic approach to comedy. I don't know who Neil Grayston is but I liked him marginally better than his blowhard boss/soul mate from the video store (do video stores still exist?). Sadly, there wasn't nearly enough scenes featuring the only actor of note in this movie, Brad Dourif. But. The premise was of sufficient interest. Most of the other actors were acceptable. The greatest obstacle was the inconsistency in tone. Was this a comedy or not? Why did most of the other actors approach the movie in a serious fashion? (Nothing says belly laugh like a lunatic threatening to shoot someone's mother in the face.)
I liked everything in this movie that didn't feature Grunberg.
