Customer Reviews

Horrible plot, dialogue, and acting.
Andrea Peterson
The concept of this movie could have reached greater heights if they wouldn't have taken a soap opera tangent.
T. W. Sandberg
Not a terrible movie, it's just marketed completely wrong.

Not a terrible movie, it's just marketed completely wrong. The actors all deliver very strong performances that make you identify with them or despise them as intended. My problem with this movie was that the trailer and the product description tricked me into thinking that the movie would be more about societal collapse and the struggle for survival, while this theme turned out to be more of a minor road bump for the main characters. This movie was more about old college buddies that retreat to a house in the country and then smoke a bunch of weed and drink a lot of booze while they confess their mistakes and character flaws about each other and bring to light old crushes etc. So, I was led to believe this would be an adventure/apocalypse film and was instead tricked into watching a chick flick.

This isn't a great movie. It is actually more of an excuse to insert as much drama as possible with the main idea of the movie resting on the back burner. The acting isn't so bad. The lines aren't horrible. It will be hard to resist the thought of kicking a field goal through the gap in Laura's teeth. The end will make you feel like you wasted a couple of hours of your life for nothing. The concept of this movie could have reached greater heights if they wouldn't have taken a soap opera tangent. It almost seems like a romance-comedy actually. Save your money and wait for this to hit prime if at all.

Great misleading synopsis. Bad low budget movie! This is more a love story than an adventure/action movie. The cover page where the "hero" was holding a rifle while witnessing chaos didn't even really happen anywhere in the movie. Can't take back my wasted evening.

First things first I must concur, with the Stephanie review - that the front cover of the DVD belongs to a completely different film - because it certainly has nothing to do with the movie I watched. For those that remember the 80s or see reruns on cable, there used be social drama called '30 Something', and for me this best sums the fusion between this film and the Apocalypse. This is American post-apocalyptic film telling the story of a couple who raise their daughter while living off the grid, until a disaster brings about radical changes in the life they have been living and the way they will view their friends. A film that is made up of series of vignettes as a group of friends intermingle and loosely try to figure out who may have caused the break down through a computer virus. Then add into the mix a biker gang and National Guard soldiers - both of which play out their stereo types.

This is indie film with some rather good actors, but the story and the narrative seem to be out of phase with the premise of the movie. As an example - who would discuss property values in the middle of world melt down? The DVD cover is really poor thinking on the part of the marketing company that were given the job to put out the DVD, and is misleading at best. Thus overall this movie is OK at best.

Perhaps the people that like this film are those that have not given any thought to what life would be like when the grid crashes and the s^*% hits the fan. . . totally unrealistic. The characters in this film would not last as long as they did. Ho-Hum the world is ending and armed soldiers are coming for our food supply . . . I want a divorce and I am taking my big pink teddy bear back.

Not an ounce of panic that the country had entered into martial law. A small OMG and then back to the beer and pot, and Hey! Let's have a lame talent show. Poor writing, poor directing, self indulgent acting. I don't want to say more for concern that it may send some rushing to view this as if it were a sharknado type of movie . . .but it's not. The people involved in this were actually taking themselves seriously.

Hours lost = 1 1/2

WOW! i don't know how some people can call this movie anything but awful! i've watched a lot of "end of the world" type movies and this one is by far the worst! The Big Chill meets Book of Eli! I love the "i don't have to have guns" to survive, i'll just tell folks to leave me and mine alone...ya! that'll work...LOL! i'll say it has to be the first PC movie on end times i've ever seen! DON'T WAISTE YOUR $$$ OR TIME ON IT!!!

Everything about this film was terrible - acting, casting, scriptwriting, sets, etc. Very heavily-messaged and preachy. Total waste of time.

Disappointing. Interesting initial premise goes nowhere. The cast of twenty-something unknowns are unable to inject any spark of life into bland, cardboard characters and a lame, plotless script that never steps up to the supposed Big Theme of the film.

Offscreen global apocalypse/societal collapse fizzles into a slacker slumber party at Grandma's weekend cabin.

Just barely OK for a free Prime streaming as background noise. Don't even think about buying it, or paying to rent it. It's rated at 1 Star on Netflix. Yawn.

Had to debate with myself whether anything in it merited even 2 Stars. Even the box cover art is deceptive: the film has no copters, no burning skyline, and the prepper male lead is terrified of firearms.

OK, so I've just saved you a few bucks and two hours of your life that you can now spend better elsewhere.

Hope this was helpful. Happy trails, everybody.
