Editorial Reviews

It was once the source of life, light and warmth. But now the sun has turned the entire world into baked and barren wasteland. Forests are scorched. Animal carcasses line the roads. Even the nights are dazzling bright. Marie, her little sister Leonie and Phillip are heading for the mountains in a car with covered windows. Rumor has it there is still water there. Along the way they run into Tom, a first-rate mechanic that becomes indispensible. But can they trust him? Tension grows in the small group. As if things weren´t bad enough, they are lured into an ambush. Their real battle for survival begins...

Hannah Herzsprung briefly running around in panties.
The Movie Guy
I liked the premise something a little different, but of course as in all "end of the world" movies there has to be cannibalism so that was predictable.
The scenes weren't lavishly done and the characters weren't fleshed out as much as they could have been, but they were more than believable.

With no opportunities to rent this film, besides iTunes, I decided to purchase the film on the strength of the trailer. These days I seem to be a good judge of what I will like based on a trailer.

Hell is a post-apocalyptic film set in the near future 2016. Solar flares have caused mass overheating of our planet laying waste to the environment. With no way to sustain plant or animal life and with natural water supplies all but gone; people will now do anything to survive.

Visually the movie sells the idea the earth is burnt out and desolate. The acting is good, albeit this american version defaults to an over-dubbed english soundtrack. I suggest watching it with subtitles.
For a film like this simplicity is important. All our characters need to do is survive. There are a few little twists and turns that keep it interesting.
Overall a fan of films like this will be more than entertained. And I'm happy to add this film to my collection.

The year is 2016. Solar activity has produced a hot bright sun (In German Hell is "bright.") There has been no crops for 3 years. Society has fallen apart and humans survive in bands seeking out food, water, and gas.

The plot involves three people, then four traveling down the road following the birds toward what may be water. At this point the production reminded me of "The Road" a rather boring scenario waiting for things to happen. They find themselves in a stew as the film becomes "Wrong Turn." They become captured by religious people who "have no livestock" but need to survive. The girls will make good wives.

The movie takes place in a gunless society. It is hard to fathom society has fallen that far in such a short period of time, but I just went with it. Fans of Nina's "99 Luft Balloons" will be happy to know her CD survives the apocalypse which BTW the title I bought this film under. The dual meaning of Hell=Bright doesn't translate and I guess "Bright" wouldn't bring out the horror.

The film doesn't make it as a slasher or horror film. It is a weak sci-fi thriller, perhaps attempting to be too realistic to be entertaining. It leaves itself open for a sequel, although outside of Leonie (Lisa Vicari) who reminded me of a young Jennifer Lawrence, I didn't relate to them.

PARENTAL GUIDE: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Attempted sex/rape. Hannah Herzsprung briefly running around in panties. "R" rating? Seriously?

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Tsuyoshi on September 26, 2012
Format: DVD
The year is 2016. Because of the increasing solar activity, the earth's temperature has become higher by 10 degrees Celsius. The land has dried up and crops have perished. Modern civilization has collapsed and the earth has become an uninhabitable place for humans. Few survivors keep travelling under the scorching sun, looking for water. Two young sisters Marie and Leonie are among them, travelling with a man named Phillip driving around in a dust-covered car.

Executive-produced by Roland Emmerich ("Independence Day" and "2012"), the low-budget post-apocalyptic thriller begins with an interesting premise, but without developing the sci-fi theme, "Hell" quickly shifts into a familiar formula about the travelers and their predicaments in the backwoods. In short, you have seen this in "The Road" or other horror films.

Tim Fehlbaum's direction is slick once action gets started, but details of this catastrophic disaster remain vague at best. The cinematography of the bleak landscape soaked in overflowing light is impressive enough to live up with the film's double-meaning title ("Hell" means in German "bright"), but the effects of the sunshine such as heat and UV exposure are not fully made use of to enhance the film's drama and suspense .

But the real problem of "Hell" is that the characters are not really interesting, including the sisters Marie and Leonie. Why are they travelling alone? Why does she have a CD of Nena's "99 Luftballons"? The film wastes every chance to flesh them out. When the two male characters are less memorable, why should we care? "Zombieland" did it much better.

This is not to say "Hell" is a terrible film, but as a survival thriller or a H.G. Wells-like modern-day fable "Hell" leaves much to be desired, lacking its own voice.

Hell (Bright) (Tim Fehlbaum, 2011)

Hell reminded me a great deal of another, even lower-budget, German film for no real reason I can put my finger on, Jens Wolf's Noctem. While this one has more plot, better acting, and an even bleaker outlook on life, while I was watching it, my mind kept stealing back to Wolf's 2003 effort, which I found quite good given its lack of professional talent both in front of and behind the camera; "a labor of love" is, at least when I use it, often a synonym for "unrepentantly amateur", but Wolf transcended that and came up with something, if not deathless, quite watchable and a good deal of fun. I got that same vibe from Fehlbaum (Nicht Meine Hochzeit)'s second feature, though I rush to add that with both of these films I'm using the word "fun" in a rather loose sense.

Fehlbaum's movie gives us a makeshift family--Tom (Unknown's Stipe Erceg), Marie (The Reader's Hannah Herzsprung), and Leonie (Hanni and Nanni's Lisa Vicari)--living in a post-apocalyptic world where the Earth is moving, ever so slowly, closer to the sun. Being outside without being fully covered is almost instant death. There is no darkness, as we know it, just periods of less light. Tom and co. are making do the way most survivors in this world presumably do--a nomadic existence in a station wagon that contains their earthly possessions, raiding abandoned gas stations for fuel, trying to get to a fabled compound in the mountains where, supposedly, they can settle down. The film's first confrontation comes at an abandoned fuel station, where another drifter, Phillip (Home for the Weekend's Lars Eidinger), attempts to make off with some of their stuff, and instead ends up coming along for the ride.
