4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Premise - Primal Themes October 2, 2009
By D. Hall
We've become a cynical viewing public, disuading all but the studio blockbusters from even attempting special effects films. I found this feature to be insightful and enlightening. The struggle for the truth of human existence and particularly a (rare) focus on women's issues makes this production a standout. Examining the mother/nurturer vs. conquering warrior themes in women is a refreshing departure from the typical sci-fi plot structure, and I appreciate the spotlight on women for a change! Jay Laisne was a perfect tragic hero. Again, focus was placed not just on the sexy savy hero flirting with disaster, but also on deeper layers of ambition and man's sense of identity and purpose.
The music was absolutely gorgeous and created a frame for the narrative. And the lighting and effects were enough for this viewer to suspend disbelief. I think it is sad that viewers have become so jaded that special effects comparisons even have to be made. Remember the very first Star Trek shows? I accepted every bit of it. And, compared to today's technology, one could easily criticize those special effects too.
At the end of the day, it's the story. And this one is thought provoking and provocative. I'd recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The adventures of Han Solo long lost red-neck cousin October 30, 2010
I grew up in the late 70's, early 80's when Star Wars came out when everybody wanted more movies like that and for a while there was none around. Many of us still remember those B-Movies (and some times Z-Movies) productions that everybody all around the world was trying to create to jump on the success of George Lucas. It was the time of "Galaxina", "Battle Beyond the Stars", "The Humanoid", "Starchaser" and the brilliant "Starcrash" among many other obscure stuff. It was a time where there wasn't yet a new special effects movie opening every weekend and so people were going to all these alternatives trying to get more of the same atmosphere seen in Star Wars.

Now, i just discovered this "Humanity's End" the other day, and i thought i was in for a really, really bad catastrophe movie. The trailer seemed to have something appealing, but at the same time it made the movie look like much worse that actually is. In fact, the only thing real bad on "Humanity's End" it's the tittle !! What a lousy name for such a great little space adventure ! Someone should rename this movie and release it again, because despite being an independent production with lots of flaws and an obvious lack of budget it manages to be one of the most fun and pure Space-Operas out there in the best Doc Smith 30's classic style made with modern a look.

It feels like an imaginative clone of Serenity with all the good fun in place mixed with something like the adventures of Han Solo's red-neck lost cousin with a touch of forbidden archeology themes mixed in it (Zacharia Sitchin/Richard Hoagland/Coast to Coast Radio)and the fact is that everything works perfectly.

"Humanity's End" has a strange feel to it.

Considering this had a low-budget of just $2m ($3m if you add the marketing) it's a remarkably cohesive and fun film. Certainly the best indie SF B-movie I've seen since Immortal - and I daresay people will have similarly mixed reactions to it. These days we're all dazzled by the gloss and audience-measured plotlines of $50m epics, I suspect, and so we gripe when we see some indie grit. But if you can get past that, there's a decent entertainment to be had here. Overall the film feels rather like a long episode of Firefly, only with a 'reveal' that the Reavers were just bluffing and are actually the long-time immortal overlords of humanity rather than space brigands. But Humanity's End sprinkles that Firefly mix with the humanised-robots from Battlestar Galactica, and a few small touches of Star Wars (not much, just a Han Solo-alike, and some Scout Walker-alikes). The introduction to the film, narrating the history of humanity for seven minutes, has a rather poor choice of stock images and an annoying narrator - I would have thought any budding fantasy artist would have been happy to apply their skills here at little cost. But after the introduction, there's a lot to like. Except in a few explosions and laser-fire, the world of the film looks believable. The plot is a little stretched at times, especially towards the end, and I would have thought a little more SF inventiveness could have added a few subtle twists and thus avoided some illogicality. And the films threatens to bog down a little in the middle with an appropriately SF love-triangle, but the acting manages to keep it afloat. The acting throughout is convincing, and I can't understand other reviews that moan that the acting is very poor. So, some of the baddies are hamming it up - but it comes with the territory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective Script that Breaks the Mold August 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
"Humanity's End" is a mix of good and bad. And in the end, the good parts of the film outweigh the bad. If one focuses on the hero, then the movie is a terrible waste. But if one focuses on the female characters, then the movie takes on a completely different tone.

The Good:
* Special effects, most of them very colorful and appropriate.
* The music is moving and powerful
* The introduction of the movie retells human history, and the ending wraps the story up in a similarly ambitious way.

The Bad:
* A few of the effects are overdone and some are inappropriate. For example, gigantic explosions are scaled-down and placed into a firefight.
* The same music is repeatedly used and begins to lose its impact.
* The story is essentially that of Battlestar Galactica (old or new series), so it is not original.
* Many of the scenes involve sophmoric dialogue and humor that are uncomfortable to watch.

The Interesting:
* The hero is immature, crude, and has no redeeming qualities. Every other character has more charm than he does. And this is what makes the movie different; he is intentionally scripted as an unsympatheic, immature character.
* The hero is analogous to the Christ of the Christian New Testament.
* The female characters are the actual heroines of the story. They should be seen as the characters who actually move the story along.

If you have read this far, then you may be patient enough to watch this movie and ignore the hero.
