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!

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.

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.

This is an enjoyable movie, with some good one-liners, and a few (predictable, clearly foreshadowed) plot twists. I enjoyed the choice of actors from HBO's Heroes and from Eureka (tv.) The special effects are not bad, either. It does run a little slow at times. And, a few scenes look like they were filmed in one take, when a few more would have helped.
But, it was fun to watch.

A sparkly blue bubble without Glinda in attendance crashes to Earth, signally the END of the world!!! Thank goodness a couple of self avowed sci-fi experts are on hand to save us all. When they're not arguing or rattling off obscure references to movies we're supposed to automatically recognize because EVERYONE lives and breathes this stuff to the exclusion of all else. Even for a sci-fi comedy (of sorts) that's a lot to expect. The main problem with referential humor is that it relies entirely on the audience knowing exactly what is being referenced in order to get the joke. At some point it's realized that a lot of what is being spewed is just nonsense, apropos of nothing. Then everything rests entirely on whether or not you like these characters/actors and the situation they find themselves in. If you don't, then you're reduced to watching a bunch of knuckleheads acting like idiots while trying to save the world.

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.

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.

My son is a die hard sci fy natural disaster guy. He has aspengers and has loved these types of movies ever since he was young; so, we purchase A LOT Of these movies and I don't think there are too many that we don't own. And I look forward to more coming out. If you are into natural disaster movies, look into these ones.
