    The end isn't as good as the beginning.

    We have seen end of the world extinction films over and over. This time one woman's heroics leads her to find friends can become more, saving the life of a man she comes across in the wastelands of what used to be her home town, the woman finds love. When a third person is added into the mix trouble brews. This film is a low budget movie that has dreams. It s worth watching for the talented actors who star in it. The ending though lacks the big Hollywood overly explain ed ending. The films writer, director and stars seem to want us, the viewers to figure out for ourself what happened. Watch this film, it is a slow burn.

    Mildly interesting post-apocalypse movie

    There are loads of post-apocalypse movies that are flashy, violent, and full of special effects. This post-apocalypse movie is not one of those. This movie has only 3 characters and focuses on the emotions and personal relations of the 3 characters. If you want lots of action and special effects, don't watch this movie. If you want to see a different, change-of-pace post-apocalypse movie, give this movie a try. Although I've seen better movies, this one was a welcome change of pace and worth the time.

    What kind of personal morality and social values do 3 people follow when they are the only 3 people left in the world? Do you worry about acting civilly and selflessly toward your remaining 2 companions, or do you selfishly do what's best for you? That's the core question of this movie, and it's a great movie for looking at that question. This isn't your typical end-of-the-world shoot-em-up. Nobody kills or dies on screen. The dramatic tensions are all emotional and very real.

    Interesting sci-fi film

    I liked the cast, and that is why I decided to buy the film. It's kind of the run of the mill post-apocalyptic film that you'd expect. No surprise there, but it is interesting to see the three characters unfold. Not a bad film. It also came with an exclusive Mondo card. I really liked that.

    I originally read this book as a youth when it first came out. Though changed for the movie, the plot shows a post apocalyptic world akin to the many different forms in modern media. This brings back memories from that first reading 40 years ago!

    I remember reading this book as a kid, and vaguely remember what the book contents were. Nonetheless, it was a movie that I added to my Blu-ray collection. I didn't like how it ended, but still a good movie.

    A very good movie. One of those movies where while watching you can put your self into the movie and say what you would do in the same situation. I always enjoy when you can do that.
