      Cath Clarke Guardian A ropey film can be saved by a great ending; this is not that movie, but the closing scene is unexpectedly moving. Rated: 2/5 Dec 22, 2020 Full Review James Perkins Starburst A solid sci-fi action film from Russia that proves that they have good ideas but haven't quite perfected the formula just yet with a clunky first two acts. Rated: 3/5 Jan 13, 2021 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall There are some intriguing angles in the premise, and the elaborate story details offer some social commentary, but it begins to feel bombastic and indulgent as it goes on. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 8, 2021 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film It's clumsily paced in places and relies a lot on the preexisting assumptions of fans, but at its best it's still a pretty good action romp with bigger than average ideas. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 28, 2020 Full Review Kat Hughes THN A film of two halves, the first being more narrative and character driven, the second, all-out action, The Blackout is an exciting, if not fully realised invasion story. Rated: 3/5 Dec 23, 2020 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia Egor Baranov's film keeps you guessing until the very end. Constantly defying expectations and taking the plot in unusual and unexpected directions Dec 21, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jerry A Visually well shot, good acting as far as watching the English dub. But the story falls flat, a lot of elements that made no sense for the sake of plot. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Janis A It was ok, not BAD for a Russian Produtction. The worst thing was the overly military stile of the movie.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/09/23 Full Review Un R Good plot, lots of shooting and zombies but the plot is based on spiritual values. You don't born with qualities of a human, you became one or not at all and humanity will fail. As a race, we can win this game, all united. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Rich C Interesting concept. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/30/23 Full Review Jeff D Fresh is the definition of this movie. It's absolutely mind blowing. Top tier! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/30/23 Full Review Marie-France Great visuals. Love the story and the ending. Hopeful without being hokey.
