      Johnathan B Worth a watch. Beautiful celluloid! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review Ghederick Eshmont Profoundly English & an extremely meditative study of the primal essence of protecting one’s child. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/09/23 Full Review Aidan C Slow, filmed in backw yards and and up close to hide the lack of budget...takes from the acting. Story bit tenuous. Disappointed Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Toni L This was a mesmerising performance by Jodie Comer from start to finish. Apocalyptic floods and the panic and breakdown of life. Received a round of applause at my local cinema, Jodie deserves an award for this. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review IVIR 8 Jodie Comer proving yet again that she's one of the best actresses of this generation. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Kevin L Decent flick. Comer was very good. Good to see more of her. Loved Killing Eve for the most part. The movie reflected the 'everyone for themselves' panic mode human beings pretty well. Odd to see Cumberbatch take such a small role. C'mon now, he's great. Waterson was very good as always. The movie stayed out of melodrama tendencies in general. But I wasn't very compelled by it all. The desperation was conveyed well at times, but as for the 'mystery' element in the description, I didn't get that. The husband/father character was a real wimp and a deserter. Didn't care for that, but...happens. It's good that the running time was about 100 min. I may not have stayed with it had it gone over 2 hrs. 3 stars Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It's a really strong film. Perhaps a little repetitious... But nevertheless the thoughts and the notions going on here are very moving. Feb 1, 2024 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode and Mayo's Take (YouTube) A very confident piece of direction from Mahalia Belo. Jan 23, 2024 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) The concept here is a little more potent than any individual scene, since there’s a tendency to undercut raw emotion with a tidy metaphor. But Comer gracefully draws attention back to the core of Hunter’s story. Rated: 3/5 Jan 18, 2024 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Jodie Comer's riveting performance is the main reason to watch The End We Start From, an occasionally vague but well-acted survival story about a new mother trying to survive with her baby during an environmental crisis. Mar 3, 2024 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills Destruction spectacle is scarce, yet the cumulative emotional impact is considerable, making this an unusually touching piece of near-future fiction. Feb 15, 2024 Full Review Joe Friar Fort Worth Report The ending feels a bit rushed, otherwise, Mahalia Belo’s feature debut manages to stay afloat with memorable performances and a message that motherhood can be way more frightening than Mother Nature.
