        I wasn't expecting much and only decide to watch because I I had interest in seeing Margot Robbie and she rental at you for, but even with very little expectations this very slow film fails to entertain. Set up a simple and the characters are even simpler ; it's discouraging to think that when survival is the number one importance the three people left in the world still managed to complicate their existence is with junior high level relationship issues. Did you have for is an ass and for some reason feels he has to whisper most of the time when there's no one left to hear him but the person he's talking to. Another underwhelming movie that makes me wonder exactly why did the filmmakers feel this movie had to be made?

        It's the end of the world again and a young white woman has a choice to make: white guy or black guy to play Adam to her Eve? The World The Flesh and The Devil (1959) gets a reboot, with the inner city location changed to out in the country. No matter, after 56 years the gist of the thing is still about race and the seething distrust of the otherness (and so forget about progress). See the original first. Still the actors and production involve one in the storytelling, regardless how foregone the conclusion.

        The movie borrowed from the book and that's about as close to the source material we get. They honestly could rename the movie and I'd probably note the similarities and that would be the end of it. I enjoyed the film with the slow burning story but the thriller angle was replaced and the film never really gets into a higher gear. The ending is one note and had no meat, that was hugely disappointing. Overall the film works in its own way and will be one of those hidden gems for people to discover

        After a nuclear holocaust, a woman believes she is the last person on the planet until two men appear. The most interesting aspect of this film is the religious debate between Loomis and Ann, complicated by Caleb's belief. Loomis represents practicality, but Ann and Caleb's faith is not a polar opposite of Loomis's point of view; instead, for Ann and Caleb, faith and religion is a sense of community. I would have liked to see this debate played out and dramatized with greater precision, but the film devolves into a simple love triangle and Ann gives up too easily, such that her character is so easily dominated that one thinks there was never any conflict to begin with. What is more, her relationship with Caleb marks not true belief but mercurial fascination that reflects hypocrisy. If there's a message here, it's a weak one. Overall, what began as an interesting concept devolved into a cliche.
