Just awful...

This film is so bad I can't even be bothered stringing how much I hate this film into cogent sentences.

So, 97 years after the bots take over you're telling me that the windows on the shops are crystal clean? You're telling me that despite no new clothes being manufactured the human characters look like they've just got a whole new wardrobe from GAP? That nearly 100 years of neglect has seen no collapsed roofs, no weeds growing from gutters, and fields that look like they've been fallow for a couple of years? That street signs, railings, window shutters, metal roll shutters have absolutely no signs of rust? That despite the bot driven apocalypse, the main female lead still has time to obviously dye her hair? In the scenes running through forests, they follow well worn and undergrowth free paths.... worn and maintained by whom exactly? Bots? In one of the opening scenes, a shop is engulfed in ivy inside yet in one of the later scenes, a house described as 'really old' has perfectly white whitewashed walls, and inside looks pristine - photographs aren't faded, glass cabinets haven't a speck of dust on them... in fact there is no dust, not even a cob web! And given that the house hasn't been heated for 97 years, it's amazing that there is no damp whatsoever. 97 year old Polaroid film works and, it must be energizer, because the batteries are still fresh. Despite being out in the wilds for days on end the male lead is always perfectly cleanly shaven. Even when he is woken from sleep he has been mysteriously shaved - then again he is a robot - a fact that the writers are at pains to have us aware of from the outset with the laboured 'no food for me' scene - funny then that when the girl falls asleep on his chest she doesn't notice that he doesn't need to breathe (we presume) And then, when they meet some nasty humans, they are all covered in stubble, dirt and worn clothes - oh my, so original.

The male lead gets tied up in a brand spanking new rope. I mean, this thing clearly was just bought from a shop on the day... and the rope magically moves from one scene to the next... did they take lunch in the middle of shooting the 'tied up in brand new rope' scenes? Maybe they should have...

The male lead is only capable of two expressions - eyes normal and eyes bursting out of his head. There is nothing in between and the rest of his face is entirely pointless. Lucky for him that the dialogue doesn't require much else. Actually, I'm not giving him credit... he can do a variation on these two expressions above including with mouth open and with mouth shut.

The female lead should take urgent note that crying involves water coming from the eyes. You can't snivel and gasp for air, and then expect to look authentic with a perfectly dry face.

Special effects are dire - in the opening scenes burning buildings look like someone went mad with the Photoshop clone tool. Explosions don't cast any light on objects that are close by and clouds of dense smoke don't cast any shadows and dissipate in moments leaving no trace. Enormous bots appear to defy the laws of physics and move through dense forestry without causing a single tree to move.

'Whats in your chest' scene - great work on the 97 year old straw bales that look to have been made in the last week... and the plentiful fresh straw on the ground in the barn... just lazy...

Lighting.... I mean really.... what is happening with the lighting? In a dark and dingy forest, and it looks like two blazing follow spots behind the cameras.... just cheap and nasty.

The characters are so poorly developed that their behaviour is schizophrenic at best.

Continuity is a joke - in the opening scenes we see buildings burnt to to the ground, yet in later scenes, and I mean 97 years later scenes, they are visible in the background, with lights on inside. Really, 97 years after the rise of the bots, they are still using lights? Who is changing the bulbs? Bot janitor? Who even makes the bulbs?

The bots themselves. If you're looking for humans, perhaps IR might be better than visible light to detect them? I think it's utterly lazy that the main feature of the film, that drives the whole storyline, the bots, are so poor.

After leaving the 'facility' (you just know that's what they call it), they walk through a field of corn ready to be harvested. I'm feeling like a stuck record here...

John Cusack must have been desperate for the cash.

Not very good

Plain and simple, this is not a very good movie. There are definitely some good aspects to it that I did appreciate, but right off the bat there are some glaringly obvious problems that will probably irk you, so lets get them out of the way quickly.

97 years after the robots have destroyed 8+ billion people and our heroine is walking around in new clothes and makeup like she's just had a makeover. She,(in fact both our leads) are always pristine, its totally ridiculous. She also has a crossbow, arrows, a new canteen, GPS tracker and in fact just seems to magic things from nowhere whenever they are needed. It's preposterous. There are incidents like this throughout the whole movie that continually jerk you from the setting as you wonder how 'this or that' would be 'just so' given the history of events.

Aside from those overtly obvious issues there are many others. The acting is poor, the cast is very small and only John Cusack and Carmen Argenziano are up to the task. The script is terrible, it's corny, stilted, and hackneyed. There is a pointless voice-over that accompanies many scenes with our two leads, but mostly it just describes on screen events. Kronos always knows where they are and has a holo-image of everything they do yet he's having difficulty finding aurora. That our leads continually do stupid things or behave atypically is a given. Much of the music is overdone. There is barely a scene without musical accompaniment and this rather than the acting is what unfortunately conveys most of the mood. This is just a handful of he problems, there's a lot more, but you get the point so I won't go on.

However its not all bad. Though most everything in this endeavour is B-movie standard, the visuals aren't. There is some great cinematography. The scenic shots are great, the sci-fi shots with the mekanoids are also quite impressive, and good shots, angles, and perspective detail throughout... in fact the whole visual portfolio seems to have been carefully planned, structured and executed. Some credit is due here to the camera and visual crew. It's only with the action sequences where shots degenerate to shaky camera action that leaves a lot to be desired. The sci-fi special effects are also pretty good.

The plot is actually a good one, a post apocalyptic one with a lot of promise. Unfortunately it's just been executed poorly and a lot more care and planning needed doing before this went to screen. Some tips from 'The Walking Dead' would not have gone amiss.

I think its main failing is you're never really pulled in into the story because of the distractions and weaknesses. At best you watch, but are on the outskirts of everything happening on screen and never really taken into the tale. Its a sure-fire mistake that marks many self indulgent interests that centre too much on the project rather than the movie as a piece of entertainment from the perspective of the audience. If I had to guess I would say there' an inexperienced director at the helm and maybe a sketchy production crew.

As I've said I think there are some good people involved in this project, but all in all, the movie isn't entertaining and I can't say its worth watching... sadly.

~ 4/10 Beware of Fake Ratings!!

I gave it a 2, but it's more of 4/10 movie...maybe. I lowered the rating because producers/owners of the movie are using one of many sites that give you free positive ratings, which is illegal. They should've spent that budget on making the movie better! Just google: buy IMDb ratings and many sites will pop-up offering this service. Real rating of this movie is more like 4/10 at the MOST!

OK acting by some...Bad for some others and of course 1 good actor.

The issue I have with the movie is that it is pointless, slow and predictable. I won't discuss bad graphics sfx as certainly the budget wasn't big.

The story could've had so much more to it. It just sad they decided to dumb-out the script and make it so plain. It is a very slow pace movie and not in a good way as I got bored 1/3 of the way and not sure how I got through the rest- I was really expecting it to pick up and it never did. The idea behind the movie is nice,but it was never developed at all.

Do NOT believe the high rating (currently 8) as those are fake ratings. There are many sites that sell Anyone giving this more than 5 or 6 did not watch the movie at all. I'd say any reviews of 2-5 can be considered real.
