This movie also suffers from the ire of religion aficionados and hence receives bad reviews on Netflix and IMDb. Rest assured, this is a great movie with equal parts survival horror and Tarantino-esque irony.
The movie does have a compact script and keeps things pretty straightforward to brief acts. There is, however, never a dull moment. Definitely one of Kevin Smith's best works.
One word of caution, do not expect traditional structure of a protagonist driven plot. This movie is quite off kilter, using characters as disposable plot devices. I for one, loved that little unpredictability to this film.
Extremely entertaining, unless you are waiting for rapture yourself.
A pretty decent movie. Do not believe the barrage of 1 star ratings.
I am kind of weary of the multitudes of 1 star reviews. Seems to be some conscious effort to limit this movie's viewership.
Anyway the movie is well shot, well acted and interesting throughout its 2 parts. A bit laborious and (in a self aware manner) takes liberties with coincidence. However, if you can stomach a little bit of nudity, which apparently so many pitchfork yielding IMDb users can not, do watch it.
I absolutely hated Shia Lebouf and his fake and faulty British accent though..
Lars Von Trier is a good film maker. Personally, I thought Melancholia was brilliant. This was good enough to watch.
