Movie Review by Martin
February 1st, 2010

Another movie set in a deserted future this. Here an earthquake or something has wiped out the human race and one of the only survivors is Viggo Mortensen, who has made it his mission to protect his young son from the horrors that now surround them.

This flick features some great actors (including almost unrecognisable turns from Robert Duvall and Guy Pearce) done up like tramps because of the poor conditions of the depressing future this film is set in. Its an OK movie, kind of slow and straight forward. Don't be expecting anything as science fictiony as "I am legend" from this futuristic movie, as it is more a realistic version of what a real post-apocalyptic future would maybe be like.

Don't be expecting any huge destructive scenes like right out of "2012" either, as this film is more of a drama, with some tear jerking moments along the way.
