The Quiet Earth-a movie review

Posted: March 17, 2012 in Movies, Science Fail

Last night I watched the film The Quiet Earth, a 1985 apocalyptic classic. It’s about a scientist named Zac Hobson who wakes up one morning only to find out he is the last person on earth. Everybody else has mysteriously disappeared, seemingly in a blink of an eye. While realising and investigating his fate Zac comes across a crashed plane…of course with no passengers in it, but all the seatbelts are securely fastend. This may remind some of you of “Life After People – Population Zero”….oh wait….Population One 🙂 Zac soon realises this “effect” has something to do with the (large scale world wide) experiment he has been working on…and that he is not alone after all. And all survivors have something morbid in common.

It was quite entertaining to watch, but definately not one of the best post-apocalyptic movies I have ever seen. Spoiler Alert! If you don’t want to watch the whole film because you don’t have 2 hours for it just watch the trailer 😀

    I rented this as a Mormon 11-year-old and it freaked the shit out of me. Luckily no one cared to watch it with me so I didn’t have to fast-forward through the awkwardly long boob scene (yes, there’s a boob scene).

What do you think about this?
