Not as expected, much better Oct. 11 2008
By Brian Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was hoping to bank in on the horrid cover and back panel as I picked this guy up off the shelves of my local Blockbuster. However, I discovered after about 45 seconds of viewing that this was not going to be a shlock-fest as I'd hoped. However, it did turn into a wonderfully enchanting independent film about a group of people making sense of themselves and of a world that has fallen to pieces around them. The backgrounds of the main characters are slowly unveiled while their journey pushes them forward, following the only thing they can; the voices they hear over radio waves.

Again, don't be fooled into thinking that 20 YEARS LATER (should be titled Like Moles, Like Rats) or the tag-line of 'AFTER THE BOMBS. AFTER THE PLAGUES. BEFORE THE UNKNOWN' has anything to do with the movie. It's not Planet of the Apes, it's not Soylent Green, it's not I Am Legend, and it's not Children of Men.

Some serious time and love has been put into this film, and it deserves respect.

Impressive cast, directing & screenwriting Dec 2 2008
By Anon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this movie from start to finish. Azura Skye portrayed her character well & had us empathetic with her struggle to survive & succeed. I found the acting by the doctor to be superb; his character was adoring, yet we were left with a tragic ending for him. The storyline was, nevertheless, excellent, and the directorial debut by Jim Torres was outstanding. This is a well-made, scripted & directed movie for those who care to see a movie with good character development and a story that will be remembered because of the struggles experienced by these characters.
Really lame June 28 2014

The only reason it gets any stars at all is because it was filmed in Huntsville Alabama, particularly in Three Caves, which is a really cool place. Unfortunately this isn't enough by itself to overcome the film's many flaws.

The plot isn't super original, but it's decent. The storyline in the second half gets a bit disconnected and lost. Compared to The Road, it lacks the credibility, plausibility, and desperation. Characters this helpless would not still be around after 20 years of lawlessness and anarchy. On the contrary, they'd be the first victims.

The acting is hammed up quite a bit and the mystical traveling man who, as one of the main good guy characters you're presumably supposed to be rooting for, is creepy as hell. Creepy and freaky seem to be common threads with a lot of the characters. The main protagonist is a worthless, uninteresting, dime-a-dozen suburban kid whose only useful skill is broadcasting old records and nostalgic, emo gab over the radio. Never mind using the Ham radio to help separated family members find each other or to barter for fuel, medical supplies, etc.; let's use up the fuel in the generator to tie up the airwaves with music.

Then there are the costumes and props, most of which look like they were bought the day before at K-Mart and are so clean and fresh they shouldn't even have bothered taking the tags off. (This IS a post-apocalyptic film that takes place--as you may have guessed by the title--twenty years after.) It is also apparent that 20 years after an apocalypse cigarettes will be as commonly found as rocks and gravel.

On a more positive note, the CG FX were decent. Not up there with Avatar or the Matrix, but very good for a low budget film.

The only time you'll ever wish for a second nuclear war Dec 27 2008
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Bad post-apocalyptic movies and pregnancies are very similar. They're both slow, deliberate, and excruciating. For pregnancy, there are drugs - legal drugs - that can dull the pain, and there are procedures that can speed the process. For horrible movies without a real premise set after a nuclear war, there is no reprieve.

When resources are scarce, with water and food nowhere to be found, it's every man for himself. When Samuel Singleton meets two women squatting in his house - Margaret and Sarah (eight months pregnant) - they decide to take a trip to a spring-fed lake in order to save their lives. Along with a radio host named Michael, they meet up with a colony of survivors living in a system of caves. From there it's a bunch of poorly done hocus-pocus amidst a poor attempt at some sort of pseudo The Road Warrior meets Raising Arizona, as a character similar to Morgana from Excalibur attempts to steal the only baby born in the last 15 years.

It's slow, disjointed, poorly acted, and tediously irritating. The dartboard timing of the soundtrack borders on unnerving, like cats screeching while you're reading. The transitions are abruptly inappropriate, like a cage match breaking out at a kindergarten. The characters have a noxious combination of preposterous acting talent and the ability to elicit angered contempt from the audience.

The plot, characters, and situations are all loosely connected. Like a drugged spider in a futile attempt to weave a web, there really is no chance at saving the movie or the viewer from the inevitable pain that is sure to be worse than child-birth. It's just too bad there wasn't a second nuclear war about 15 minutes into this affront to cinema.

Only redeeming feature is the song May 5 2009
By Mr. Motown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Zillions of logical flaws--people are way too clean, trimmed, and civil. Mostly, they're just too plump--are supplies running low or not? Was there or was there not a nuclear cataclysm so great that it totally destroyed society and blighted agriculture, and if so...?

As the other reviewers have said, "Post-Apocalyptic" nearly requires the adjective "bad". This is even worse than that. In addition to an absolutely nonsensical plot thread (and associated stock caricatures--insane sisters/adopted daughters of "wicked witch")we also have actual fairyland style magic with a psycho-mystic twist courtesy of a cheesy Black "shaman". Imagine Lionel Richie blathering platitudes in Morgan Freeman's very blandest voice.

And for all that, Tara Nevins' rendition of "Stars Fell on Alabama" is worth the rental.
