Morris-Burke does deserve applause for what he has accomplished technically on a shoestring budget. His location scout is a hero. But the over-complicated, under-emotional Jim's reach ultimately exceeds its grasp.

A fatally unwieldy construct of naturalistic drama and cataclysmic sci-fi.

Though one senses that the movie in Morris-Burkes head makes more sense than the movie onscreen, his technical virtuosity and thematic ambition mark him as a filmmaker of promise.
