Saw this in our hotel when flicking through the movies and the title and synopsis sounded like they were leaving Manhattan and going on a wanderlust road trip, although they ended in a commune and stayed there :o/ So this led to cliches and boring situation comedy although some parts were funny like the guitar battle and some witty one liners. But on the whole, the film is passable.
Just too unbelievable to enjoy it properly. With the amazing 3D visuals and effects aside, I feel cheated that a woman can be lost in space, thrown around like a rag doll and end up on earth walking ok after 1hr and 30 minutes in space. Also, the music annoyed me, I wished they ditched the string orchestra and kept more ambient sounds going.
Fantastic thriller, loved it! A man wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there followed by strangers piecing together why they are there, exactly my type of film. The plot, direction and atmospheric music is fantastic and the end has a great payoff to a film that is devoid of a formulaic plot & a Hollywood ending which is always welcome!
When I saw that this was a kind of buddy road trip with a soundtrack by David Wingo & Explosions In The Sky, I had to see this film & whilst this isn't for the blockbuster crowd, I loved it. This film is a well constructed film with loads of ambient music thrown in to give your brain a rinse and a rest. Thoroughly recommended to those that just need to switch off now and then.
If people like this, then they would probably like Monsters featuring music from Jon Hopkins which is in a similar vein to Prince Avalanche.
I gave World's End 2 and a half stars as the first half of the film is highly amusing and original. I loved the jokes, the British nostalgia and the music choice for the film. However when it came to the second half, it left both me and my friend bewildered as we lost interest in the silliness that ensued.I would definitely watch the first half again and switch it off when the silly aliens come into the toilet.
