Audience Reviews for Fukkatsu no hi (Day of Resurrection) (The End) (Virus)

½

huge big budget box office failure..n no wonder...past prime time players chuck conners, robert vaugh, glenn ford., et. al....quick easy paycheck...acting is stiff, script & plot well intentioned but hokey and laughable in parts..this film is at least an hour too long..but a good primer to see how disaster films with a moralistic message should NOT be done..and oh yes....Olivia is a fox

Sometimes overwrought but mostly heartbreaking. Yeah. I'm man enough to admit I wept at like three different points in this movie. I defy anyone to watch the 5 year old Toby Anderson trying-to-work-the-radio sequence and then tell me they didn't well up. The US version sucks by ending the movie with everyone (left) and everything blowing up, so do yourself a favor and track down the Japanese cut. At least it ends with a glimmer of hope (though the trek south sequence could've stood some trimming)

Big budget Japanese production is pretty good. Fine and believable story, great cast does a decent job acting. Always interesting.
