Critic Reviews for Five

All Critics (3)

Dull, talky, gloomy, pretentious, naive and slow-moving post-apocalyptic survival story of the unfit.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A beautifully realized, semi-pretentious, almost forgotten mini-classic of Atom Age after-the-bomb poetry and paranoia, 'Five' sketches its post-disaster environment with admirable economy; it now seems more like an 'art' film than a genre effort.

Audience Reviews for Five


A deep interesting post-apocalyptic film. It doesn't handle everything smoothly, but it does enough to leave you thinking. Good characters, decent pacing, and a fair ending.
