Humanity's End Reviews
A real good surprise with charismatic characters , humor and tons of atmosphere. My favorite movie this year.
this is by no means a good movie, the acting is horrible and it lacks the one really hammy actor of a truly so bad its good movie. most of the actors in this movie are rather stiff, reading their lines in a near monotone. the plot itself is rather complex, with a large exposition dump taking up the first 8 minutes of the movie. overall, this movie is not that entertaining, but there have been far worse movies made with much larger budgets than this one.
However, even inside a steaming pile of manure there's always some perfectly good seeds to be found.
For a sci-fi buff this 'movie' has some really inventive starship designs, you get the feeling a lot of effort went into the whole thing, even if it ended up an unholy mess.
Most of the dialogue is cringe worthy, and yet contained in the most unexpected places there are some really snappy one liners.
Blake Edgerton, the co-producer/costume designer/master carpenter/bellhop at the Burbank Inn to help cover the cost of rooms for the "cast" and crew seems to be the most to blame for this monstrosity, but there is plenty of blame to go around for everyone. I tend to overlook profanity in a film if it is integral to the story line, but this movie cusses for cussing stakes, and besides it has no story line. "you F***ity F*** F***!" is an actual quote from the movie. The acting is terrible, the special effects are terrible, I was actually GLAD when Captain James T. Jerk (Derasi) finally bites it at the end of the film, and found myself wishing the same fate on any of his ill-fated spawn.
Bottom line, I want my dollar and my time back, and monetary damages for pain and suffering from the viewing of this piece of cinematic sewage.
Bright note? Uhm... Peta Johnson is not hard on the eyes, but is on the ears when her lines begin.
The special effects were on par with a few video games I have played in the 90's.
I feel sorry for the actors, having done this film, they will likely never get a job selling cars.
