Critic Reviews for The Man From Earth
Very probably will be one of the best science fiction films of this decade. It really deserves to be seen.
Audience Reviews for The Man From Earth
It is always interesting to see a science fiction centered on a constant dialogue, even if it is a film that never reaches the full potential of its fascinating idea and remains somewhat obvious, with also unlikable characters. Besides, the acting is not very good either.
December 23, 2010 I'd nothing else worthwhile to do, so I went for this flick. Generally, I don't like movies that include only conversations for most of its part. However, I found this one kinda unique & was interested in the conversations till the very end. It was quite offbeat, but I liked it reasonably well. All the actors were new to me, but everyone played their part well (after all, there was not much scope for acting since majority of the movie comprised of conversations).
