The Man From Earth Reviews

    Badly written, badly acted, with cheap sets and laughable costuming. The entire plot consists of stodgy adults sitting around discussing philosophical claptrap.

    This is a tough film to rate. It isn't a movie in the classic sense... there is no action or even much of a plot. The acting and production values are not that good. And yet, this is a compelling film for someone that is interested in the topic - what if a 14,000 year old man survived until today? What would he have experienced. It is more like watching a YouTube panel of professors argue the merits of the idea... and while much of it is predictable, it is fascinating to watch. If the topic doesn't interest you though, this will be a snorefest.

    For what it was I thought it was pretty decent. It takes a minute or two to pull you in but after it gets going it is interesting. The sound was off a bit seemed like the background music was too loud at times.

    A wonderful thought experiment portrayed on film. It makes you ponder what questions you would ask if you were a part of this discussion. Great dialogue and believable acting, which are absolutely essential in a movie solely encompasses a conversation in a living room. However, too much time passes in the timeline of the movie during the conversation (from day to night) without an explanation of what else was happening. As if we missed a significant part of the conversation. Also, I think the movie "jumped the shark" with the Jesus angle.

    Its great why dialog driven movies like this can be so interesting. That means that the dialog alone has to be interesting enough to engage a viewer. And it is.

    فيلم فلسفي يحاول تناول الأديان الإبراهيمية من وجهة نظر مؤرخين يرون ان التاريخ يتم تحريفه حسب دوافع غريزية لدى الإنسان (الخوف - )
