Hammock may have begun his career making worlds for other directors, but given a chance to create his own here, he not only succeeds but excels.
Hammock's carefully composed widescreen shots of the parched landscape contribute to crafting the film's stripped-down, distinctly menacing visual aesthetic and emphasize the isolation of the inhabitants, forced to compete for water and survival.
At times, like its cast of characters, The Last Survivors looks a little rough around the edges, but it certainly achieves more than its glossy compatriots.
There's nothing really new on the thematic front here, but production designer-turned-director Tom Hammock does wonders with desert vistas and, along with Richardson, has created a sci-fi heroine as real as the girl next door.
It's a film that depends heavily on its central performance. Richardson shines in what was her first major film role, giving Kendal a roundedness rarely seen in either genre.
An attenuated plot (and some very questionable logic) leaves us with a long and wearying Road populated by people with luxurious hair and far-too-neatly-trimmed beards.
A smartly-crafted, lo-fi apocalypse that packs in substantial substance and care for its budget.
This is ultimately an interesting and pretty but rather vacuous failure.
A refreshingly novel take on a rather oft-told apocalypse tale.
The kind of serviceable yet lovingly crafted indie genre picture you wish was made more often.
