Chris Pine is a dick who drives himself, his brother, his girlfriend and another friend through the apocalypse.  They of course meet some mean people along the way, but the worst part is that they’re not very likable themselves.  Chris Pine especially.  He’s an asshole and everyone lets him be an asshole so, I guess they are no better.  Apparently, the point of the movie is that the end of the world will turn everyone into monsters.  There will be no good people left anywhere.  What a shitty, pessimistic outlook.

The effects were good and the acting was good, but we refuse to believe all people would act this way.  And a dog dies.  Ugh!!

We would walk out of the room if someone turned it on in our presence.

Our score: 24.
