Final Storm Review
My fiancé and I laid down and watched it. The opening showed some promise. It had been storming for 3-5 days straight and the world was thrown into chaos. That is about where you can turn off the movie. You follow a country family (mom, dad, and son) and a stranger that they took in. The stranger at first claims it is his house, and it comes out after about an hour and ten minutes that is was his parent's house.
I have no idea what to even say because nothing happens for almost the whole movie. They go to two towns to find them deserted and the last five minutes is the stranger trying to kill the dad and take the family as his own. Other than that 15 minutes of the movie, nothing happens, literally. We were SO bored and the music kept building up to....... nothing. This is probably the worst movie yet in this challenge because of that.
End of Spoiler!
But yea, this is definitely a movie to avoid. I don't even think it fits in a genre just because of that reason. It's kind of a horror but not scary. It's kind of a drama, but you don't care about what's going on. If it wasn't for the music and the feeling that something had to happen, this movie would of been off in 10 minutes. There are so many questions that were left unanswered too. What happened to everyone? Where did they all go? Why are the animals gone? How does Luke Perry know what he does? And the ending leaves even more questions.
Good luck with this movie if you take up the challenge. Now that you know that NOTHING happens though, it will be easier to turn off.
This weekends choices: The Superhero (Action Thriller, a mix of live action and animation; outlook:grim), Narcosys (Action Sci-fi & Fantasy, Netflix says I'm going to give it 1 star, I bet they are right), and finally, As You Like It (Romantic Comedy, a [poor?] adaptation of Shakespeare, almost 2 hours long. /sigh)
