End of the World (2018)


As mass of solar storms causes tsunamis, volcanoes, and flooding, a city-dwelling family attempts to flee to the relative safety of a group of high-elevation caves several miles away. 

REVIEW: There's two things that Asylum pumps out faster than you can blink - mockbusters and Natural Disaster movies, with the generically-titled End of the World being the latest of the latter.

If you've seen one Asylum-made Natural Disaster movie you've pretty much seen them all, as they're all essentially the exact same movie just with different actors and a few minor details different - a family that doesn't quite all get along, of which one member is a scientist warning about the impending disaster with nobody listening to them, have to make their way through destroyed cities to reunite with one another, with disasters happening every few minutes, and then eventually get to a safe zone. They are pretty much all literally the exact same.

Luckily this is one of the ones with better acting than average for an Asylum movie, decent level of special effects for this kind of fare, and fun scenes of destruction that hardly slows down. Some of these, for some reason, have very little actual scenes of destruction, which makes no sense to me as that's the exact reason that you watch Natural Disaster movies. But luckily this is one that gives us plenty of that, with likeable and well-acted characters to follow during the down time between said scenes of destruction.

End of the World is nothing new at all for those like me that watch all these types of movies that Asylum puts out. But even though there's nothing new, the stuff it does do is done quite well, which puts this one near the top of the list for me for Asylum-made disaster movies. Unfortunately, it also makes reviewing it pretty difficult since it feels like I've already reviewed this movie umpteen times over. Still, as long as Asylum keeps making them, I'll keep watching them. Even with the movies essentially being carbon copies of one another, as long as the actors are decent and the scenes of destruction and survival are fun than I'll still enjoy my time watching them.
