Before the advent of "Radiospace" it is difficult to imagine what other cases can lead to across-the panic and madness of man. Now understanding there. When turned off the electricity and phone the Internet no longer work, humanity (well, at least that part of shown to the movie), becomes unmanageable, seeking to leave the big city and quickly snapped up with the shelves that they can be useful.

In General a typical case for those situations where it is not clear what happened, but people try to "care" about yourself. Without looting hastily leaving the city and my house father daughter — Chris (Dominic Monaghan) and Reese (Brighton Sharbino) that are sent to Frank (will Patton), a grandpa for Reese.

"Radiospace" going down trodden by many films way, trying to show a General panic, growing with every second because of the unknown threats. Here and the notorious pogroms in stores a giant tube of city, the widespread psychosis induced by the nature of man in the first place to panic, but not to think clearly and to give an objective assessment of what is happening.

As in the films "Bird box", "Silence", "It comes at night" and some other in "Radiospace" people decide that the cities better off and go the city. Here, however, as such threat (at least explicitly) do not shows why the viewer there is quite a fair question: why leave the city if just simply turn off the electricity? But if the toilet ceases to flush the water — all — down the drain? Although there is no. It will be much worse if you suddenly close all place where the typically, American citizens eat Breakfast, gobbling up eggs with bacon and coffee pancakes! Here when exactly the Apocalypse will come!

In connection with this theme of mass escape from the city looks a bit silly and far-fetched. To the same directed by Ben McPherson, by setting one storyline, he was not able to develop it, totally forgetting about with which all began. The storyline turned into the struggle of father and daughter for survival the wild, where they had to deal with those of the blessings of civilization and remembers.

Thus "Radiospace" is divided on two parts. They both are linked one and the same characters, but the rest of them presence does not fit. In connection this is not clear that wanted to convey to the Director: to show how the unfit may be to life in nature citizens? And might show madness on the background of immersion of a person in stone age (without the benefits of civilization)? Or all the same, to tell you how the granddaughter is trying to get to his grandfather, bumping at this a variety of characters?

The "Radiospace" is filled with some contradictions and inconsistencies. As possible to damage the body and not have trace on the clothes, although the bleeding is the place to be? How accident can happen Yes so that the upside-down car will lie exactly perpendicular to the roadway (and is not possible to move it with a space — resources, technical and human for abound). How can work the radio (if old) — is for its functioning does not need the electricity?

The film is very weak with a large number of topics, each of which are either not developed or are abandoned by the Director in the lurch. The only thing what you can enjoy, like it from the contemplation of natural scenery, but for the most part "Radiospace" — this is a primitive version of the Apocalypse, sucked from the finger.

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Pleasant viewing.

The picture is a kind of apocalyptic aspiring American-made film with a rather primitive plot. But this job was able to hook surface. Loved the natural atmosphere and slightly increasing the tempo in an emergency situation. The authors, though part, but accurately described the moment that people of impunity can commit any crime. Definitely, blowing banality and excessive dramatic, there are a bunch of visible holes, but something was attracted to the event. Perhaps it was just easy and not annoying characters.

The story goes on the beaten track: a mysterious pulse knocked out the electricity, the father takes the daughter (or even the opposite on the film turned out) and run for the grandfather in the woods to hide, only the question "who and why?". Why run from the city where all there is, even food and a roof over head. Why succumb to the General frenzy and running the forests of the field, do they believe that nature of the than professional easier stay in the city as make smart people, and a few of them, and a left after the General capitulation in the unknown. Then was not movie, film, I gotta say, pretty entertaining, well-played I can even say adventure. Although there are many inaccuracies and inconsistencies, as in the actions of the characters, and the plot, but this movie in General is not port, that fans of the Apocalypse to see it worth it. The main idea of the film to make the viewer think, "what if instead of electricity to turn off the water or block the gas whether to pack to run aimlessly, or still remain and waiting for the fix?".

However, picture it — it is very boring. He is quite interesting, as above written, but sometimes nauseating scene simply sucked from the finger. A film on its tragic for the main character of the event was given too heavy, but do not forget that the film the theme of some catastrophe of global scale, and so much snot is clearly unnecessary. Many overextended scenes, which were not really relevant, unnecessary conversations, experiences and other boring, from where I began to take in a dream. And so a few times for the movie.

And yet, despite some very boring fragments, the film is not will be called a complete failure. This picture of the survival, and in different understanding. If the original heroes tried to escape from the big city in relations with the beginning of strange events, then we see a semblance Turn back, and after Surviving smell. And that last was the most entertaining. The scene in the woods I liked it. And history the bear is really really shot, and bright was presented a scene transition of the ravine at the log.

What is there to talk — it was just beautifully filmed part of survival in the woods. Nature — the natural beauty I love it. Removed — just awesome. Bright colors fill the screen in these fragments of a dream finally left me. Beautiful forest picture is pleasing to the eye, the operator huge respect for the work done!

Of the cast, whom were involved in a few, I familiar only Dominic Monaghan, known to many in the role of Charlie, from series Stay alive. Its low rise and slightly funny face he looked a little sloppy in the role of the father of an adult daughter, but in principle, the situation does not spoil, yeah and have played about a third of the film is just that. To the rest of the actors have no complaints. By the way, had the feeling that the actors the operator, the Charter to argue with the Director tried to pull a movie on their own. What they almost succeeded.

Summary — the film will be called watchable, but nothing more. That the mediocrity and boredom, which manifests itself in a number of episodes, given their unstable, causing a positive result is not be. To the about the resulting catastrophe is absolutely not have anything explained that not paints the picture. Must be the reason for this phenomenon, but us about her to tell had forgotten. Disposable film that can skip. In General, look or not you decide, I will remain neutral.
