The Blackout (2014) Movie
« on: October 23, 2017, 09:16:25 PM »
One of the most realistic and non-BS/annoying movies about survival after more than about a week without power throughout the whole globe. No BS, just a really simple and great movie.

If you've seen it, what did you think?

Give it a watch and let me know what you think here in the comments.

An ensemble thriller which tells the story of four college students, an expectant couple, and a lone survival expert who are confronted by a global blackout that forces them to endure the worst of human nature as society falls apart around them.

I saw that back when it first came out.

Informative, scary and what else can I do so all this chit don't happen to me when the power grid does shut down.

It wasnt bad.
it was still clearly written by mainstream kinda folks though given the outcome and some of the travails of the characters.

Still a huge improvement from previous mainstream stuff.

A little ways in I realized I had already seen it.  I watched it again because I couldn't remember what happens next... must'a been drinkin' the first time I saw it.

Overall, MrsMac and I gave it a 2.5 out of 5, with 5 being great.

It is on Amazon Prime so worth watching if you are a member and want to kill 1 1/2 hours. But if you have to pay for it, put your $$$ into preps.

Sorry old story-line.

 Watched it today. I thought it was a bit understated, a good number of people if trapped in an elevator would panic and it mildly touched on the violence that would happen. It would probably take another 1 1/2 hrs more to get that all in.
