Movie summary: When a mysterious terrorist attack causes chaos in the cities, a group of friends take refuge in their countryside cabin. But the challenges of living in a post-apocalyptic world soon take their toll on relationships within the group.
Goodbye World was not a favorite of professional movie reviewers. In fact it received horrible reviews which is understandable considering the political affiliation of those in Hollywood. Regardless – I really enjoyed this movie.
A few thoughts –
- The collapse of technology seems to effect mostly power stations. Computers still work but there is no Internet. Phones still work but there is no service which to make calls. Cars still work but there is no fuel. Radio and television communications is extremely limited.
- The vast majority of the movie is related to the relationships between the characters who are held up at the self-sufficient cabin while civilization collapses around them.
- The story references the planning the cabin-owner put into his home – gardening, generator, solar, animals, and medicine. Absolutely no firearms were part of his “survivalist” supplies which turns out to be a big problem.
- Bartering was part of the story line.
Not worthy of an Academy Award Goodbye World is worthy of purchase. It can be streamed on Netflix or purchased off Amazon for around $15.00.
