2.5 out of 10 Great History but Flawed characters...
Anthony from Limerick, 25 Sep 2009
Australian TV miniseries condensed into a 3h movie. The general plot is quite interesting: what happens to Australia (and a U.S. submarine) after the Northern hemisphere is nuked. However, there are critical flaws in character personality and interaction, meaning that, although their families are dead and humanity is on the brink of extintion, they still have time to laugh, play and cheat on their recently deceased spouses, as if nothing has happened... Overall, very emotional and disturbing pie
