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.

Overall, very emotional and disturbing pie
