In a large apartment high above the city lives our couple. They’re in love. She’s a painter, he’s a successful actor. Just a normal afternoon - except that this isn’t a normal afternoon, for them or anyone else. Because tomorrow, at 4:44 am, give or take a few seconds, the world will come to an end far more rapidly than even the worst doomsayer could have imagined. The final meltdown will come, not without warnings, but with no means of escape. There will be no survivors. As always, there are those who, as their final cigarette is being lit and the blindfold tightened, will still hope against hope for some kind of reprieve. For a miracle. Not our two lovers. They - like the majority of the Earth’s population - have accepted their fate; the world is going to end.




  • Liked a lot, unexpectedly

    From the previous reviews, I expected to not like this very much. However, I was quite drawn to the carefully selected content and the constructed sequence and manner in which it was displayed. Great work. Great reminder of how we do/will not take responsibility for our daily thoughts/words/actions. Do not forget to see the "message" in the gal's artwork. It all should affect you.

    Not taking anything from actor Williem Defoe because he is a great actor but this movie had me with anitcipation on exactly how this movie was going to end. Sadly to say it was abig disappointment. iTunes can I have my cost for renting back ? (lol).
  • Probably the worst movie I

    By Liquid Love Drop
    This movie will make you want the world to end just so the pain and agony of watching such an awful movie will stop. I would rather have my wisdom teeth pulled with no anesthesia or get mugged on the street than watch this pathetic excuse for a film. If you feel like watching two extremely boring people spend their last minutes on the planet on Skype then this is the movie for you. Dull, boring, lame.
  • Pretentious & dull. You'll want the world to end within the first 4 minutes

    By ILSParamedic
    Pretentious and dull. This had great potential and the trailer suggests a lot more depth. The reality was almost no character development, a gratuitous sex scene within the first few minutes and characters that were less likable as the movie went on. I so wanted the world to end a few hours earlier to spare me the misery! This felt like a really pretentious off Broadway play, complete with monologues. It simply fails to hit the mark on every level. I hadn't seen Willem Dafoe in a feature for a long time and this didn't do his talent justice. I followed this movie with "The Hunter" which restore my faith in him and further highlighted with a poor story and terrible direction there is little room for improvement.
  • Failed Due to Writing

    By Rabbit Holes
    I saw this movie because recently I saw two other fantastic works of science fiction: "Melancholia" and "Another Earth." So I thought for sure this could be like that, and instead it's nothing but sopping, nauseating die hard Al Gore propaganda. This could have been such a great movie if it had recognized the fact the whole premise of the movie is ridiculous and then explored what people do wrong when they live in fear. The movie could have been redeemed if it recognized the whole stupidity of itself and used it as an aesop's fable. But it was serious about its stupidity. It was a failure of writing. Go see "Melancholia" or "Another Earth" instead. Don't waste your time on this.
  • Awful

    By Askforu
    4 minutes and 44 Seconds was more than enough
  • Dull, boring and slow

    By IsThatYourBag
    Knew the ending going in, but after about 10 minutes of this tripe, I was ready for the world to end.
  • Last Day on Earth….Couldn't Come Fast Enough

    By Dean in Oregon
    Wow……kept wondering HOW everyone would die, then after about 20 minutes wondered why everyone wouldn't JUST die. Another 3.99 iTunes credit shot to hell.
  • Terminally and Irredeemably Bleak

    By Alec_Baldwin
    ….but, hey, it's about the end of the Earth, right? One hardly expects lavish musical numbers and fart-jokes, and although I can respect what the director was trying to say; that even faced with civilization's greatest collective, we as individuals remain who we are. Cabbies still drive. Junkies and hookers and Chinese delivery boys keep plugging away at the only lives they know even during the last minutes of existence. And Abel Ferrera is a first rate director. But his end of the Earth is so unflinchingly…..DULL, I am sure that I would have slept through it. Willem Dafoe sleepwalks through his performance tied to one of the most annoying cinema girlfriends in history (although I will admit her last lines are touching). All in all this film is not pleasant, particularly enlightening, or entertaining. 1998's LAST NIGHT (a little seen indie that pops up occasionally on the Sundance Channel) is infinitely more clever in presenting an identical scenario. If it were, truly, the End of The World, I would spend my few precious minutes watching this rather than 4:44.
