It feels real and gritty, being there listening to the rescue operations making the decisions of what to save and where to distribute limited resources, and the many ways each story line presents to the chaotic scenes and death that the survivors must handle. The acting and dialog are decent, and I felt like the settings and how the stories progress are realistic in the way they've been filmed.
There is no single hero to save the day, and sometimes decisions that are made lead to a tragic ending of a particular story line. The ending isn't a happy one, Aftershock seems appropriate for the tone of the movie. Many have stated they didn't like it Not all movies are made to be entertaining to the masses.
Some are stories, events, thoughts, etc. This is one such movie. Anyone who has survived a disaster or has trained to assist will see this as a more like a documentary or a training 'video'. If you are looking for an action-packed Hollywood movie, this isn't for you. If you haven't been in large disaster and want a feel of what to expect, this is definitely something to watch. I have never been one to be moved to write a review about any movie.
But this one, just wow. Extremely well done. The story lines are not unnecessarily tragic or hopeful - nothing is over dramaticized. You can expect being saddened by loss and surprised by survival. Some story lines really struck me: they were really good at capturing the lack of closure humans would have if such a catastrophic event were to happen: there is no sad goodbye before the last breath is taken, no recognition of heroes lost.
The movie really captures the frivolity of survival: people seem to have randomly died or survived you can't guess that the "bold leader" will survive in the end, and "the jerk" will die - as what usually happens in movie tropes.
And finally, some loose ends are never tied up. This movie leaves you feeling differently from other weather apocalypse movies.
I didn't rush to run google searches on the likelihood of these events, frenetic and nervous like these kinds of films and their effects usually provoke me to do. This movie just sat with me for a while. It, though clearly covering a heinously catastrophic event, was subtly and beautifully done, trying to cover the "fact of human nature" rather than drama.
Broke my heart to see it only had a "tv film" release. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life. He sent his Son to save the world through him. John ,17 NIRV 18 Whoever believes and has decided to trust in Him [as personal Savior and Lord] is not judged [for this one, there is no judgment, no rejection, no condemnation]; but the one who does not believe [and has decided to reject Him as personal Savior and Lord] is judged already [that one has been convicted and sentenced], Aftershock, because [b]he has not believed and trusted in the name of the [One and] only begotten Son of God [the One who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, the One who alone can save him].
Amplified Bible Study Notes God bless you! Watch it. This was a very good documentary style drama. The special effects were very good and realistic but not over the top.
The actors were just like "normal" people, not Hollywood-type stars. Show graph. Brought to you by Steam Labs.
