I feel like the ratings are giving this movie a bit of a beating, and unfairly so. I appreciate that this is not a mind-blowing blockbuster, but - taken in context - it is just a beautiful dark-tale. Someone previously mentioned 'pace' issues, but I didn't actually find it a fault. The two leads are strong and believable, even facing such a fantastical race to find a reason for what is happening. I think it is cleverly wrote to piece together the mystery. A few other reviews have mentioned 'Silent Hill', but if you are anything like me and a big wimp when it comes to horror... please don't be put off as although a bit nail-biting at times, it is far from 'Horror'. If you don't go in expecting it to change your life, then I would seriously recommend this film.
When seeing the trailer for After for the first time, I was a bit skeptical. But the story peaked my interest. What I walked out of was a refreshing take on the genre of the thriller. I can't go into a "scary"movie anymore without watching either someone demon possessed (not really my thing) or girls and guys getting ripped to shreds by some mutant human. Sure, I love my Shining and even a little Evil Dead, but too much realistic gore just takes me out of the story. So, it was awesome to see a well acted, great looking film that had all the suspense I needed without the explicit gore. Lead Steven Strait did a wonderful job as our hero, while Karolina Wydra was captivating and easy to root for. What I loved most about this story was the idea of these moments that connect us that we may not even be aware of. How many people do you pass on the street that you may have played with as a kid, lived next door to, or more? Check out After. It offers plenty of thrills for the thrill seekers and yet also gives us a heart-warming story we unfortunately don't get to see in the Hollywood thriller anymore.
I just watched the movie After on Netflix. I don't recall having heard anything about it previously, no reviews or anything of the sort. I was pleased with what I saw. It's difficult to discuss the movie without giving anything away and there are other movies with similar premises, but this one was well-executed. Two strangers from the same town meet one another on a bus, with a bit of abbreviated and failed flirtation, shortly before there is a severe accident. The next thing we know they are the only two people apparently alive and active in their town. There are no corpses and no signs of life beyond the two of them. Surrounding the town is a wall of black, swirling mist with lightning and thunder active within it...and the wall is closing in. It doesn't take altogether too long before the two protagonists discuss the possibility that they might both be dead, so they aren't as stupid as the characters in a lot of movies along these lines. We get to know them both pretty well along the way, through surprisingly natural conversation and glimpses into the past, without a lot of unnecessary exposition. I won't go into any further details, you'll need to watch it yourself if you want those, but the acting is good and the production quality is high enough that it doesn't feel like a low budget movie at all. It's always kind of nice to go into watching a movie without any idea what to expect and to be pleasantly surprised.
Like one of the Twilight Zone episodes. It starts out as sci-fi, then seems to move to supernatural/horror, then revealed as a psychological thriller and love story. I thought acting was competent, dialog intelligent, well-made for such a tiny budget. You never quite know where this film is going, full of surprises and unexpected twists, even when you think you see where it is going. The empty small town may be remind you of "Where is Everyone?" (the first episode of Twilight Zone), but from there it takes off in its own direction, never staying in the same direction for long. There are hints that this is a dream, but not enough to spoil the plot.
**Slight spoilers but nothing too specific** After is a well-shot indie fantasy film that's worth catching. The first 2/3 of the film setup, at a rather deliberate pace, some decent suspense and mystery as to what exactly is happening to our heroes. The last third turns from thriller more to romance, which personally turned me off. The film had good potential as a thriller in my opinion until they took that fork in the road. Pros: Two leads are solid in their roles, which is very respectable considering the weight that is put onto them. Interesting start and some decent mystery/suspense. Special effects were interesting. Cons: Stalled out in terms of thrills, took the film in an unexpected and, to me, unwelcome direction. Overall I think of After as a darker-in-nature "What Dreams May Come"-style fantasy but without the over reliance on special effects. The film is definitely worth seeking out for a viewing.
