I'd actually give it 3.5 stars 4 perhaps.

The concept is original, barring a few plot holes and inconsistencies it makes for a good thought provoking film.
One of its best points is undoubtedly the flaws in the movies plot. As this movie revolves around the whole concept of a philosophy lesson turned apocalyptic simulation revolving on logical thought and decision making. It stimulates and provokes you to think and possibly discuss (if not watched alone) not only the happenings of the movie but the plot inconsistencies which add to the philosophical debate as a whole.

(I'm not the most articulate in my native language therefore this may not make sense even though I know what I'm on about :p )

Is this perhaps based on a stage play? Quite a disappointing film really: it looks good, it's well acted, well scored and has quite good dialogue but... what initially starts out as a fairly interesting plot premise (an end of final-year thought experiment in a high-school philosophy class), seems to descend into some kind of sociology / liberal arts wet-dream, after about the half-way point. As a result the plot ultimately seems rather juvenile.

A very entertaining, visually stunning exploration of a simple idea. A group of philosophy students are put through their paces by their inspirational teacher. Well scripted and well acted only marred by a slightly curious and unsatisfying ending

oh god.. how bad was this!!?? er.. really disappointed to have paid to watch something that was quite simply a half hearted, unrealistic and unthought through study on pretentious human behaviour. None of the characters are very likeable, and one of them is hideously inappropriate and unprofessional, as well as being unlikable.. not much to go on there then. Really, by the end of it, you just wish they'd all perish and save the Earth from spawning any more like them. The worst of the whole experience however, is quite simply the boredom of having to sit through more than five minutes of this; badly acted, no depth in the personalities, badly written, badly directed.. need I go on??

An unusual film which was very different to anything I have seen before. It seemed to change about half way through as if a different writer had taken over. I think I understood the ending but am not certain.

Definitely not the film as advertised, but well crafted ,well acted, highly engaging. I was expecting zombie trash and i got something interesting, very different, intelligent. Well worth the time.

The concept was promising but failed to deliver. Would have been better if the experiment was real and not just played out like a computer generated game scenario in their heads. There were no real dangers, no real plot twists and the narrative kept going in different directions. And despite the implied sex to repopulate the species the film itself dragged towards an ultimately unsatisfactory climax.

Oh dear. The lead actress is awful. wooden.... face with the emotion of a cabbage. very hammy acting from some of the cast. Some good ideas but thats about it. and the ENDING!???? what a load of crap. terrible ending. when I read the other reviews which said "awful ending" I thought I would try it, couldnt be that bad. But It really is that bad. I wanted to punch that stupid lead girl in her emotionless face. The end.
