The Lost Future is a clever storyline that never truly developed, probably due its smaller budget. The predominantly young cast does a very good job with limited characters. Good acting and the passion to make a good movie makes for some good scenes later on. There are also some clever ideas, and good CGI later in the film.
In terms of the final product, there are limitations. The sense of geographical scale, important to the storyline, didn't seem to develop well into the final movie. The film will only appeal to a smaller range of people.

Hannah Tointon plays her small part well and may be one to watch out for in future. Sean Bean's performance and character is brilliant. The bonus features are good, and show that the film could have been something really special if it had more resources.

I'm glad I bought this film and will watch it a few times. Renting first would be a good idea.

What do you look for in a film? If it's:

1. Action
2. Interesting story
3. A believable cast
4. Something philosophical...

then this film is for you! I don't get a lot of choice with films, I'm an Amazon Prime member so we don't get the latest films. But I picked this one even though I was very dubious after reading the reviews.

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Don't expect it to be Schindler's List, but it's a tale about about what people might do in a Post-apocalyptic world, sans zombies. It's different from other films, and I think 90% of the cast was completely convincing and the CGI was was better than big budget films like The Green Lantern.

I love Sean Bean but that doesn't bias me towards this film, even though he was the only actor I recognised it was still an enjoyable film that wasn't completely predictable, it had some new elements along with old ideas (think: The Time Machine).

I find it hard, very hard, to find films that I don't bitch about because of cheesy stories, or crap acting, and I hate Hollywood's attitude of throwing money and big effects at a written story in an attempt to make it appealing. I don't watch films twice but if a friend wanted to see this film then I would sit with them and watch it for a second time.

If you're an Amazon Prime member then surprisingly, yet honestly, this is one of the best films you can watch for free (I've watched a lot of them). And Sean Bean is such a great actor (it's not a 5-minute cameo)!

This is a sort of One Million years BC meets Buck Rogers in the 25th Century meets the Omega Man or Time Machine [Samantha Mumba version]. Set in a post apocalyptic future the human race survives in small isolated pockets, the rest of humanity having been turned into savage mutants bent on murder and destruction by genetic engineering gone awry. When one of these outposts is attacked by the encroaching mutants, a small group attempt to discover if there are any other settlements 'out there'. In comes Sean bean as a 'survivor who seems to have done okay on his own [well with his wife & child] The band learn there is a cure -a yellow powder and so their trek begins in a weak Lord of the Rings sort of journey where Sean has a number of 'friends' who have links with other outposts.
It all sounds much better than it really is. The script has numerous errors for the picky amongst you and the small band originally give themselves a day to venture forth. The world seems ever so small when you consider the time they seem to be travelling yet they have little knowledge of it all and the terrain changes very quickly. That aside, its a watchable film but suffers from a low budget and some ill conceived plot lines where they manage to come and go with far too much ease.
If you like the doom and gloom of the post apocalyptic and don't mind a made for TV approach then this will probably do you well. It is watchable and entertaining, its just that it seems a bit lacklustre given the story outline and a lot more could have been achieved. Don't pay too much for it and you'll probably think it's fine.

I didn't like this film at all, I barely managed to finish watching it and I am really sorry that I bought it. Below, more of my impressions with VERY LIMITED SPOILERS.

This film was made for Syfy TV and is a post-apocalyptic SF story about a small tribe of humans, struggling to survive in a country of wild forests and marshes when avoiding mutant beasts which carry a horrible disease. With time most people forgot even how to read and write and as the result of all the hardships the memories of once powerful human civilization are fading. But one day a small ray of hope appears with news that somebody may have found the cure for the disease...

With just a minimum effort to improve dialogs and character development this could be actually a good story - but sadly this effort was not made. Characters are barely drafted and stereotyped, dialogs are very poor, there is no humour, acting is wooden and Sean Bean (unlike what is suggested on the cover) appears only briefly. There is only one reasonably good scene, in which tribal people hunt a giant mutant sloth - and that is all. All the rest is total "Bantha pudu" as Jabba the Hutt used to say...

I threw away the DVD immediately after watching it, as I don't think it was worthy even giving away for charity sale. I lost my money (OK, not much, I bought it used) and especially one evening I will never get back. Don't make the same mistake and AVOID this thing as deadly plague carried by giant mutant sloths...
