Classic Sci-fi Fayre, no SFX necessary.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Man From Earth  [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this based on it's rating on here having bought a couple of classic sci-fi titles (Silent Running, Dark Star), so I thought I'd give it a shot. My first thoughts as it started were 'made for TV', it just had that quality about it, but what a great script! It all takes part for the most part in a log cabin where a bunch of friends gather to say farewell to a work colleague who decides to let them into a secret, he's 14,000 years old!
Is he delusional, or truly that old? Classic sci-fi fayre, all about ideas, no SFX here. If you fancy a Twilight Zone / Outer Limits tale with a bit more time to flesh itself out I'd recommend this. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
If you like your Sci-Fi all SFX guns, space ships & explosions, this is not for you.
