5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very different and very, very enjoyable., 12 Dec 2012
This review is from: Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World [DVD] (DVD)
At last a part that really suits Keira Knightly - flaky home-counties girl abroad. Steve Carrell is superb playing the part he always plays - confused male: he may be a somewhat limited actor but what he can do he does well.

I just love the premise that nobody really knows what to do as the end of the world approaches: thus, the film gives the whole range from aggressive mayhem and kindness, murder and sacrifice , suicide and optimism, orgies of sex/drugs and sensible selfless behaviour, humanity and evil etc, etc. There are those whom just give up and those who carry on as usual as if nothing will happen and every range in between. I wonder if my lawn will be neatly mown when Armageddon strikes?

It is, however, a film that will have its detractors and will be intensely disliked by those who judge their films solely on violence and action. This is expected and not a criticism of the film and it is not an action movie.
