Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Morris-Burke does deserve applause for what he has accomplished technically on a shoestring budget. His location scout is a hero. But the over-complicated, under-emotional Jim's reach ultimately exceeds its grasp."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"Unfortunately, each narrative strand is so packed with straight-out-of-writing-class dialogue that the film feels longer than its hour-and-46-minute running time."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"An imaginative, provocative and refreshingly unconventional, yet somewhat uneven amalgamation of sci-fi, drama, romance, tragedy and social commentary."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"A fatally unwieldy construct of naturalistic drama and cataclysmic sci-fi."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Morris-Burke's ambitions outweigh his uneven execution -- some performers are better than others, the effects work is highly variable -- but there's undeniable talent in every frame."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"It's never a good sign when a movie begins with a polished yet cold infomercial with slyly conformist undertones representing a soulless corporation selling "day after tomorrow" possibilities to a fearful public."
‑ Glenn Heath Jr., Slant Magazine
"Thematically ambitious but poorly executed sci-fi tale."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Though one senses that the movie in Morris-Burkes head makes more sense than the movie onscreen, his technical virtuosity and thematic ambition mark him as a filmmaker of promise."
‑ Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
