Apocalypse Road Trailer
My thoughts: I was one of those seemingly rare people that didn’t go gaga for the Mad Max movie when I finally got around to watching it. I’ve also never watched post-apocalyptic staples like The Road. Generally, the post-apocalyptic genre doesn’t really do it for me unless it involves heavy sci-fi or zombies. Zombies are always good.
However, I will say that Apocalypse Road’s trailer did look interesting because it seemed to be set fairly soon after an apocalyptic event. I got the impression that whatever happened, it wasn’t necessarily a world-ender in the way we typically think about them. So, this could be more near-future thriller than normal post-apocalyptic happenings, and that makes me a bit more inclined to watch it.
While i don’t recognize any of the cast, Katie Kohler did seem like she could do a solid job of pulling off a tough-as-nails character.
Just could be worth the watch!
What about you guys? Are you post-apocalyptic film nuts? Does Apocalypse Road tickle your fancy?
