It's never too late to find someone worth living for.

Residents of Perth, Australia, face the end of days as a meteor destined for earth nears impact. With the deadline only hours away and the population rioting, self-absorbed James (Nathan Phillips, Wolf Creek) heads to the ultimate party-to-end-all-parties. On his way, his plans are abandoned as he stops to help a young girl (Angourie Rice, Walking with Dinosaurs) searching desperately for her missing father.

It’s not the obvious city to host the murderous mayhem and rampant immorality of Earth’s very last day. Hilditch fights hard to keep ever-encroaching silliness at bay... a standout performance from 12-year-old Angourie Rice grounds the bizarre events whenever she’s onscreen.

If it's spectacle you want, those final moments are hard to beat. All reservations aside, it's a terrific movie.

There is no doubting Zac Hilditch's visual skills but his screenplay seems slightly underdeveloped, too much surface and not enough grit or character development.
