The last sevenBy bloodwing (5 reviews) from London , 15 Sep 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Well oh my god
we know Danny can act if he can be bothered but here he is not even given a chance and poor old Tamer looks like he is sulking in all his scenes just knowing that he alone can't pull this one off . It,s a short run time but seems far to long the film does not work starts badly and ends badly looks like they run out of money ending the film as fast as they could with a ending which did not make the film add up. As was the well worn path of a empty London which really seems to be a messed up flash back with messy inter cut flash backs making no sense or help in story telling
( moving the film along ) . It,s paced far to slowly has no presence or gives you any interest in any of the poor odd ball Characters. Poor acting apart from Daisy Head she gave a good performance but alone she had little chance acting with people who ether did not care or could not act in the first place all in all very disappointing.

Danny Dyer-bolicalBy Sharlock (13 reviews) , 29 Apr 2013A bad movie! Ok, so why give it two stars? Because it's a fascinating premise that makes you want to watch just to figure out how everything pieces together. Apart from that, it's complete and utter garbage. Right, here we go. No spoilers. Imagine London, a city of seven million sould being reduced to just seven people with no immediately obvious reason. Imagine those seven having no memory of who they are or how this came to pass. Imagine their memories returning in tantalising but confusing snippets, leaving them wondering what's real and what isn't. Imagine all their watches, and all the clocks in the city stopped at exactly 7:36. And imagine that you know Danny Dyer is in the film but isn't among the seven. Ok so far? Fascinating premise. Poorly executed. Let's leave the 'acting' to one side. You don't watch a Danny Dire... sorry, Dyer... film for the thespian qualities. As it happens, I found the quality of some of the acting to be real-life natural, rather than 'movie dialogue natural', but that is a minor plus point. One of my pet gripes is the portrayal of people of faith, specifically Christians, as being screw-loose ravers who do nothing but quote Scripture and look like obvious candidates for the fly in the ointment moments. This film suffers from exactly that stereotype. I wonder (still, after all this time) if we'll ever see a movie where a Christian is treated like a sane, rational human being. Anyway, the twist at the end may cause a few raised eyebrows. It does bring everything neatly together and explains it all for the hard of understanding. To sum up, someone had a great idea for a movie, but ultimately the people who made the film couldn't do justice to the idea. A massive disappointment.
Poor filmBy a customer , 08 Jan 2013Gave up watching this after about forty five minutes did not want to waste any more of my life poor film
The Last film to watch...By Wyattwolf (14 reviews) , 22 Dec 2012Did the person who wrote the blurb even watch the film!? Nothing to do with ineffective politics, population growth or the ravageses of climate change. Attention to detail was pathetic, wearing a plate carrier that is set up for SA80 or M4, not a MP5...that bugged me straight away till the story is actually revealed as to what it was...the repetative flash backs did nothing but irritate me...massive let down this...
Very poor - not waste your time!By a customer , 15 Nov 2012Thought this film was one of the most boring films i have every watched and feel like i wasted an hour and half of my life watching it!
Thought ProvokingBy ecoequity (1 review) , 10 Nov 2012I agree that the blurb on here is misleading, but I disagree with the poor reviews. Granted some of the dialogue could have been more realistic, but then again, the characters are in a mind blowing situation. Also, the timing could have been tighter. Overall however, I found it intriguing, complex, and thought provoking. Makes you wonder if you are ready for the grim reaper---whether you are a believer or not.
