Brink, The (2018) Movie Poster
UK  •    •  141m  •    •  Directed by: Andrew Gilbert.  •  Starring: Luke Hobson, Georgie Smibert, Chris Kaye, Grant Kempster, Kirstie Shapiro..
    15 years after world war three, the nuclear winter is over, but mankind is on the verge of extinction. Civilisation no longer exists, food is scarce and most eke out a living by stealing and killing. One boy clings onto life in the desolate countryside of southern Britain, where staying away from other humans has been key to his survival. But this self imposed isolation comes to an abrupt end when he crosses paths with another group of survivors and an enemy far more savage than any of them could imagine.


Far too long, the acting was amateur hour at best; right from the off when the main character meets the female it was like watching two people firing lines at each other from a script with zero emotion or natural acting ability and the locations looked terrible - The house location at the end looked like it was the directors house with clean white painted walls and polished double glazed windows it certainly did not look like a house in the middle of a post apocalyptic disaster which would certainly be a bit grubby with smashed windows and no freshly mown lawns and pruned trees and that's what made the movie look a bit amateur hour even more. I cna forgive all that if the film is exciting and has some good CGI and effects but sadly this has none of that either, it is actually like something me and my pals used to make up at the local 2woods when we were at school!

I would love to have said it was good as the whole ensemble do seem to want to try and make good horror movies but i have to be honest and disagree with all the other positive reviewers whether or not they are shills is debatable but the extreme length of this film at over two hours made it even harder to get through. It is fairly violent but the effects are also cheap but I am not going to give it the usual 1 out of ten most folks seem to think is fair when they don't like a film. In my view that is what you give the worst film you have ever seen as I always try and be fair and I have seen much worse films than this and as the director filmed it all on a Magic 4K8K Handcam he has to be given some kudos so i give this one a fair 310.

He had an idea but with these type of films you really need a decent budget, better effects and actors if you want to make it into a "Postman" style epic long-play movie!
