An opinion of the film ‘Seeking a friend for the end of the world’

It is my observation that most of the movies that have come out in recent years tend to be classifiable in one of the following two categories. On the one hand there are movies that rely entirely on computer-generated special effects to captivate their audiences, whilst on the other hand there are movies that don’t use CGI effects at all and instead rely on a decent performance from the actors who play in it. It is unfortunately rare to find a movie in which good acting is combined with spectacular CGI effects. And perhaps it is just as rare to find a movie in which both convincing CGI and good acting are entirely absent, which I think is just as well.

But if for some reason you happen to be looking for an example of this latter sort, then ‘Seeking a friend for the end of the world’ will certainly not disappoint! For this movie contains neither the grand computer-generated special effects you might expect from a movie based around the imminent extinction of mankind by the pending collision of an asteroid with earth, nor any of the good acting that usually compensates a more limited production budget

This is a thoroughly boring movie. Unsurprisingly, the trailer for the movie turned out to already have all the funny parts in it, so I would suggest saving yourself a lot of time by watching that instead.

P.S.
I really enjoyed the outdoor theater in Greece where I watched this movie, you can find its location on the map below ;).
