The Quiet Earth 1985 ★★★

A brilliant Sci-Fi concept pulled off relatively well. Bruno Lawrence puts in a commendable performance, but the supporting cast are weak - Alison Routledge especially, who is often irritating.

After a brilliant start, the film's quality declines, yet remains an enjoyable watch for any fan of science fiction.

  • My thoughts exactly.

  • Thank you Dem. I'd really like to see this film remade, this version felt like a few more script revisions were needed to push it that little bit further. It should have become a classic.

  • I was actually thinking the exact same thing after seeing it. We're getting remakes of Total Recall when we should be getting a remake of this. There's so much a better director could do with this story.
