AE: Apocalypse Earth


Date Watched: 6/25/15

Starring: Adrian Paul, Richard Grieco

Plot: A group of refugees from Earth work to survive on a hostile alien planet.


  • Unspecial effects
  • Predator cliches (including invisible people)
  • Picking up random people
  • “Why should I follow you?”
  • Canned sounds


  • “Couldn’t you find anything bigger?”  –  “It’s bigger than yours.”  –  “That’s what your momma said.”
  • “Are you sure this water is safe?  Most of the water on Earth is polluted.”
  • “But there’s only two of us, and you’re not my type.”
  • “I’d be happy to assist by digging a grave for Hannah.”
  • “If we’re going to save humanity, we’ve got to stay human.  We’re going to bury her.”
  • “Why should I follow you?”

Viewer Quotes

  • “Apparently they found a woman.”
  • “That’s why you can never trust short people.”

What We Learned

  • When you crash-land on an alien world, rub mud on your face.  It’s common knowledge.
  • Signaling with two fingers means “When I duck, throw a knife in this guy’s face.”
  • On alien worlds, you can go into nature to collect bottles of water from the trees.
  • It’s a good idea to arm yourself with bows but no arrows.  You can find arrows just lying around.
  • Real guns can be made to fire electrical pulses.

Final Take: That was basically a made for Sci Fi tv movie.  I remember liking the Highlander TV show back in the day that this Adrian Paul starred in, but he has literally done nothing since then.  Now he’s in this movie and I realize why.  I like living in a world where movies like this still get made, though.  You throw enough crap against the wall and eventually something will stick.  This one did not stick.  Back to the drawing board, Asylum.
