Z for Zachariah (2015)

After watching the interesting He Never Died, I decided to venture into the post apocalyptic world. Unfortunately, my selection for that genre did little to quench my craving for that realm. That movie was the 2015 entry Z for Zachariah.

Plot/ In the wake of a disaster that wipes out most of civilization, two men, and a young woman find themselves in an emotionally charged love triangle as the last known survivors.

This is one that was picked up at Family Video that I had zero expectations for. Fortunately, that was the case because I really found nothing extremely new or interesting inside this one. In fact, the best part was the lush New Zealand backdrop. Slow and unmoving, this post apocalyptic flick is definitely miscast as something Sci-Fi, being more of a drama/love story. Yes, the performances were solid, but that could not so anything to help add pace or excitement to this rather non-atmospheric entry. In the end, this one is a snoozer and a movie that could have been left on the shelf.
