The visuals are mostly fantastic, but the score and cinematography are fairly average. The acting at times is mediocre. The plot was predictable. Replace Indians with Aliens and South Dakota with Pandora, and you have a Dances With Wolves clone. Also, the acting was weak. This has been a bit overrated due to the visuals.

7.5/10

Did you see in the theaters again, or did you download the screener rip?

story, characterization etc etc are all important, but when you are completely stripping the film of its biggest strength, visuals/cinematography, it's completely useless to a) watch it and b) rate/review it. like watching casablanca on mute or 2001 ASO on a sh*tty 700mb rip.

Trying to get my hands on one of the only Wim Wenders films I've never seen...'Until the End of the World'

Quote:
The film takes place in late 1999; there is an out-of-control nuclear satellite in orbit that is apt to reenter the atmosphere at any time, contaminating large areas of the earth. This has caused an increasing degree of disorder, with large numbers fleeing the likely impact sites. Amidst a traffic jam, the impatient and disconnected Claire Tourneur (Solveig Dommartin) escapes the congestion by driving off the highway, is told by her Dashboard Computer System that she has left the Map Zone Database and is on her own, and subsequently has a couple of odd encounters: first with a pair of bank robbers (which leaves her in possession of a large amount of cash and a promised cut of it), and then with a hitchhiker who is apparently being pursued by at least one armed party. Claire eventually discovers, after falling in love with the enigmatic fugitive, that he is the son of a scientist (played by Max von Sydow), and he has absconded with the working prototype from a secret research project. Multiple government agencies and some freelance bounty hunters are attempting to recover it.

The prototype is a device for recording and translating brain impulses—a camera for the blind—and her hitchhiker is travelling the world, filming his widely scattered family to show footage of them to his blind mother (Jeanne Moreau). The chase continues around the world, the nuclear satellite is shot down, causing an EMP effect that wipes out all unshielded electronics worldwide, and the characters wind up in a hidden cave in the Australian Outback, where the recordings are played back. After the death of the hitchhiker's mother, his scientist father discovers a way to use the device to record human dreams. Several of the central characters become addicted to viewing the playback of their own dreams, while Claire's estranged lover, a novelist, remains unaffected while he works on a novel about the adventure. It is this novel, ultimately, that rescues Claire from the throes of her addiction via the power of words.

How about you actually read my entire post before jumping to conclusions??

First off, the quality was actually pretty good, the MKV was over 2 GBs.

Second, I had already seen the film, and seeing it again without being distracted by the insane experience delivered by Dobly Surround, IMax Screen, and 3D glasses, I was more objectively able to assess OTHER parts of the movie that its visuals.

Third, didn't say it wasn't enjoyable, but WITHOUT the amazing visuals, I was more easily able to see the film for what it was: an average and predictable plot without any characters I could really care about.
