Blu-ray Review: 'Eve Of Destruction'
Ready for a little dark energy destruction? Follow us as we examine the new to Blu-ray flick "Eve of Destruction," out now from Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment. We review the saving of the world below!
Title: "Eve of Destruction"
Cast: Steven Weber, Christina Cox, Treat Williams
Director: Rob Lieberman
Rating: Not Rated
Runtime: 173 minutes
Release Company: Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment
The Flick: Not to be confused with the former Gregory Hines 1991 flick, this "Eve of Destruction" could have been just another cheesy sci-fi channel wannabe if not for the compelling work by the surprisingly believable cast. Steven Weber makes a decent distracted Dad, Treat Williams a great slime ball and I especially dug the inner struggle of the widowed Russian worker played with impact by Aleks Paunovic. This one does have some gamey effects and overwrought moments (plus the mini-series length could turn some off!), but for a simple Sunday distraction the destruction is decent.
Best Feature: No features, just a look at "Cat. 8" – good or bad you decide!
Best Hidden Gem: Again, I dug the sullen work of actor Paunovic – Canadians do it better!
Worth the Moola: I say rent both this and the Gregory Hines one – equal parts fun and fluff.
