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!


Eve of Destruction Blu-ray



   Title: "Eve of Destruction"

   Grade: 3

   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.
