These Final Hours Review

There’s something about the Western Australian sun that particularly lends itself to an apocalyptic feature film set in Perth. This is the setting we find ourselves in for Zak Hilditch and Liz Kearney’s story of the last 12 ours of life on Earth for a handful of characters.

As an asteroid heads towards the Earth and the temperatures sore we follow James (Nathan Phillips) as he struggles with his impending death and that of everything and everyone around him. Adamant that he will not feel anything when the end finally arrives; he leaves the woman he’s with to go to a friends party and get wasted. On the way he meets Rose (Angourie Rice), a little girl trying to find her father so that she can spend her final hours with him.

These Final Hours is currently playing at Luna Cinema’s. You can get tickets here. Some selected other cinema’s are also screening it for a limited time.

Check out for more amazing content on the lead up to the events of the film that really build the world either before or after you see the movie. But for a little more of a spoiler free review, follow me under the cut.
