There are no emotional reactions or dramatic impact just cartoonish exaggerations as a trail of destruction is left. This film was purgatorial and it barely nods in the direction of logic let alone narrative structure.
People become deranged lunatics and lose moral function because they can't sleep due to an EMP. A security guard steals expired pills. This was not considered or imaginative just ridiculous and grotesque and boring. Frances Fisher shows up. A son is unreasonable. This was hideous mediocrity.
There are unspeakable complications and bleary people. There are no escalating tensions. Things get negative and desperate. WTF was this? Jennifer Jason Leigh and Gil Bellows show up too. This was unimaginable tragedy done via ill considered approaches.
“No such thing as unconscious people anymore.”
