Goos post-apocalyptic movies are hard to find, but The Domestics doesn’t disappoint.
The movie follows a married couple as they travel to find her family, in the weeks following an apocalyptic event. The only thing left from the world they knew is a kamakaze radio DJ who only plays songs from the 1950’s and ‘60s.
The couple encounter all different types of gangs, and learn to be stronger together.At the start, she is a fragile woman, unable to handle what is going on around her, but throughout the movie she grows as a person, willing to defend herself and her husband against anything.
There are a few really good cringe-worthy moments, and the escalation of events is totally believable.
Starring actors you might not recognize from Hollywood movies, Kate Bosworth and Tyler Hoechlin really bring the characters to life.
You might find yourself cheering for the bad guys, or moe scared of some than others, and I think the film really plays into what people fear most.
The anarchism is wild and realistic, and will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time.
There are underlying relationships between many of the characters in this film that will keep you watching and paying attention through the entire thing.
Between taking chances and cannabalism, and trying to find comfort and normalcy in a world turned upside down, this film is entirely enjoyable for those with a bit of a stronger stomach. There are a handful of gory parts, and some adult content that would not be suitable for younger viewers, which makes this precicely the type of movie I enjoy watching. If you enjoy a sick and twisted fight for survival, check out The Domestics.
I give this movie 10 out of 10 popcorns.
