Life is normal for James. He works out at the gym, commutes to work, teaches school, picks up groceries, returns to his suburban home, eats dinner with his wife, and wakes up the next morning to do it all over again. Everything is as it should be. His world is peaceful, calm and happy. Or is it? Never one to think much about the future, James begins to take note of the warning signs all around him that seem to point to impending doom and the collapse of society. After considering all the awful things that could happen, James decides to prepare for the worst. But there is just one problem... he has no idea where to start. Enlisting the help of his wife Sarah, James embarks on a quest to be ready for anything without spending all his money, losing the respect of his friends, or becoming a survivalist freak.

A Workplace Training Video Production
15 September 2018 | by cncsurfSee all my reviews

The beginning started out quite well. The lead actor, Jay Bowdy, managed to present a feeling of impending doom with quite a few good supporting extras supporting his role as a teacher. Then.... They had to introduce his wife and the film fell to pieces. WHY??? Once they introduce her and the various people helping them become "preppers" it turned in to a production the likes of which we have all had to watch in work place training videos. After forgettable and ridiculous encounters there is one redeeming scene at the very end carried by an unknown actor playing a believable thug. I had never heard of him but I thought Jay Bowdy did quite a good job with what he had and the film would have been good if he was allowed to carry it himself. Avoid this movie and don't waste your time.
