Apocalypse Island: an Histo...

Warning: our economic syste...

The economically developed countries are not realizing that they are reaching a point of no economic sustainability.

From a cinematographic point of view I have no concerns: it is a good movie, well built, with decent special effects and good picture. What disappointed me a little bit, however, was the comparison with the [...]
