Thoughts on Radioflash

Radioflash is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie following a teenage girl and her father trying to figure out how to survive after an electromagnetic attack eliminates all electricity in America. Forcing the pair to remain alive in the deadly environment. This could easily be a film that is trying to capture the magic of A Quiet Place. Seeing the person travelling through a world that drastically changes. Not just the environment, but the people show their darker sides.

The performances in the film are good with Brighton Sharbino taking the leading role through the film. The film will fall short with the ideas that we go through, looking for the most drastic outcomes. Without giving us enough about the bigger picture about what is happening, as well as teasing the idea of a potential sequel.
