He avoids everyone and only comes out sporadically to scavenge for supplies. Others, like the constant bickering between The Man and The Boy just get annoying and should have been trimmed. [NOTE: With the film finally coming to DVD, here’s a reposting of our review of the sci-fi film Edge of Extinction] Filmed in a suitably grim and grey aesthetic, Edge of Extinction is set 15 years after a global apocalypse, with mankind is on the verge of extinction. They are Mad Max War Boys-esque in parts of their aesthetic and it initially is very intriguing especially when first introduced to these savages who brutally murder a lone wonderer.
Fifteen years till mankind is back to cannibalism seems optimistic actually. Not much of a life but it’s kept him alive. It is the not knowing who they are or much about them that gives it an air of mystery and with it fear.
Some, such as the flashbacks to the early stages of the collapse, work. A very Walking–Dead-sans-zombies take on the ravaged wasteland in the wake of World War III, this film likewise relies on its characters to keep things interesting. FILM DESCRIPTION - 15 years after World War III, the nuclear winter is over, but mankind is on the verge of extinction.
How these characters meet and progress is at odds of what we are made to believe about Hobson’s character and his mentality. It’s also frequently bloody with everything from throat-slitting to disembowellings.

Edge of Extinction Review SUMMARY Any film that explores a post-apocalyptic Britain is going to have an element of intrigue but this is not the film to deliver on that.
That changes when he stumbles across The Girl (Georgie Smibert, Cleavers: Killer Clowns) and offers her shelter.
You want to feel that urge to will these characters on and survive but it just isn’t there.
Edge of Extinction, like Anthropocene, sees the world ending not with grand Road Warrior style battles or hordes of zombies.It’s individuals, small groups and gangs fighting the odds and each other for survival.
It already feels very longwinded which is not helped by lacklustre performances. Title - Edge of Extinction - aka The Brink (2020) Director - Andrew Gilbert (Infected) Cast - Luke Hobson, Georgie Smibert, Chris Kaye Plot - 15 years after the devastation of World War 3, a group of survivors must fend for their lives on a daily basis as they battle the elements, the lands and… Edge of Extinction is available in the US from Indie Rights and the UK from Lightbulb Film Distribution.
That battle, which takes up the film’s last half-hour sees our three leads plus the house’s owners The Husband (Nicholas Chambers) and The Wife (Susan Lee Burton, Pandamonium, The Haunting of Molly Bannister) take on The Chief and his crew manages to pull out a couple of unexpected turns to end things on.
There is no further exploration or development of how the world became what it is and expanding on this, even in a small way, and that WWIII has been and gone would have served the film well.
The filmmakers made good use of deserted buildings in and around Bedfordshire. Any film that explores a post-apocalyptic Britain is going to have an element of intrigue but this is not the film to deliver on that. Which makes it feel odd that the final battle takes place in a country home that has somehow managed to survive seemingly unscathed.
