Trivia

The Police Officer is using a Beretta M92 handgun; these handguns have never been issued to any mainstream branches of Australia's State Police forces (only to some special operations such as W.A. Police TRG - Tactical Response Group). The only semi automatic handguns they carry are Glocks, and Smith and Wesson M&Ps. Some Victorian branches are still carrying S&W 0.38 revolvers. See more »

Goofs

The film gives the impression that the northern suburb of Malaga (the location of the ice rink) and the southern suburb of Willeton (the location of the library) are relatively close together. These suburbs are approximately 25 kilometers apart, and traveling between the two in the fastest way would require driving through the (burning)Perth city center. See more »

These Final Hours
31 October 2014 | by fettenbergSee all my reviews

There are some special qualities in this end-of-the-world enactment. The main plus is that this is a large scale fable of the last days on earth that moves well. It never gets stuck on one theme, except the disruption of the leading character's relationships, which also signals the end of what is known about 'personal' life under would-be normal circumstances. There really is a fully owned dramatization of the total dislocation of normal society - & this is possibly among the best of such dramatizations. There is a faithfulness to the screenwriter's vision that's pretty awesome. Also awesome is some really good acting from the leading man, who gets convincingly tearful at the prospect of being parted from a 7-year old girl who'd become his charge through the course of the story's development. The imminent end of things near and dear is very well brought across, with hardly any mucking about in minor sub-plots.
