Hell  2011 sci-fi movie

Running time: 90 minutes

Language: German

Year 2016, 4 years after the Earth atmosphere was destroyed by solar flares and most of the planet was turned into waterless wasteland. Marie, her boyfriend Phillip and younger sister Leonie are travelling by car hoping to reach the mountains, where (according to rumors) there are still sources of water. Marie’s mother have died and since then she takes care of her sister, even though Leonie, as any other teenager, is tired of it. With limited fuel and water reserves their hope is to find some on the way. According to Phillip’s calculations they have only fuel for about 70 km, which is not near enough to reach the mountains. They stop at the deserted gas station, but there are no supplies there. Out of nowhere a man approaches them, seemingly to rob them. It turns out that he has some fuel and wants to exchange it for water and tinned peaches. Phillip offers him that they will take him with them in exchange for the fuel. When they reach the mountains they are forced to stop on obstacle built across the road. While trying to get through they do not notice that their car was stolen with Leonie inside.

Hell is post-apocalyptic sci fi movie that explores the idea of Earth turning into desert due to being exposed on solar radiation that got through devastated atmosphere. The assumption made at the beginning of the movie that within 4 years human civilization has collapsed and practially agriculture ceased to exist is rather questionable - such increase of temperature would melt the ice caps, to there would be more water and less land. Not to mention that collapse of civilization would be possible within 4 years if there would not be any food, but since the reason behind that apocalypsis is gradual increase of the temperature it would give a lot of time to prepare methods of saving the crops from radiation.

Overall the film takes heavily from other similar productions (like Mad Max, The Day After Tommorow or The Road), but fails to create particular plot that would keep the viewers interested. It is graphically appealing, raises interesting questions about future of human kind, but at the same time it is based on rather feeble premise.
