Rim of the World (2019)




Critic Consensus: Rim of the World is too bland to live up to the 80s teen adventures it references, and too full of clichés to be able to set itself apart from them.

Movie Info

Summer camp at Rim of the World has barely begun when four misfit teenagers--Alex, ZhenZhen, Dariush, and Gabriel--find they've got bigger problems to face than learning how to canoe and climb ropes when aliens suddenly invade the planet. Alone in a campground once teeming with people, the kids are unexpectedly entrusted with a key that carries the secret to stopping the invasion. Without any adults or electronics to help guide the way, it's clear what they must do: band together, conquer their fears, and save the world. An epic action-adventure directed by McG (Charlie's Angels).

Its greatest value is probably in how it could educate budding movie-lovers on cheesy and predictable storytelling, but even that seems like a lesson Rim of the World cynically teaches at an elementary level.

Films aren't just a collection of sensation-grabbing set-pieces - they have rules to engage with your brain, and viewers need someone to connect with.

January 8, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A grating, painfully awful movie that seems to work against everything that makes movies of this ilk so entertaining.

McG's Rim of the World is solid proof that sometimes scripts need to be analyzed. And some directions must certainly be stopped. [Full review in Spanish].

July 2, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Rim of the World is a spectacular failure at being the kind of early teen sci-fi adventure jaunt they just don't make anymore.

June 18, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

It doesn't have great pretensions: It is raw, picaresque, and it presents extremely absurd scenes, but that work well within the convention that McG has created. [Full Review in Spanish]
