I really didn't think I would like this movie, seeing as how it is just a long discussion, but despite that, I found it engaging and thought provoking. The twist at the end meant that it is memorable, and the concept of the film is interesting. I enjoyed this movie a lot.

An interesting concept but this would make a much better play. More of a discussion than a movie. Horrible production value and bad acting. Nothing is good in this movie but somehow I finished it.

A very intriguing subject, written with sophistication. The entire film is essentially a group of scholars having a conversation/dissection of this man's existence. It's done convincingly well, for a sci-fi story. The only main problem, is that this isn't really a film, but more of an episode of some sci-fi myths show on television.

This movie shows that you don't need special effects, elaborate sets, or crazy camera work to create a great movie. It might be just one long discussion, but it never lags or fails to hold your attention. I was surprised that the filmmakers took such a risk, but certainly didn't think it failed. It's one of the most interesting and intelligent movies I've seen in years.

This would have been a lot more exciting had the book on which the film is based, been read out by an actor. This statement is made on the basis that anything would have been an improvement on the film. Six friends sit around in a cabin discussing with one of their number whether he is a survivor from prehistoric times. And, er, that's it. Did anyone involved in this wonder at some point, whether this should have stayed on the page?

The Man from Earth review

The story is about Professor John Oldman, a scientist who summons a group of associates to his cabin one chilly evening, and lays on them one fantastic revelation: he is not a traditional human, but a 14,000 year-old immortal, who has survived centuries of evolution from the Cro-Magnon Era to the present. In the hours to follow, Professor Oldman's earth-shaking assertion about himself challenges the friends on spiritual, scientific and historical levels. But the most incredible part is yet to come A fantastic surprise ending!

This movie is composed almost entirely of dialogue but even as an action movie lover i totally dug this film and being someone who never watches movies more than once i can honestly say i would enjoy this one over and over. Good date movie :)
