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.

The Man from Earth review

EJ - wrote on 01/12/2014

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 :)
