14,000 year-old “Man from Earth” John Oldman is now comfortably hiding in plain sight as a college professor in Northern California. But his existence comes crashing down when four students discover his deepest secret, putting his life in grave danger and potentially shaking mankind to its very soul.
User Reviews: The Man from Earth is one of the most amazing movies ever, I mean there is no other movie of that kind, at least to my best knowledge, and more importantly the movie ended exactly how it should have, it was Perfect in every sense.
The Sequel was a good attempt to say the least but the acting and story itself was rather disappointing. The whole theme of the movie got somewhat disrupted, the original Man from earth was a complete scientific exploration on its own, there was a touch of mystery, facts, a classic debate over human existence and the Gods, where as the sequel was more centred towards John’s character, his personal life, and a bunch of school kids investigating his identity, no mystery, no debates, nothing new..viewers already know who and what John is.
So to conclude, its almost impossible to extend a movie like The Man from Earth, my expectations weren’t high to begin with but I watched it anyway hoping I will be proved wrong but of course that never happened. So, while I definitely appreciate the effort, I strongly believe that they should have left it where it ended.
