We gave it a C+

Margot Robbie charms as Ann, a lonely survivor of nuclear fallout who meets another (Chiwetel Ejiofor). Their relationship is tested, however, when a stranger (Chris Pine) arrives, forming a love triangle. The limited scope of the apocalyptic story could have made for a thoughtful parable about human nature and race, but the lack of drama and heat keeps Z for Zachariah joyless without much despair. It’s the end of the world as we know it, and you’ll feel bored. C+
