Shortly after being tasked to put together a list of the 10 best apocalypse movies, I realized that it wasnâ€™t going to be as easy as I first thought. This being Guns & Ammo, firearms had to be if not an important part of the plot, at least appear in the movie. Upon review, it was interesting to me how many of the apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic movies I tracked down hardly featured guns in themâ€”I guess ammo doesn’t grow on trees.
The task soon became eliminating those great movies which didnâ€™t qualify, either being pre-apocalypticâ€”the Terminator series, Soylent Greenâ€”those without any guns at allâ€”On The Beach, The Hunger Games, The Blood of Heroesâ€”simply dystopian moviesâ€”Minority Report, Blade Runnerâ€”or TV seriesâ€”The Walking Dead, Jericho, Battlestar Galactica, and Falling Skies.
What’s left is a number of new and classic moviesâ€”some hugely successful, and some you might not have ever heard of.
