Sean Walker sets out to find his girlfriend who disappeared from a Caribbean cruise only to find a global conspiracy that reaches beyond the U.S. President. With every turn bringing new revelations Sean realizes something is about to happen which will change the history of mankind.
Jason Ritter (Sean Walker), Sarah Roemer (Leila), Ian Dale (Simon), Zeljko Ivanek (Blake Sterling), Blair Underwood (Pres. Elias Martinez), Laura Innes (Sophia), Taylor Cole (Vicky), Scott Patterson (Michael), Clifton Collins Jr. (Thomas), Bill Smitrovich (V.P. Jarvis).
The Event is a bit hard to follow in the beginning as the timeline jumps around like a water droplet on a hot skillet. Once things settle down a bit the plot begins to unroll with Leila disappearing from a Caribbean cruise. As her boyfriend Sean tries to find her a conspiracy is revealed that will change the history of mankind. Later in the season the plot becomes more action based as several characters work to stop The Event from happening while other forces work to ensure it does. Sadly the first and only season winds down with a tease of things to come which never do.
Acting was good in The Event. Ritter stepped up well and worked good with Roemer who also delivered nicely. Dale, Ivanek, Underwood, Innes and Cole also did well contributing greatly to the series. Patterson, Collins Jr., and Smitrovich were good but could have had a bit more energy.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were all well done with nice variety and attention to detail indicating the film had a nice budget. CGI was mild but good while action scenes were numerous and of good quality. Dialogue was enjoyable with depth and breadth throughout the series. Sound and soundtrack were nice.
Although The Event only lasted a single season so it really wasn’t much of an event, the series was well done and enjoyable throughout. Sci-fi and action adventure fans should enjoy this one quite a bit but may be frustrated at the lack of conclusion.
With some violence, blood, and sexuality, this should be fine for teens and above.
