Apple TV+: Finch Premieres on Apple TV+

We're certain why Apple considered casting Tom hanks in their original production Finch. He is undoubtedly loved by all and hence, making him a great fit for the audience.

In this movie, he is seen making great chemistry with a robot dog in the middle of an apocalypse, and it's exciting!


Tom Hanks is starring as Finch, who happens to be an inventor or engineer before the doomsday came. And now he isn't bothered about anything else but to keep his dog alive anyhow! So he invents a robot named Jeff to fulfill his aim.

During this post-apocalyptic time, Finch (Hanks) and his dog are the only survivors left (yes, it reminds us of The Legend). For more than a decade, Finch has been living in a bunker. But, just to make sure his dog does well, even after Finch is gone, he starts developing a robot dog who can take care of the actual dog after Finch is gone.

Soon enough, the movie develops a trio fun rather than a duo character play.

Finch 2021 Movie Plot and Storyline

A solar flare destroyed the ozone layer ten years ago, rising temperatures to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (70 degrees Celsius) and leaving the Earth into a mostly uninhabitable wasteland burned by UV radiation and vulnerable to catastrophic weather occurrences. Finch Weinberg, a robotics engineer, lives alone in a subterranean St. Louis laboratory with his dog Goodyear and a helper-robot Dewey, originally owned by the business he worked with before the disaster. Finch only goes outdoors to look for supplies when wearing a heat and UV-resistant protection gear.

Finch is working on creating a more advanced humanoid robot companion to take care of his dog after he dies of an undisclosed ailment [partially revealed when we see Finch reading a book about Exposure to Ionized Radiation... Otherwise known as Radiation Poisoning.]

Otherwise known as Finch provides it with comprehensive knowledge, including a guidebook on dog training and care. Goodyear, on the other hand, is skeptical about the robot at first (which eventually chooses the name, Jeff.)

As they near their objective, the UV radiation has decreased to the point that Finch may step out into the sun without protective gear. Before dying gently, he spends an afternoon outdoors with Jeff, teaching it how to play fetch with Goodyear. Finally, Jeff and Goodyear arrive at San Francisco, where they discover the city to be livable but empty, and set out to find any living people.

Ratings & Reviews by Critics

Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregation website, shows a 75 percent approval rating based on 116 reviews with an average rating of 6.8/10. "Finch may not be the most memorable post-apocalyptic plot," the site's critics agree, "but Tom Hanks is the absolutely lovely company even after society collapses." Based on 36 reviewers, Metacritic gave the film a weighted average score of 56 out of 100, indicating "mixed or mediocre reviews."

"The picture is a showcase for Tom Hanks' Greatest Hits collection, appealing to our admiration for the characters this actor has personified in the past," Gayle Sequeira of Film Companion noted. "Finch proves to be a nice watch," Sportskeeda's Richard Schertzer said, "but it often gets lost among previous science-fiction movies, living in their shadow, rather than accomplishing anything fresh."


Finch is the perfect pairing of an exhilarating storyline with great CGI and great actors which makes a great movie for people of all ages. So, if you are in the mood for binging anytime soon, be sure to open an account in Apple TV+ and enjoy the 1hr 55min of this Miguel Sapochnik's great work.
