Unfortunately, I can already guess the 'twist'.

More then likely it's a 'Planet of the Apes' style meme in that all through the film; you're lead to believe the planet they're on IS Earth - BUT, you find out it's a colony world humans from Earth were sent to AFTER our Earth was destroyed/rendered inhabitable - and of course they thought this new world was sake/hospitable; but things changed.
I thought the twist was they are not on Earth of the future but on Earth of the distant past.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
