I just saw this piece of crap, and I have to tell you, it's a piece of crap. The storyline is cheesy enough to give you chest pain, the science behind the doomsday scenario is rediculous, and it's basically every Irwin Allen movie all crammed into one, with such excessive CGI that I believe this movie will be forever known as the movie that killed CGI. Between Transformers and this piece of SPAM, quantity of CGI will no long pass for quality.

Seriously, if you like to see things like L.A. sliding into the ocean, or the Yellowstone caldera going up, then see it for that, because they have at least three movies worth of over-the-top devastation footage. Beyond that, it easily replaces Twister as the worlds most expensive "B" movie.

I give it my Rev's Biggest Piece of Cinematic Shit of the Year award.

I'm shocked.

Can you PM me what the "end" of the movie is? Alien species? Un-explained force of destruction? Monsters? Also, what's the end point of the movie? Human race starts over?

I'm curious how they fucked with the reality of the myth, but not curious enough to subject my myself to that kind of torture enough to watch it.

God appears, and God is light,
To those poor souls who dwell in night;
But does a human form display
To those who dwell in realms of day.

Thank you, Rev, for saving me money, gas and plenty of reasoning against the boyfriend. Fortunately he respects your opinion.

Yeah people love them disaster movies.

I don't like john cusack when he's doing action though. He's a comic actor in my books ain't good for nothing else.
