Spoilers ahead, don’t read if you plan to see this movie. There Mr. Movie Industry, Sir — I went to the movies to see this one with some friends. I was kind of exited to go see it even though I knew the story would suck.
I wanted the boom and the bang and that’s what I got. Come to think of it, I’ve just seen the movie and I can’t remember the story, the cast was good — no complaints there. Back to the story; something about the sun and stuff in the earths core acting like microwaves heating up our precious planet at an alarming speed.
People with enough money could buy a ticket and go on huge arcs filled with people and animals. 1.000.000.000 per ticket not in Dollars but in Euros. Every one got soft and allowed more people to come aboard the ships and they went to Africa because most of it was untouched by disaster. I initially thought that the ships would be space ships since they looked like space ships in the trailer. No, they were just beefed up cruise liners for the obscenely rich and all those who got a trip for free. The world didn’t end and in the end even the sun came out. The hero got back with his wife after the undramatic death of her new husband. The world got a bit flooded, was it the ultimate disaster movie? No. I think it’ll do quite well anyway. The over all score on Metacritic is 51 out of a hundred, I’ll add about 15 to the score — 66 out of a hundred.
