3.0 out of 5 stars Great special effects but lacks originality, 19 Jan 2013
This review is from: 2012 [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
As a disaster movie this is very good indeed. And in terms of special effects it is incredible. The whole thing has epic proportions.
If you like disaster movies you will probably like this one. I say probably because it does lack true originality. It has all been done before and it has nothing very new to offer except the special effects.
If you have seen the movie The Day after Tomorrow, this is very similar.
The script is very predictable and at times the attempt to paint a sense of doom that awaits the entire world (except for the obvious hero Dad and the family he is determined to save) is very depressing.
Generally this is like a remake of all the previous doomsday disaster movies rolled into one with spectacular effects and a feeling that we have seen it all before. Worth looking at but don't have high expectations.
If you have never seen a disaster movie, this is a good version of the genre.
