    Watched it tonight (Amazon Prime)

    Well, it's entertaining to an extent, but hard to ignore the huge plot holes/issues.

    Most blockbuster natural disaster movies of this century get terrible reviews: 2012, Armageddon, Deep Impact, Geostorm, San Andreas. The list goes on. I never watch any of 'em.

    But this one actually gets solid reviews.

    I think I'll check it out once it hits my local library.

    Thought this was horribly depressing.

    Not even looking at beautiful Morena Baccarin for several hours made this worth watching, imo. No reco here.
  8. She looks great.

    Watched it mostly for the lovely Morena, found it a bit better than expected.

    It's one of those films that, after it's over, you start going, "Wait a minute..."

    They were in the bunker for nine months, how did the unplanned for kid get insulin (or survive without it)? Somethimes with movies like this you gotta just say "It's only a movie" and ignore the holes in the plot.

    I found it hard to finish watching, even with the beautiful Morena Baccarin. It's just not very good.

    Better than average flick Hollywood normally churns out. I like the director’s previous work, so glad he got to make a big budget action flick that’s actually decent.

    Side note: I Have no idea why some folks watch a disaster movie and expect a comedy.

    I watched and it enjoyed it for what it is, but now, weeks later I am incapable of remembering how the movie ended.

    Closely follows the way things play out in the book of Revelations as far as space rocks go. I liked The Road better.
    That one freaks me out a bit more.
    The scene with the people held by Cannibals in the basement is intense
    Not to keen on being dinner.

    Watched it tonight. The first 20-30 minutes are pretty effective building an atmosphere of tension and fear. But then the film really goes off the rails. One illogical, silly plot development after another.

    A scenario like the one in this film raises all sorts of philosophical and moral questions, but the movie seems to have almost no interest in exploring them. It's not a terrible movie, but I certainly can't recommend it.

    I enjoyed it, fast-paced and pretty suspenseful thriller. Was nice to see Scott Glenn in it also
