A good disaster movie pretty believable well written
Always up for a good disaster movie, and this one qualifies. There’s a comet sighting about to take place which has the whole world intrigued until it’s figured out that large fragments of it will hit the earth; an expected extinction level event. A disaster of this magnitude has been planned for decades as the government have built emergency shelters in Greenland. Gerard Butler receives a call from the government indicating that he and his family have been selected for this emergency shelter and must report to the military air base within 24 hours. So to the backdrop of his friends and neighbors jealous and desperate because they have not been chosen, he gets his recently estranged wife (Morena Baccarin) and his son packed up and enroute to the air base. Between the panic of civilians wanting to be saved and put on the plane and mini fragments of the comet already hitting and setting fire to everything, the trip does not go smoothly. So much tension throughout this movie as Butler struggles to keep his family safe as the countdown of the inevitable comet strike draws closer and closer. Great special effects in this movie; certainly not a B-level effort. Kept me invested all the way through.
Pretty good movie. I liked the attempt at a realistic approach. Although, there's no way I'm getting separated from my wife & kid in that scenario. Worth watching though ... Morena Baccaro is easy to look at too.
Gerrard Butler is great, as usual. A fly-by comet/asteroid is all the news. In the midst of a birthday party, the news flash is that we’re the target and special folks are given instructions to proceed to a shelter. Butler grabs his semi-dysfunctional family and heads for the shelter site. Chaos ensues and the race for life begins. I love this movie! Buy this movie and find out for yourself. You won’t regret your purchase!
