Fck me, that was awful. I was going to watch Picard after but I’ve punished myself enough tonight 

 

no redeeming qualities whatsoever (ok, that’s unfair, the effects were good)

This was not good. Emmerich clearly has lost his touch for making these sorts of films. ID, TDAT and 2012 were all great, fun films. ID2 on the other hand was such a disappointment and this is even worse.

 

Its like there was no script, only bullet points of things that had to be in the film and they just made it up on the day. The dad dies. How? Why? Errr let’s just film it. We need a helicopter to explode as the rocket takes off. How? Errr well it errr flys into the giant wall of water instead of away from it cos it needs to circle upwards cos errr otherwise it won’t explode. There a gang of thieves. What do they do? They errr steal stuff for reasons.

 

There as just so many scenes that don’t make sense. The whole getting oxygen thing doesn’t make sense till it’s actually shown why they had to do that. No one knows when they’ll launch the nukes, cos even though one of the casts ex husband is the one launching them he doesn’t tell them anything. Except just before the climax of the film they somehow know they have ten minutes before they’ll be launched. Ok then.

 

The cast we’re dull in every scene. “I can’t swim” as slight chubby man struggles to stand in 3 foot of water. It’s almost like they filmed this whole thing on a blue screen and the actors had no idea what they were reacting to. So many moments when a character should be afraid like when there is a giant space monster approaching them fast and just calmly says “what is that?”. Even the disaster stuff wasn’t as good as the previous films. I’ve seen youtubers make more coherent films using an iPhone than what we got here and it’s a shame as this could easily have been a super fun movie that explored an interesting idea. Instead we get things happening to hit a bullet point or a trope with no real thought if it is even needed.

I'm hoping you had a few beers before this comment as I though a lot of the effects were dreadful for a movie with a 140m budget!

Lol! I needed it after. I dunno, thought the water effects were ok!

 

it also has the usual cliche disaster movie BS for the director
 

“Couple divorced and or marriage problems to save the day”

 

”chubs / nerd comic relief”

 

”cgi car chase”

 

”jumping over large gap”

 

red letter Media have reviewed it so that may take the bad taste away.

 

Honestly, I can handle a lot of crap films but I nearly turned it off it was so bad.

It is abysmal, and like others, I have enjoyed a fair bit of Emmerich's previous output. I really wanted to like this - after all, it's the moon crashing into the Earth! And yet that is almost incidental to what is going on. It's a disaster porn film with absolutely no money shot.

I was wondering how this could be the start of a trilogy, but it’s clear now what general direction he was going to go with sequels. Not that we’re likely to get them.
