Disclaimer: Aside from the insertion of images, film credits, and tags, this review is being written by someone who not only was having a couple drinks whilst watching this awful movie (and therefore was likely not paying too much attention), but was also very likely written while having a couple more afterward. Why? Have you SEEN this movie? It’s awful! One would need a few drinks to take any pleasure out of it! …That, and my roommate and I thought this would be a fun (possibly funny) experiment to see how well I write after a few drinks. All the great writers were abusers of substances, right? And so I figured I should review this before the big day comes, December 21, while everyone still supposedly has the time to read this. This review will not be edited once posted. My apologies to anyone who thinks I’m a bad influence. Hope you enjoy it as much as I hated this movie!

tthe thing about thismovie is the fact that it’sa special efffects extravagaza. It’s not so bad when you think avout it, but, oh my GOd, what are all these goood actors doing in the movie? Thandie Newton, John Cusack…. not so much Amanda Peet., She’s awfull. The kids tooo.ffafwul. Midichlorians ruined Star wrars.
sd Scottch Korean Yo’ure’ a onctradiciton.
john cusakc is prettty okay, but whsi soopreman in hahndcuffs?
.,vkbn. ./ The special effects are pretty aweso e, but where’s the acting skill? I like dthe explosions, but that’s about it. I don’t remember m
There’s really only one reasno t watoch thois movie, adn that is the speieal effffects, whihc hare totallly inconsequenital 0r or so they say.
oTHER WISE the plot is so inconsequential, idt’s not even funnnh. John Cusack just runs around trying to get his family back togethr, and Amanada Peet just standsa round being likke, “No! I love the new guy!” But the new guy innevitably dies and the Jack Cusack character gets to come in anda save the day, so…. what’ts the point?
ultimatelly, this is just a horrilbele movie with horrrible leaps of logic that will challenge your belives about the world and how it will come to an end. It exists to stir up controversy, and if that’s the case, I’m going to give it something to be conseeuqnetial about, ’cause I just didn’t see the point. If theworld is somehow endinding, and you’re hcoosing this as your findal film, then… Idunnno, amybe you dserve it. yup. Sucker.
