    Is it just me or does this look epically bad?

    Looks like a deep impact rehash but worse. I thought Gerard Buttler would have learnt his lesson from that awful geostorm film he did not to go anywhere near that genre again.

    It's not supposed to be Citizen Kane or Trois couleurs, you switch your brain off and enjoy the cheesy chaos whilst laughing at the 'science'.

    Exactly, there's a reason Armageddon, Avatar etc. did well at the box office.

    I actually quite liked Geostorm as a film because it's easy watching so will look forward to watching this as well.

    I love a good disaster movie. I've watched 2012, Day After Tomorrow amongst others dozens of times.

    I’ll go and see this. Yes it’ll be crap but I like switching my brain off at the cinema.

    Like I’ve always said with these films, the build up to the disaster and the actual event is the best bit. The aftermath part always feels a bit meh.

    I couldn't agree more, robfosters. Same with zombie movies. The fall is great, the aftermath is usually fairly dull.
