Seen One, Seen them All. This one is no different.

I did not expect much when I dumped $20.00 to watch this and I got that and much less. Several RIDICULOUSLY over the top separations of the family and then their reunions which were unbelievable. Typical breakdown of humanity to its savage roots in times of disaster stapled into the movie. Focus was on the family coming to realize that family is the most important thing and time spent together as well as how that time is spent counts most. If you are eager to watch the movie WAIT until it hits streaming service or rental service. You are not given a reason to invest i or be interested in any of the characters. There are far worse end of the world movies out there.

An End Of The World Movie That Actually Got It Right.....Sort Of?
Verified purchase
I will have to give this movie one thumb up and one thumb down.
Thumbs Up/getting it right because unlike many previous attempts Hollywood had at disaster/end of the world Movies, "that wasted an hour plus of time sitting in theaters watching them and the over priced $12.00 + price for the ticket to watch the movie," Hollywood actually got THIS particular take on the end of the world RIGHT in the sense that "IF" something like an unexpected Comet, and its varying sized fragments raining down on the Earth actually DID happen, which COULD actually happen in real life, the drama that unfolded in the movie is socially, psychologically, scientifically, geologically, environmentally speaking ACCURATE!
Sort of/Thumbs DOWN in the sense that the damage caused by the largest fragment hitting the planet shown in the movie is TAME in comparison by what would ACTUALLY happen, and the damage in real life from such a tremendous impact would be FAR GREATER, and far more SEVERE, than how it was portrayed at the end of this movie.
Truth is, If something that large did hit the Planet today, not only would the damage be exactly as how it was shown in this movie but it would be far WORSE in the fact that after such a colossal impact various continents, "like the USA for example," and other currently recognizable land masses, would be unrecognizable and unfamiliar after the event because the impact of such a large mass would not only trigger massive Earth Quakes that would be off the Richter scale and mega tsunamis, but it would also cause tectonic/continental plates to shift dramatically effectively reshaping the familiar continents and land masses we know today into unrecognizable land masses and new continents.
Besides that slight inaccurate depiction of geological events being left out for whatever reason, "probably to give people watching a glimmer of false hope of survival," this WELL DONE movie has the entire chain of events, from the beginning of the impact right down to the horrible and terrifying aspect of human nature disintegrating as the reality sinks in that the world and civilization as they knew it will soon be a distant nightmare that they never will wake up from, was done pretty accurately.
As far as Hollywood disaster/End of the world movies go, this particular one was WELL DONE!
BRAVO!

Armageddon to the point, but this movie had a deep impact on me
Verified purchase
I'm so glad I finally got to see this film, and from the comfort of my own home. Overall I'm satisfied with the experience. By far the best aspect IMO is the casting, including supporting roles. Most of the visuals were nice. My biggest qualm is that I could only rent the movie, instead of outright purchase. I also wish there were more "money shots," but this was done on a smaller budget. If you're into disaster movies, you should get your fix from this movie.

A disaster movie without a disaster??
Verified purchase
Horrible! You watch a disaster movie to see a disaster, thats what makes these types of movies interesting. But this film is a total cataclysmic failure; because you never see the disaster. The whole movie revolves around a family trying to reach a save haven in Greenland?? You see a few scenes of small comet fragments bombarding a freeway, but you never see the big event. The protagonists are sitting in a bomb shelter holding hands and crying during the main event. You never see what you thought would be in the movie. The comet impacting the planet, the massive fireball shock wave, the triggering of massive tidal waves, the ash clouds obscuring the sun and raining down on the landscape, none of this is shown. What a rip off. I've seen better disaster movies on the SyFi channel.

Hey, not bad!
Verified purchase
I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the $20 rental figuring that’s the only way I’d get to see this film for a while. Besides, you buy one or two things at the actual movies and you’ve blown through that $20 pretty quick.

Glad I did! Better than I thought it would be based on some of the reviews. Love this genre of films ~ and of course GB is always fun to watch on screen. If you enjoy GB and like disaster films, I believe you’ll like this one.

Puzzled why no purchase option. Hope they don’t think we’re also going to later buy the film for an additional $20! Good escapist fare, but around a $40 investment total? Nah.

Rotten Tomatoes puts it at 72% at the moment. I’d give it, oh, 85. Something like that.

Boring.

I watched this as I am a fan of Gerard Butler. But thus movie is bad. The plot is very bad. Actually for end of world it is pretty boring.

Nothing new. Almost nothing interesting.
Verified purchase
I see there are already 41 reviews/watches. (41 x $20 = $820) So, the CGI budget is covered. Three people almost missed the crosstown bus during a meteor shower. It's hard to find anything new worth watching during this Covid condition. So, I forgive myself for this desperate attempt to entertain my family for $20.

Unrealistic - and that is being generous with the plausible storyline
Verified purchase
Will not be giving much detail since I do not want to spoil the movie for others. I looked forward to watching this movie since I first saw the trailers almost a year ago! In my opinion, if you seen the trailers you have seen the best scenes within the movie.

Seriously, the opening scenes (within the first 15 minutes) the middle scenes also around 15 minutes where the best scenes...

The rest was simply filler that really made no sense.... For example (this is general with no spoilers) the whole premise of meeting Others (not main characters) being both “nice” and “not nice” ( and vice-versa) was really not being realistic. In other words being super nice and helping out and barely ten minutes later becoming jerks and screwing with the main characters. - Umm just NO.

If you really looked forward to this movie ... go ahead and see it, but do not expect it to be five star.
