Finally out on Friday. Been looking forward to seeing it for ages.

Anyone else going?

I've seen the trailer, and it looks like any other end of the world movies.

Only so many ways you can end the world. Climate, asteroid, epidemic, zombies grin

Looks like my type of movie, and Gerard Butler's easy on the eye, I'd like to see it!

I want to see it, I like sound of the plot about the controlled weather system.

I do like a bit of Gerard Butler too grin

Saw it this evening.

Meh. Improbable plot even for a weather sci fi. Cliched characters. Not really that many disaster scenes. Most of the first half focusing on revealing whats going on through endless dialogue.

Mandatory dog being saved from death scene.

I wouldn't bother paying to see it unless you have a major discount or free ticket and even then.

I actually quite enjoyed it, but I had very low expectations! I wouldn’t have seen it at all except it was DH choice for his birthday. Lots of highly improbable situations and an obvious baddy, but quite fun overall, I thought.

Well I loved it grin but I absolutely love apocalypse/disaster/sci-fi movies and this did what it said on the tin. Yeah it was predictable and cheesy. I agree I’d have liked more disaster scenes but the space stuff made up for that for me. For this kind of movie, I don’t need clever twists and complex intellectual plot lines - I’m happy with setting up a disaster scenario and let it play out, predictable baddie, obligatory dog saving and all grin. Plus space!

I liked it too - easy watching & definitely cheeseorama grin I did laugh at the obligatory dog rescue - and 'cute daughter just hoping dad comes home safe'

I love a disaster movie tho, and bonus points for crazy weather!

We went to see it yesterday. Yes it was predictable but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the 3 strong female characters (4 if you include the child, and no way was she 13!). We saw the 3D version, so the effects were impressive.

I felt the same @Ewanwhosearmy about the strong female characters. Dana, the computer programmer, was my favourite!

Yes to female leading characters - my favourite bit was the female secret service agent in a shoot out with the bad guys (I hope that's vague enough to not be a spoiler)

Went to see this today. Didn't interest me at all. It was the same as those films on Sky TV disaster movies

An action packed film of course. It seems there's no ending to the disasters and improbable. But overall, its a watchable film. No complaints.
