Early in the film, it is established that the continent is undergoing an unprecedented heatwave. Throughout the movie, though, people can be observed wearing coats, stocking caps, scarves, and long-sleeved shirts. See more »
Lame, poorly written, poorly acted, poorly directed, lame special effects, too many specific problems to list them all. It's a pure waste of time. Which is a shame, because if anyone involved in this movie had any talent at all, they could've made a decent movie from this premise. The only reason it gets a 2 instead of a 1 is the fact it's a sci-fi movie, and I'm a sci-fi fan. Don't worry, there isn't any plot twists or plot to spoil with this review. They do spend a lot of time trying not to get pulled into huge, but poorly defined, and unseen vortexes (sp?) (cue the big fans blowing their hair, clothes, and random pieces of paper around). Am I up to ten lines yet? There should be a five or six line limit, ten is just a waste of 0's and 1's on a movie like this.
