good disaster flick
14 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

don't know why these people are bashing the movie,, it's quick, compact, precise to the point , in you're face unique,, original,, some thing new,, that i've never seen anyway,, highly believable,, i mean global warming,, ozone layer, pretty convincing stuff to me,, i thought the movie was funny, interesting, and set out to prove a point and it did so very well i might add, the acting was better than average, it ain't gonna win no academy awards, or Emmie's,, but hey what do you want here from a supposed to be b-grade movie, the parts about the animals acting strange,, the whales getting beached in groups the bees swarming,, the insects,, and the best is the Birds homage to Alfred Hitchcock,, the birds flying into the windows,, now that ladies and gentlemen is a cause to freak out,, and definitely think that the sky is falling. overall i don't have any problems with the movie at all, excellent disaster flick,, not overdone,, not underdone either,, so thumbs up,, to heck with what everyone else is saying on here.
