Great! For all those duped by end of the world scenarios, a must see!
1 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

This title was waiting to be picked up at my local 'Dollar Shop' and beckoned to be purchased.

With George Kennedy narrating, priests and psychics corroborating, special scientific effects, and an 80s 'end of the world' doomsday atmosphere pervading, who could go wrong?

Either way it's bound to be a fun ride!

But don't let the melodramatics fool you. This is a serious documentary which obviously had the budget to deliver an interesting (and very topical) message.

It's just the thing ordered for skeptics on the end of the world, with some ridiculous aspects (which can be taken as commentary), and some good information as well.

For all those who were expecting a millennial 'end of the world', a must see.

George Kennedy does an excellent job as narrator, great special effects, good sound track, overall a very interesting production which takes you all around the world and which keeps you thinking.

10 out of 10!
