Jon Amiel is a well known and respected director known for his work with actors, so it may come as a bit of a surprise that he wanted to tackle a project like this. And he does say in the 'featurettes' that he wanted this to be a character driven narrative. And if you check the deleted scenes you'll see there was in fact enough material to make it so.
But something happened in the cutting room. The scenes that added depth to the characters were cut, leaving only the vestiges of a run of the mill catastrophe science fiction movie.
And it's wonderful the special effects people are proud of the work they've done but as viewers we're not interested so much in that as we want to have something pleasurable to watch.
And that's where this turkey fails.
