Excellent considering that it's a German TV production
13 July 2006 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I really liked the movie and I was surprised to see such quality on a German TV movie. Considering other RTL, Pro7 or Sat 1 produced movies, this one was a big shot. Featuring nearly all of the great German TV and cinema actors (Lauterbach, Götz George, Elmar Wepper and many others) the movie had all it takes for a fine popcorn evening at home. Although the first part tended to get a bit boring, preparing the upcoming catastrophic events the part II was mostly fast paced and exciting. I also think the music helped a lot, also the visual effects guys did an outstanding job. However, I hope that there will be more German movies in that size produced in the future.
