Goofs

The reversing of the Earth's poles is a well documented fact. A debate as to whether the poles are actually about to reverse might be appropriate, not whether or not the poles will ever reverse. See more »

This Movie Is Absolutely Pathetic
6 February 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As a Canadian, I can only say I am embarrassed and saddened that my country makes such total 100% garbage as this pathetic movie. One would think that after many years of major productions, we could come up with cinema that stands up with the rest of the world. But it's pretty obvious that our film business is a total joke. The sight of Vancouver's perennial DJ and Man-About-Town Terry David Mulligan dressed up as a General, is so utterly hilarious and totally absurd that it defies description. Everything about this movie STINKS. Story, acting, directing, special effects----you name it, on every level it's got to be one of the most God-awful pieces of junk ever.
