Goofs

The premise of the movie is incorrect. The ozone layer blocks harmful ultraviolet light, which is a very important function to most life on this planet, but is not a barrier preventing the cold of the mesosphere from reaching the ground. Ozone is an oxygen molecule with three oxygen atoms rather than two, and the photochemical reaction of oxygen to ozone and back is what absorbs the UV wavelength energy. The ozone layer is between 12 and 19 miles above the earth, but if it were compressed to the atmospheric pressure at sea level, it would only be about 3 millimeters thick. The danger in a "rift" or hole in the ozone layer is rapid sunburn and possible genetic damage. During some years there is a hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica; during other years it isn't there, and during yet other years it spans the entire Antarctic. See more »

Funny for all the wrong reasons.
9 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

First of all, let me start by saying that 1 star is more generous than I'd like to be, however I'll award that one star for the comedy of errors.

Who did the research for this movie? Honestly - giving insulin to a person with low blood sugar (a dangerous thing for somebody to learn from a movie) and that complete nonsense about the mesosphere falling. I doubt if it was a school kid because they are generally more educated than this. It scored an F minus on the science.

The Australian accents were either fake or overdone. The direction was abysmal. What an embarrassment for the local emergency services to be involved in this movie.

The acting was high-school grade for the most part. They obviously had a couple of professional actors.

The special effects looked like something out of the old Batman TV series or Power Rangers.

To think that I paid money for this. It's honestly challenging the position of Santa Claus conquers the Martians as worst movie yet.

When it gets to the stage where you're laughing at how amateurish a movie is, it's just not worth it.
