Awful, just so utterly awful, you'd think the film-makers were about to throw couple of thousand dollars on a fire, and then thought to make this instead. As a joke. I just can't believe that the actors could keep a straight face throughout all of this.
The only thing I learnt from this movie is that all satellites make bleepy noises in orbit when they're being accessed.
The rogue mega-laser tearing up a street and a couple of buses was pretty funny, but the best humour comes when the plane is coming almost at street level over the city, people are running terrified, and a young woman stops to look over her shoulder. And we get a close up. She has a look on her face like she has mild indigestion. And then she continues running. Class.
If they'd pitched this as a comedy I might actually have bought it!
