Goofs

The grounding (or antistatic) straps which are handed out only work if they are actually connected to an electrical ground. Simply wearing such a strap is worthless. Some companies claim to have a wireless grounding strap; however, they have been shown to be ineffective and are considered scams. See more »

Great!
23 February 2013 | by (Ridgway Pennslyvania) – See all my reviews

I just got done spending a weekend away from going to the bar and caught this gem on the syfy channel.I have to say it flows great from scene to scene and the casts acting was top notch.The movie delicately balances suspense, action ,and comedy to create the right amount of formula to make it shine.It easily knocks out big budget theatrical release films which came as a real surprise and it did so by staying fresh.The cgi used in this film was great and was present when needed and not over done.A fairly reasonably educated person will like the story and be able to find throw backs with it without the film actually stealing any ideas but refreshing old ones yet still remaining witty and fun.Not to often can I say that a TV movie was worthy of a second watch but this one easily takes the cake.Now if only all syfy movies could manage to end up as End of the world has fun, intelligent, and a joy to watch.
