8 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Sci-Fi original movie channel has been a horribly sad joke with no inspiration, and this movie follows suit, though at least it doesn't preach as much as most of the movies.

Still, the story of a bunch of self important big shots making arks to survive a disaster, and saving their precious families, is a bit sick and self righteous.

The movie is pretty dull, to tell the truth. I managed to sit through it without cringing, so I think the present rating which is below 2.5 is a bit low.

It isn't a good movie, mostly because of childish writing and a childish plot, but it could have been much worse.

At best, I can say this is maybe the sort of movie you might watch on the elliptical or treadmill or exercise bike to pass the time.
