Hard To Take This Seriously
4 July 2009 | by sddavis63See all my reviews

I was a little put off right at the beginning when the movie jumps right into the story with not even a bit of introduction. That was followed by a story that was entirely unoriginal combined with the fact that to me at least it didn't seem to flow very well. The acting was at best OK; the performances from a little known cast a little too wooden in my opinion. The basic storyline - the earth being threatened by massive lightning storms that somehow threaten the start of a new ice age, with the climatologist Valery (Joana Pacula) being the only person who understands what's happening, but who can't convince anyone in authority of it - had some potential, but was burdened with the introduction of far too many "soap opera" elements. The most obvious of these was the entirely superfluous subplot, which was never well developed anyway, about the return of Valery's sister from prison. The science was also pretty weak. Everything seems to happen in a matter of a few hours, which seemed far too short a time to devise a solution for the storms and then to implement the solution, and then there was the reference to the last ice age having begun "about 2 million years ago." What? As far as I know the last ice age began about 100,000-120,000 years ago and lasted for about 100,000 years. Not a very good movie at all - but I have seen worse. 2/10
