Goofs

Since satellites have to be as light as possible and the fact, that they are normally orbiting on stable orbits, their thrusters and fuel tanks are very small and only allow very limited movement such as evading space debris or redirecting. Even if all the remaining fuel would be directed to space, forcing the satellite towards earth, it would still take hours for it to actually reach the Earth's atmosphere. See more »

did i just pay money for that ?
22 January 2017 | by merpman-94402See all my reviews

I went to the movie as a way of waiting for my kid who was seeing a different movie, my wife came with me. I honestly was not expecting anything buy explosions, impossible stunts and a bad story. Boy was a wrong, what we got was 2 explosions, stunts that should not be in any movie because they are not possible by any shape or means in real life, and a story that was far worse than i originally expected. The acting and script were really bad to boot.

I guess they took the Michael Bay philosophy, i.e. who needs story and script when you can dazzle them with action and stunts, but you really cant.

I cannot make up my mind if most of America is really dumb in liking this stuff, or they just manage to switch off their intelligent part of their brain when they do, i seem to be unable to switch off however.
