When I heard the concept of this movie, another earth that suddenly appears, I was inmediatly interested. The concept seemed good and could give place to a great story without the need of great special effects or anything, just a great script. Sadly, the movie tells a story that has been done many times before. It's predictable and the whole concept of "earth 2" is wasted in transforming this movie from "something you have seen many times before" to "something you have seen many times before... with a twist". Not to say that it is a bad movie, but I just felt that the whole Earth 2 concept was wasted on it, it felt more like and add-on than an important central plot for the story.
