Goofs

A space ship that has enough mass to pull skyscrapers upwards and off of the planet's surface, should also cause huge disruptions in both Earth's atmosphere and plate tectonics, as well as in the Earth's very rotation. The damage implied in the movie is insignificant compared to what would actually happen (e.g. the seismic shockwave alone would measure hundreds of miles in the amplitude; the oceans would be evaporated; the crust would tear all over the planet, rotation axis and speed would dramatically change) and when the ship finally leaves the Earth, the planet looks quite unscathed by the "interaction".

Don't go to watch this at the cinema
23 June 2016 | by pmpodhorzerSee all my reviews

It has two good CGI scenes, which you can watch at home some months from now. The rest is garbage. The movie was cut in pieces that do not make any sense. But the complete edition is probably not better. It is BORING, and eminently stupid. Characters explain to the audience the basic plot five minutes after exposition time. It is an indictment of what film executives think about people. It is terrible. This movie needs to bomb, it needs to crash, it must be the point where the madness of the vapid blockbuster ends. Watch again any episode of "Game of Thrones" instead. Again, I repeat this point: it is not even fun in a dumb way. It treats you as a very slow person. You can feel the people responsible for this laughing at you. Make it stop. Don't go to the cinema.
