When tragedy strikes... what do you see? Written by Excel Entertainment.

Most of the kitchen appliances and landmarks featured in the film didn't exist in the 1980s. A lot of them are from the 21st century, such as Dorsey's refrigerator and the buildings. See more »

Just because it has a good message, doesn't mean it's a good movie.
16 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

For starters, I am a Christian but I do recognize a horrible movie when I see one. During the first scene when you see the terrorist guy I couldn't stop laughing because I haven't seen overacting that bad since anything with Nicholas Cage. Also the cgi in this movie was some of the worst I have ever seen. Maybe it wouldn't have been a big deal because the film probably didn't have a big budget but the film makers decided to shove the crappy special effects in your face. Also the random scenes of comic relief in the movie tried to make the kids more likable but instead made it a wonder that they didn't get killed right then and there. Honestly this is the worst movie I have seen all year. To explain everything wrong with this movie I would have to watch it all over again and I honestly do not ever want to go through that again. What's even more appalling is that every review here thinks that its actually good. Just because it has a good story doesn't mean it's actually good. TC Christenson is one of the worst directors today next to Uwe Bol. But at least Uwe Bol knows what he's doing.
