It's terrible but I still enjoyed it
22 February 2020 | by Legen-waitforit-DarySee all my reviews

OK so bottom line - this isn't a very good film. That's mainly down to the special effects admittedly, but not entirely. Some of the performances are decent (Tom Schanley is particularly good and believable) but unfortunately some really aren't.

That said, despite it not being a good film I still enjoyed it. If you can ignore the terrible effects, clearly done on a very strict budget, then it's a fun disaster movie. Most disaster movies are best watched with your brain mostly turned off anyway, and that's the best way to watch this one too.
