A family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. John Garrity (Gerard Butler), his estranged wife Allison (Morena Baccarin), and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary. Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being leveled by the comet's fragments, the Garritys experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them. As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven. Written by STX Entertainment

In the 73rd minute John breaks into an abandoned home and turns on the wall mounted flat screen TV. When the picture cut out, he sees his reflection but his reflection is level with him. This angle of reflection would be impossible, as the screen is mounted so that it touches the ceiling. See more »


Nathan Garrity: My friend Teddy says your life flashes in front of your eyes when you die. I think it would be better if it did that while you lived. That way, you could see all the good memories and be happy.

Solid flick!
24 November 2020 | by kay-212-426616See all my reviews

In in very short words: If you liked these kind of end of the world movies from the 90s, you gonna enjoy this one. The main cast is pretty good and even the smaller roles do a good job. The story is pretty intense and has some nice twists and surprises. Story is a bit predictable und unrealistic at times, but what do you expect? CGI effects range from okay to pretty bad at times, but it doesn't bother too much.

Definitely worth a watch. 6.5 out of 10
