Alas, this is just the same apocalyptic/doomsday scenario as "The Day after Tomorrow", but recycled. Too bad, that the goddamn politicians and the millionaires are the "chosen" people to preserve the continuation of the human race. Go figure! The acting is quite good, but many scenes are cheesy, cloying and ridiculous. I hate it, when a serious plot is mixed up or alternates with black humor, out-of-the-context romantic interludes and literally dozens of narrow escape situations. There are so many of these scenes, that it becomes truly annoying and too much to bear. I'd say that, many of the latest American movies are filled with that sort of junk. However, Mr. Emmerich has outdone himself in regards to the Special FX and Computarized animations. These alone, make the movie worth seeing!! The Special effects are awesome and fascinating! The best I've seen in a looooong time. I'm looking forward to watching the movie again as a rental, but purchasing it, well,....I don't know as yet. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt, when it arrives at Blockbusters. Five stars for the Special FX and only two stars for the movie!
I've been reading novels for about 20 years now and I've never written a review before. I say this to give you sincerity in what I'm telling you. This book is AMAZING! I enjoy investing myself into the characters and Marc did exceptionally well with all the characters. Stiger and his elf friend, Eli'Far have a depth that goes beyond whatever page you're reading. Marc slowly gives you background on each one that explains their actions, thoughts, etc. My joy from reading comes from the characters and how the author portrays them. I'm also a roman history fan so the similarities in the novel appeal to me there as well. If you need a good book to read then chose this one. I promise you won't regret the money and more importantly time.
