This has to be the WORST disaster movie I have ever seen.
Plot run through
One guy and his girlfriend head to a friend's, Turk from scrubs, penthouse in LA for a party. During the night they wake up to a blue light outside the window. It turns out if you look at the light your face seems to burn. If only they all did at the start to avoid the inevitable downward spiral into chaos. Unsurprisingly the blue light is from an alien intelligence which decide to wipe out the human race, to be honest just the film's director and producer will do. For some reason at the end of the film the director and writers thought they were doing so well they deemed it necessary for the story to be left open for a sequence and for the love of all of mankind I hope this never EVER happens
At no point at the start of the film is any character depth build up, instead a rather shaky and stereotypical character set is built up. As a result as the characters get killed off throughout the film you cheer with joy as that signals you getting closer to the end of film, even Turk. The poor acting from the entire cast did manage to keep the "shocked/scared" face for their entire roles even if another facial expression was required. The CGIs are of a good standard but not world leading but that is not enough to make this film watchable and I advise avoiding this film and hope it disappears into the pages of history.
Summary: If only 0 stars were possible
