Todd Russell’s review published on Letterboxd:
Disaster film with world-wide destruction caused by a planetary core meltdown that has John Cusack as an author of a novel almost nobody bought that seems prophetic. A biblical flood and Noah's Ark type story with animals and a scientifically chosen people to repopulate the species after most of humanity are wiped out are loaded onto the giant ark.
Directed by Roland Emmerich, the script science seems suspect, but if you can throw that out this is one heck of a popcorn movie. Pure action and great CGI. I've always enjoyed films showing massive tidal waves mowing down cities. Also the earth cracking, opening giant fissures and everything falling. If this is your type of movie, come on in, it's all here. Not much in the way of character building, but it is along the line of most disaster films. Recommended.
