This is the story of the apocalypse, of when the world ends and all is over, and about one man (plus family)'s eventful attempt at reaching one of a set of hellishly expensive arcs constructed to cater to the survivors of the world as it's - after earthquakes and eruptions - drenched in water, in the final flood.
I'm usually not that big a fan of John Cusack, because of his being - I guess - so normal, but this is one movie he did a good job with. Maybe I just haven't seen enough of them. The scene where the plane flies off as the runway divulges into Earth, a crevice consuming airstrips, jumbo jets and even entire cityscapes... that was pretty pompous. All of the apocalyptic scenery the movie portrays was pretty pompous! And there was nothing wrong the acting; intensity either. It's a movie by the same dudes who made 'Day After Tomorrow'. This time it's a flood rather than a freeze,. but it's equally intense and apocalyptic. Good watch!
