No matter how desperate you are for a new science fiction movie, no matter how much you like any of the actors, just do not watch this movie, they should have given the money they used to make it to a good charity and then I would feel like the human race was worth saving, at the end of this movie you pretty much think everyone needs to go the way of the dinosaurs, the people who gave it 2 and 3 stars were super nice, the only thing I can think of that deserved one star was the scenery

When I viewed this movie, it had 1 1/2 stars. In my opinion, that is severely over rated. The acting is pretty competent, but the script is illogical, scattered and plain shoddy. It will save you time if you just throw your money away. At least you wouldn't have wasted your time, too.

I liked the cast, hated the acting, cinematography, writing, directing, everything. I wish I'd read the reviews, first.

At the time I'm rating this movie there was only one review very unfortunately rating this interresting story only one star because it doesn't depict real science. Once again I find myself correcting that kind of mistake. It's not supposed to be real science. It's fantasy. It's entertainment. It's a movie, not a scientific documentary. I'm a self proclaimed scientist too. I'm an amateur astronomer. I realize that the sun, once it exhausts it's hydrogen supply and fusion shuts down, the sun would actually become a red giant star, initially swallowing the earth. Our experience would be intense heat, not the darkness and cold shown here. It doesn't matter. As Isaac Asimov stated, it's alright to be scientifically astute and still enjoy things like fantasy, comedy and just plain fun. This movie was two of those things. And it was enjoyable. I found it very interresting to think that one day unexpectedly the sun would somehow develop dark areas that would intensify and people all over the world would suddenly hear on their tvs and radios that this would persist and their lives would drastically change. Of course today their radios would just be filled with right wing blather and they would never know until the lights went out! But I knew that this picture had to be much, much better than one star with Kyra Sedgwick and Tim Daly in it. Actually all these actors were great, I just hadn't heard of the others. It's more about family drama than that science stuff anyway. And it was great. Glad I ordered it!

NOT science fiction
Verified purchase
This is not a kids movie due to the heavy-ish theme and definitely not science fiction besides a few psasing references to some solar flares blah blah. I was hoping for at least a surprise alien space ship on the end that would blast the entire cast as they came out of the house signaling an alien invasion and putting them all out of their misery but no such luck. The only reason I gave it 1 star was that I had to because there isn't an option for a zero rating.

This movie was just plain bad. The people are wacko. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. I wish we had the option to give negative rating's.

A 1 star Travesty:
poor character development. It really goes nowhere. To call it Sci-Fi is just way off target. double-Meh
