The girls and I just sat for over 2 hours and watched this movie. The special effects were pretty awesome, but I spent a majority of the movie saying, "yeah, like that would ever happen". I mean, the limo racing down the street as it collapses behind them. The plane just making between the falling buildings. I mean, I know it's a movie, but I just found the whole thing a little unbelievable. In fact, it reminded me a lot of another movie, Deep Impact. They too built "arcs" for those selected to survive.
The girls liked it, and I guess I did, too. I just don't think it's one of those movies I would watch again and again.
