Well, you could call it another special effects movie, and yes it’s true. The particular scene where a whole city in California is destroyed withing 4 minutes, ot the one in Yellowstone National Park are portraying a very good use of this art. Of course, in the end people will survive (at least some of them), the hero will do something memorable and still make it, and earn everything, and people will find out that mount Everest is not the highest mountain anymore. Actually, a perfect solution for people who don’t want to spend their night trying to understand the symbolic meaning behind a particular dialogue, or the meaning of a movement (yeah,I’m talking about all those “quality cinema” fans).
But still, 2 hours and 38 minutes? Seriously, I can destroy the Earth faster, much faster! And remember one of the basic laws of movies: even if you can’t fly a plane, or you have just taken a 2 hours’ lesson on a small one, you may still hide an ace combat pilot within you, waiting for the right moment to come out and rock (let’s say, the end of the world??)!
Anyway, for those who haven’t seen the movie, go on and enjoy it, it’s a good alternative for a Friday night.
