Rating (Out of 4 Stars): 1
Pros: Woody Harrelson as the burned out conspiracy theorist, and some pretty good special effects. That’s about it.
Cons: Where do I begin? Plot, cardboard characters, visual/audio assault of special effects/sound effects, terrible dialogue. It’s all in there. So, basically, it’s a Roland Emmerich film.
