An Oppo Quick Movie review of "Greenland"

STX Films were kind enough to share a screening code to watch the latest Gerard Butler film, Greenland.
Here's the online synopsis:
"John Garrity, his estranged wife and their young son embark on a perilous journey to find sanctuary as a planet-killing comet hurtles toward Earth. Amid terrifying accounts of cities getting levelled, the Garrity's experience the best and worst in humanity. As the countdown to the global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven."
TL;DR: Disaster film with Gerard Butler!
Is it any good? Sort of. It's about 20 minutes too long because it has to explain the relationship between husband and wife a little too often for my tastes. So it slows down a film unnecessarily and it loses the tention to melodrama. But if you're looking for all the disaster film tropes, you've come to the right place for at least 98% of them!!! Also, the budget for this film is under $50 million USD and I have to say the special effects in the film are done quite well with all things considered.
So if you got 2 hours to spare so you can turn your brain off, it's worth a watch.
It will be available on demand (and possibly theatrically outside the U.S. this Friday, December 18th.
My rating: 2 out of 4 stars.

I've been wanting to see it, even if it is a bit of a brainless disaster movie.

@silentbutnotreallydeadly The US did once drop a handful of nukes on Greenland, but they were still attached to the plane.
