Although released in 2011, the breakdown of society and the brutality towards immigrants is prescient of what is happening in the UK as it heads towards Brexit, with the rise in authoritarianism.
On the subject of the film, it is an early one of a long series of environmental disaster movies with extreme theories of climatic Armageddon being used to good effect.
The characters are beautifully cliched, the ignored scientist, the corporate environmentalist who comes good, the evil corporate boss, bad oil company, the good wife, the petulant daughter, the rich grandfather, the nice Italian student: all rolled into cliched relationships.
Saying all that, it wasted a Sunday afternoon perfectly well, but it's not something to watch and rewatch.
