Don’t wanna close my eyes, I don’t wanna fall asleep but it’s almost three hours baby… and I don’t want to miss a thing. This film does have some pretty amazing scenes (it’s one of Michael Bay’s better films) but the extreme length of this film and the cheesy love scenes (Animal Crackers on Liv Tyler) hurt the film immensely. If you can look past those two things though, you’ll find one of the more tolerable disaster films out there. Disaster films are my least favorite type of movies, and the fact that I’m giving this a “good” rating is quite shocking, even to myself. I do love Bruce Willis in an action film, I love J.J. Abrams as a writer, Steve Buscemi is awesome, Michael Clarke Duncan is the man, Billy Bob Thornton really needs to work at N.A.S.A. and I can’t help love seeing Ben Affleck as a whiny punk (which I am pretty sure that’s what he’s like off screen). Like I said, it’s not an amazing film, but if you don’t fall asleep, you won’t miss a thing. Just don’t close your eyes.
