David's Review of It's a Disaster
It's a Disaster(2013)
It is the end of the world...again. A group of yuppies drink, debate, fornicate while awaiting their fate. Nice to see Julia Stiles back in a lead role. The film is quirky without being annoying and coming after 2012 Steve Carrell flop, Seeking A Friend for the End of the World, easy to see why it did not connect to audiences this Spring. People want Roland Emmerich or Michael Bay presenting the end of mankind with lots of F/X - in this one, people change which is too introspective for the fast edit movie-goer today. The group question if its the North Koreans or judgment from God as they toast to their demise over a glass of rat poisoned merlot. Too though provoking and no scenes of California slipping into the Pacific or meteors taking out Paris.
