Starts off OKAY but quickly turns into utter and complete nonesense. Being a giant fan of M. Night Shyamalan, it was an awful and total letdown. The worst feeling I had (or could ever have) while watching this movie was to not care at all what happens to the characters and that's exactly what happened to me. I so just didn't care anymore, I just waited patiently for the end credits. I thought The Day After Tomorrow was dumb for having a scene where they outrun the cold but in this one, outrunning the wind seems even dumber. There is not really a 'reveal' in this one but when you figure out what's going on, it's just totally preposterous rather than deep, profound or even shocking. Even more stupid (and this is something we see from time to time in movies like this) is when the entire fate of humanity appears to be on the brink, and yet the main characters decide to focus 100% of their attention on their failing relationship. UGH! I could understand if they decided to copulate in fear of it being their last few minutes on Earth, but to actually waste time arguing over who squeezes the toothpaste the wrong way is just absurdity to the tenth degree. If I ever find myself on the same crashing plane with the director, I'm going to mention that he still owes me $1.60 towards the breakfast bill we split the week earlier. The only reason I don't give this movie the worst possible rating ever is that Mark Wahlberg's performance is SO BAD that it's actually funny at times. "Could this really be... happening? " OMG!
