Second of all, poor Gwyneth.
- I loved the first half. The mundane beginnings of the catastrophe were fascinating to watch unfold.
- I loved the last minute. Answers are awesome.
- The second half overall though wasn't nearly as good as the first half. I think Soderbergh was so worried about making a cliche disaster film that the whole society starts falling apart section seemed a bit muted. Some of it worked, some of it didn't. And the dialogue is a bit hokey at times.
- Judging by this movie, all government officials are incredibly courageous and honorable. Non-traditional media on the other hand are all evil scamming liars. Silly. Plus I think the whole Jude Law plotting to do bad stuff while on a park bench was thrown in just to remind us how cool the 70s conspiracy thrillers were.
Overall, I liked this movie quite a bit and can't stop thinking about it. Cover your mouth please.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh
