I still can’t stand Roland Emmerich (didn’t one of his characters outrun freezing air in one his films? WTF?), but I have to admit that this was a guilty pleasure for me. It wasn’t great by any means, but some of the sequences were genuinely thrilling and this time around none of the sentimental or preachy scenes made me want to vomit (thank you, John Cusack). It did what it set out to do. Whether it’s worth $10 and over two hours of your time is debatable, though.
