When the crumble and the stones take on a life of their own, a renegade radio host, a team of scientists, and a team of race to prevent the same 'force' responsible for creating life on Earth from cleansing the planet in order to herald the dawn of a new age Meanwhile, in Maine, another team discovers a mysterious 'Egyptian' chamber at a depth of 10,000 feet below ground. Despite the flaws, the characters from Supernatural, Stargate Atlantis, and Highlander did a good job of carrying the story. Go ahead, try that, you just may say something memorable that will be remembered forever. Other similar ancient shrines all over the world also seem to be effecting odd behavior. The science often didn't add up, the sets were cheap, the locations were unconvincing, the action scenes were boring, the special effects were mostly poor, and the actors often couldn't get their accents right. The special effects were so amateurish as to be universally laughable, especially the supposed windshield hits from rearward gunfire. The fact that most of its major plot devices are mere references to established real world pseudo-sciences, inelegantly thrown in there like quotes from their respective Wikipedia articles, certainly doesn't help.
The acting was dire, the sets i think where built by the pupils of the primary school that they had taken over. I give the movie a plus for trying as hard as possible to sty serious throughout the movie. If this movie had more impressive special effects and more style, it would be a superior version of the 2012 film. Oddly enough, the thread of the story is all tied together pretty nicely. I thought that was the most awesome awful. That bumped it down to a 4.
It is not possible to include or describe the unbelievable number of gross factual errors in this movie. Otherwise, you may get bored. Cheap, but a fair way to spend some time. But he must have been a really important dude because he made all the life and death decisions in Great Britain. Strong enough for suspension of belief to carry the story. Welcome to the world of henging! At least in the climax they actually mentioned a supersonic jet. Once again Hollywood tried to capitalize on the mystique of Stonehenge and come up lacking.
Then when I found out that it was shot in British Columbia but set in Maine!!! I never believed it for a minute. Don't expect 'Star Wars' from this and you will be quite entertained. Warning: essential cliché hero alert: The hero is a brilliant rogue scientist who's into conspiracy theories, lol. It's a classic case of limited talents overreaching. However, I thought I would give him another shot. Jacob Glaser, a once-renowned astrophysicist, now written off as a crazed conspiracy theorist by most of the scientific community possibly because he believes metal can be radio-carbon dated. This movie is an insult to anyone and everyone who ever sat through a science or history class in school.
Furthermore, it conveys a condescending attitude and the impression that if the world is to be saved, it will be done by an American. I don't think it can be stated just how bad this movie is. I agree with some others in here that the acting sometimes were good, but also very bad by some actors as well. I can't believe some of the reviews on this. This is the most complete list of Stonehenge replicas on the internet, nay, marry, in the wide world! This review contains minor spoilers about an awful film. The roads, signs, markings and even telegraph poles were clearly American. I have to have ten lines of text.
. It was only redeemed by the fact that it was so bad i wanted to watch more of it to see what else they could get wrong. Salisbury Plain in the middle of a forest with mountains in the background. You can see other shots of it and. I was only drawn to it because I was bewildered how anyone could possibly make and release a movie of such poor quality. This is the sort of film that is only good to watch if you're sitting with a group of friends with something to drink who all enjoy pointing at the screen and shouting at the hordes of incredibly obvious mistakes.
He didn't know half the stuff he was discussing. Overall, the plot was trite and boringly predictable. To put it into perspective, this was a low budget movie and so the viewers expectations should not be 'Star Wars'. Well, I watched this movie and its companion movie, Annihilation Earth tonight. The movie painted the British head officer of sciences was a complete moron. As soon as I see that an offering is written or directed by Paul Ziller I usually just watch something else. It should also be noted that this film demonstrates why American actors should never attempt British accents.
Good lichens, but it is just a trilithon. . But, look, we know there are more out there. Naturally, the plot was really silly. Join 77 other followers Follow Feedburner Email Subscriptions.
