King of the apocalyptic Hollywood blockbuster, even though his film aren't all that majestic. Big budgets and fun premises usually end up as dire and sentimental shlock, but his films are so popular they prove very hard to ignore.

Very mediocre action flick. Lundgren is a terrible actor that completely fails his part, Van Damme isn't much better and Walker is completely forgettable. The action is pretty dull, the comic interludes are misplaced and Emmerich has no added value. It spawned plenty of sequels though, but it's just not for me.
