  • Whether Moonfall is so bad it's good or simply bad will depend on your tolerance for B-movie cheese -- but either way, this is an Emmerich disaster thriller through and through.

    It's like someone went 'Alexa write a really, really bad science fiction script'.

    In the credits for Moonfall, theres at least one astronaut consultant listed, but most of the film feels like a sustained dare to create the least realistic space movie ever made.

    Besides entertainment (the movie is boring and repetitive), of the promised distraction (obviously didn't deliver), Moonfall should be -wishful thinking, here- the end of disaster films as we know it. [Full review in Spanish]
