Its a surprise Emmerich got work after this.
3 September 1999 | by (England) – See all my reviews



This film is BAD. All the ingredients that add up to make a good film are lacking here, the script - terrible, the acting? - worse. And if you can find a worse director doing (financially) well in Hollywood, I applaud you.
