Odd movie? Seemed like the people who made this movie didn't know really what they were doing?
Had potential but disappointed
(1 out of 5 stars)
"This movie tries to be hard biting drama with a message, but it got lost in a wilderness of poor srcipt and underdeveloped charactars.
The kids are annoying rather than lovable. I had no interest in anyone. We watched it to the end in the hopes that somewhere there would be a glimmer of what could have been.
Right at the end there's a good example of the poor plot.
The neighbours arrive to complain about the meteor and the main kid (who I cared so much about I have no idea what his name was) talks about how that started the "war of the metoer", but they won - no explanation of how, no footage of the war, just that they won. Why even mention this? Again, a plot line that goes nowhere.
Mike Myers didn't do a bad job - none of the actors did - they just had nothing to work with. This movie just seemed to be trying to ride the coattails of other recent Irish movies that do have good storylines. It was a waste of almost two hours."
