A family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. As the global apocalypse approaches, John (GERARD BUTLER) and his family must embark on a perilous journey to survive and board a last-minute flight to a possible safe haven. A thousand years ago, the Vikings sailed across the Sea to arrive on an enormous island of rich pastures. They marketed the land as The Green Land in an attempt to recruit more settlers, and build a new civilization in a new world. Currently, the film is only available to rent for $19.99 on Amazon Prime Video and other video-on-demand platforms. But don't worry – Greenland is scheduled to premiere on HBO Max for streaming.

Directed by Ric Roman Waugh. With Gerard Butler, Morena Baccarin, Roger Dale Floyd, Scott Glenn. A family struggles for survival in the face of a cataclysmic natural disaster.

You can’t help but admire Gerard Butler’s stoicism throughout this overwrought disaster movie.

A comet of the kind that once flattened the dinosaurs is about to crash into the Earth. There is mounting panic everywhere. Newscasters cheerfully tell the public that the nine-mile-long asteroid is headed toward Europe and that hurricanes and tsunamis will follow in its wake. ”Within hours, all of the continents will be on fire.”

Building engineer John Garrity (Butler) takes the apocalyptic news in his stride. His one priority is protecting his family – his wife Allison (Morena Baccarin), who had been on the verge of divorcing him, and his diabetic seven-year-old son, Nathan (Roger Dale Floyd), who has a nasty habit of leaving his insulin in the back of the car.

Chris Sparling’s screenplay offers a determinedly pessimistic view of humanity. At times of crisis, everybody here (other than Garrity) behaves with extreme selfishness, violence and irrationality.

For reasons never properly explained, the US government has picked a tiny handful of families to be transported to a safe location. The chosen ones are given swimming pool-style wrist bands which allow them onto planes. Everyone else is left to fend for themselves.

If you’re looking for escapism from the daily grind of the Covid pandemic, you won’t find it here.

Director Ric Roman Waugh, who worked with Butler on 2019’s Angel Has Fallen, knows just how to marshal baying crowds and to shoot plane and car crashes. The visual effects and action sequences (fiery comet fragments landing on freeways, trucks turning upside down, crazed men bashing each other on the head with hammers) are handled with commendable oomph.

As a piece of storytelling, though, Greenland is contrived, nonsensical and very grim.
