This is how Metacritic describes this movie:

Movie Facts:
Debuts on Netflix on December 24, 2021.

Summary: Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. The problem — it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. Turns out, warning mankind about a planet-killer the size of Mount Everest is an inconvenient fact to navigate. With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of an indifferent President Orlean (Meryl Streep) and her sycophantic son and Chief of Staff, Jason (Jonah Hill), to the airwaves of The Daily Rip, an upbeat morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry). With only six months until the comet makes impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and gaining the attention of the social media obsessed public before it’s too late proves shockingly comical — what will it take to get the world to just look up?!

Director: Adam McKay
Genre(s): Sci-Fi, Drama, Comedy

My Thoughts

I would rate this movie a 3 out of 5, it could have been better & I thought that it would be better, especially with the well-known cast.

This movie was longer than it should have been, and it was less realistic & a little more comedic than it should have been in my opinion.

This movie would have been better if things were a little more realistic & international, and less comedic; and those things also hurt the message(s) of the film a bit in my opinion.

The end,
