I normally find Radio Times ratings are pretty much what I would give but I am open mouthed at this. This film has to be one of the shi*test films I have ever seen.
Thatís where youíre going wrong - RT ratings are almost as much a joke as the old Leslie Halliwell ones were. He pretty much hated anything made from the 70s onwards and RT seemingly randomly pluck a number out of the air between one and five so both are equally worthless.
However this is a rare occasion where they got it right. TDAT is Emmerichís best film and one of the best disaster movies. Endlessly rewatchable (as is 2012 for itís lunatic excess in every department).
