  • How tense it was, how gripping it was...what makes this work is proper tension, pacing and characters. This has all of that in spades.

  • The result is a first-rate B-picture, and a timely reminder of the delights of well-crafted popcorn thrills.

  • The new movie Greenland will make you sick. And I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    February 6, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Butler's best star vehicle in years, what could have been a bombastic bunch of boulders is, instead, a refreshingly clear-eyed and compelling affair. One of the best disaster movies in years.

    February 6, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's as if the film knows what we know, or what we've learnt in lockdown. That even in the face of chaos and disaster on a worldwide scale, it's the personal stuff that counts.

    February 6, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • If you love disaster movies because they're a guilty pleasure, this one might offer some challenges. Greenland is actually unsettling, if you care to read its darker meanings.

Audience Reviews for Greenland

  • Feb 23, 2021
    The "extinction-level asteroid" trilogy that started with Armageddon and Deep Impact finally comes to an exciting conclusion with Greenland. ...or.... The "you're-not-invited-to-the-end-of-the-world-bunker" trilogy that started with Deep Impact and 2012 finally comes to an exciting conclusion with Greenland. ...or.... The "estranged relationship drama that's fixed during an extinction-level event" quadrology that started with Armageddon, Deep Impact, and 2012 comes to an exciting conclusion with Greenland. Did I miss any taglines? In all seriousness, this was a very entertaining movie. Especially in the first act which had some fairly intense scenes.

    The apocalypse as a social worker? And yet that angle saves this retread of 2012 as this details a broken family's coming together while trying to traverse the distance from their homes to Greenland, where there are underground bunkers waiting for such a probability as Apocalypse. Rather than rely on expensive CGI this keeps a cheap budget by saving their dimes for closeup shots of family members in the midst of struggling to keep together when the world has gone mad. Not bad.
