In all the craziness of the last year and a half, I somehow lost track of the movie Greenland. Turns out it was a bit of a sleeper hit (at least by pandemic standards). I watched it this week and though it's yet another "World's gonna end... Again" kind of movie, I found it to be better than the rest in its genre. Perhaps it's because Gerard Butler always seem to bring his quiet brooding "A game" to whatever role he's in.. Yes it covers most of the tropes, especially with the diabetic kid who is in constant need of his meds, which, of course, get lost and then found along the way. While there are plenty of CGI disaster scenes, they are mostly off screen (or seen on TV) and I didn't find them to be over done or "in your face" (I'm looking at you, 2012). So overall, pretty well done. And it performed well enough to get a sequel green-lit, which will look at the aftermath and the struggle to eek out an existence by Butler and his family.
