Don’t Look Up was the top Netflix movie in the world at the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. It premiered on Netflix on Christmas Eve.

Don’t Look Up is a commentary on the current climate crisis facing the world. It tells the story of two scientists, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, who discover a comet heading directly toward the planet. There’s time to act, but they are met with ineptitude and worse as they try to ring the alarm.

Overall, the reaction to Don’t Look Up has been pretty polarizing. I thought the movie was a little longer than I would have wanted it to be, but there are so good laughs, some good points made, and incredible performances. The whole cast is as good as advertised!

If you like McKay’s other movies, you’re probably going to like Don’t Look Up.
