Don’t look up, it triumphs on Netflix, although the new viral film on the platform is one of those productions that either fascinate you, or you end up hating.
After a brief tour of movie theaters, Do not look up arrived on December 24 to the catalog of Netflix to warn us of the imminent arrival of an asteroid that would destroy the Earth.
It is the last of all the high-profile movies that Netflix has brought in 2021, such as Army of the Dead or Red Alert.

As a satire that it is, whose main theme (the meteorite) can be substituted for any current topic (virus, volcano, wars …), many have caught the not-so-subtle message left by the film.

Be that as it may, we recommend that you take a look at it on Netflix and judge for yourself if Don’t Look Up is an aberration or a genius, without forgetting, of course, our review of the film.
