Plane crash, subway crash, solar flare....
But after all, the supremacy of Beethoven's Symphony No.7 wiped off everything!
Symphony No.7 in A major, Op.92, II- Allegretto by Ludwig van Beethoven is a masterpiece alone.
Have you ever take a flight???
Put on your earphone and listen to this work,
riding high above the sky regardless it is a morning or night,
turn your head and move your eye balls,
look through the plane window down to the earth and you'll realize how fragile we are,
then close your eyes and allow the Symphony to rub your soul.
Knowing is not a successful sci-fi movie from film critics perspective and box office too.
Yea I have to admit the plane crash scene and the subway crash scene are well-made,
but the only scene in this movie which worth a discuss is definitely the final scene of people fleeing around where Nicolas Cage is taking his ride back to meet his father.
The scene is accompanied by Beethoven's Symphony,
the impulsion of music just seems to go perfecto retrato with the Armageddon in chaos and fear.
People ran around in the city, carried their food and boxes.
Cars and shops are burnt out.
Out of the fear to death and facing hell,
it's pity that human mankind can only scream and yell.
And if you look into Nicolas Cage's eye, you can feel his helpless emotion as an astrology professor.
This is the music I would like to hear if I would ever witness the end of world with my own eyes.
It's sad, it's beautiful, it's massive.
ALL AROUND GREATNESS!!!
