* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Well duh, it's a Creator/RolandEmmerich film. I dare you to watch the thrilling climax [[spoiler: in which a colossal ark careens through the flooded Himlayas]] and not enjoy it.

*** As pointed out by [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]], the average person would be dead by this point. The refugees themselves would need to be in the rich elite themselves, paying through the nose in order to survive the apocalypse and to have a chance to get on one of the arks.
