The ending is quite trippy as it appears they have landed on a cartoon planet. In the meantime there's lots of God picking good white Christians to go to this weird world. I can't exactly figure out why God was punishing us this time. Maybe it was because of the godless Russians. He certainly wasn't picky about women who cheat on their fiancees.
La Terre devant être détruite par la collision avec un astre mort, des savants construisent en hâte une fusée interplanétaire pour sauver quelques spécimens de la race humaine ..... Un film SF de qualité !
A sci-fi classic, but the science is well dodgy*. The socio-political aspects are good though. Still worth a watch, even if the ending is ridiculous.
* = How can a planet (ejected from another system, having travelled through interstellar space, through our solar system, and towards Earth) be in any way habitable by the time it reaches us? Simple: you get a Hollywood script writer to make it so.
