After a collision with a comet, a nearly 8km wide piece of the asteroid "Orpheus" is heading towards Earth.

I don't know why,but I have a feeling I must apologize for my review in advance. Perhaps it's my senior age (I'm 73). But I enjoyed this movie very much. Great actors & actresses.Sorry folks,something similar to this could happen,I sure hope not.But it is possible.Don't push your luck.Who would have ever thought anyone could wipe out a city with one bomb.Ask a Japanese friend and I'm quite sure they will tell you,it is possible.Critique and critical are two different words.It is possible to to give a positive critique.But "Gee Whiz" I have a slight feeling that I may be critical of the reviews.Probably a no, no.I must try to be more liberal in any future reviews I may offer. However my daddy use to tell me "son" is you can't say something nice to somebody. Say something nasty.
