Did You Know?

Because Sander Vanocur plays himself as a news anchor in this film, a few complaints were received from people who believed the movie events were real, despite repeated on screen narration and text before the start of each act. Following that, CNN issued an order that its reporters and anchors would not be allowed to play themselves or any other role in a fictional movie.See more »
Errors in geography: The meteors are said to have hit at exactly 45 degrees north latitude. On the maps shown in the movie, one, Impact Site Alpha, hit in the Thunder Basin Grasslands of Wyoming, approximately 100 miles south of Wyoming's northern border. Wyoming's northern border runs along the 45th parallel. The impact in France occurred 20 miles south Lourdes. Lourdes is at 43 degrees north.See more »

Wow, this stayed with me!, 31 May 1999
Author: Chris Ratcliff from Leicester, England

I saw this pretty late at night, and it draws you in so much. The plot twists and turns in an amazing story that mirrors a real-situation, so much that I thought it was a real news broadcast too. Only the appearance of Q from Star Trek, and references to 1994 gave the game away.

The end sequence, from the destruction of the 3 meteors onwards was as tense as many of the scenes in films like Scream. It also showed man's darker side, and gave many lessons for the future.

It wouldn't work on the big screen, but on the small screen it is one of the best films I have seen in a long time. And that's saying a lot for a film of such small stature!
