Storyline

Dr. Paul Sorenson, a noted astronomer, believes that an approaching comet will collide with earth based on his study of an ancient civilization's prophetic timeline. Frustrated by his inability to convince other scientists of the threat, Sorenson and a band of followers take over a nuclear missile silo. The FBI enlists the help of Sorenson's daughter Katherine, who is also a respected scientist, with the hope she can convince her father to surrender the missile silo. Katherine's research supports her father's thesis. She enlists the help of Paul, an FBI agent assigned to keep her under guard, in her quest to convince the scientific community of the imminent threat to the planet.

Disappointed!!!
15 February 2000 | by (Glasgow, U.K.) – See all my reviews

I've always been a big fan of movies where the Earth is at stake and that was the reason I watched this film. The plot was good and it started pretty well but half way through the plot begins to creak and the dialogues begin to croak. Although we do see the americans and the russians firing nuclear missiles at the meteor rather than each other (for a change). The effects looked as real as the lochness monster. If u want to watch astronomical fiction then I'd recommend Deep Impact or Armageddon.
