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.

An excellent movie to see!
6 September 1999 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie I thought there would be no action but there was. There was gun fight, a car chase, and a father-daughter kinda feud. It was so good I saw it twice. If this movie is on TV or video i reconmend it. I give it an 8 out of 10.
