Unconvincing acting and special effects detract from a mediocre plot
2 September 2000 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

Actually the movie isn't that bad. The special effects are, for the most part, unconvincing. The movie seems to steal ideas from other movies in this genre, namely Deep Impact. The drunken pilot is practically a clone of Randy Quaid's character in Independence Day. One of the final scenes where the scientist gets trapped outside to die is shot strangely. As the unlucky bystanders watch the select few head down the elevator (which looks more like an outhouse), their facial expressions reminded me of Night of the Living Dead. Instead of hurrying to the elevator shaft to save themselves, they look catatonic. Only as the elevator doors begin to close do they scramble for their own lives. I made a mistake and paid to rent this as a new release.
