Storyline

When photographer Jake Lowe gets gets a cryptic message from an old friend, he follows its instructions leading him to a remote research station in the Sierra mountains. After doing some snooping around, he learns a terrible secret: a giant comet will be passing next to the Earth, unleashing earthquakes, volcanoes, meteor strikes and other natural disasters that will destroy the world as we know it. Somehow, Lowe must get the word out and warn people of the coming catastrophe, but even if he succeeds, will it make any difference? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Can't believe I stopped watching it
31 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

What a bad reccomendation! I started watching the first 20 minutes of it, and I just couldn't take the horrible acting, production value (CAMERA!!), and SCRIPT!!! And everything else... It looks like a shabby made-for TV episode, without spirit or feel. Cliche American characters make this one a movie to stop watching 20 minutes in... because I sometimes feel like my life has been wasted. At least it was only wasted for 20 minutes or so instead of a couple hours.

I don't care if this movie has some cool ideas, like asteroids hitting Earth and people living underground. It is done horribly, so it doesn't get any points outta me. If I feel my time has been wasted, how can a movie be at all good?

Yeah, this is definetly a direct-to-video release, and am surprised a person like Dennis Hopper would voluntarily be in this movie. Is he friends with the scriptwriter or something?????
