Innocent and Light Sci-Fi for TV ...
11 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Given that this is a made-for-TV show, it's not that bad. It's very light and innocent in tone. The dialog and characters are the strength of this movie. No, they are not well-done, but rather just "decently" done.

Basically, this movie is about a town that is about to be ravaged with a flurry of meteorites. The earth is passing through a comet's tail and the town is looks like it's in the wrong place at the worst possible time. The movie follows the stories of a few groups of people.

The sci-fi element is present because of the meteorites, but it doesn't go much further beyond that. The story is pretty much a simple "watch out for the falling rocks" instead of "how are the scientists going to save us?" story. Nothing more.

The characters, as mentioned earlier, are barely interesting. However, mediocre as the whole movie was, nothing really got on my nerves. So as far as a movie that is barely sci-fi, that is sometimes a plus.

I don't recommend watching this movie unless you have it on in the background and are doing something else. For sci-fi fans, it's kind of like pleasant background music.
