Goofs

The dialog has someone saying "Set the missile to detonate at 32,000 feet" - but the computer graphic on the monitor shows it set to detonate at "32.000 miles above sea level." That height (32 miles) would be too far up to cause significant damage - it is beyond most of the atmosphere. It is also more than 160,000 feet, not 32,000 feet. See more »

Brilliant title infers a film with hundreds of possibilities, and they chose this one?
3 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Brilliant title infers a film with hundreds of possibilities, and they chose this one? everyone's into Y2K, it'll be an anagram associated with the year 1999 and let's face it -- it's *&^&^%^%ing spooky, eh? so what do we get? a half-baked testosterone fest with godawful dialogue poorly acted.

the "movie" bearing those dread three characters Y2K is supposedly about a U.S. missile in South America -- "We had missiles here?" the computer geek of the piece asks. "Duh," respond audiences. -- that gets a little bit kooky when it fritzes in response to 2000. (absolutely every other piece of technology seems to be functioning 100%, however.)

until an ending that takes forever to reach (you won't believe the one character's justification for his actions), we suffer through sheer stupidity.

if apocalypse does come with the calendar's turn, i think the time until then could be better spent in millions of ways.
