The chunk which hits San Francisco was reported to be traveling at about 32,000 miles per hour. That's very credible for an orbital collision. However, the firey blob we see impact with the city was clearly traveling at about 500 miles per hour. Something traveling at 32,000 will not be seen before it hits. There certainly won't be any time for someone to hear a rumble (speed of sound is only about 700 miles per hour - anything faster than that you won't hear before it arrives). See more »
I stumbled on this movie after SportsCenter. It was on FX, so I stayed a few minutes. The cast was full of recognizable faces, including Ice-T and Mario Van Peebles, the king of B-Movies.
This was definitely a B-Movie.
I called up IMDb to figure out who the director was and he is an actor/director. That was obvious from the movie.
The plot was predictable and it was a combo of David Koresh and Armageddon, filmed on a low budget. The movie was enjoyable and Ice-T's grimace always gives me a smile, along with his silly bad-ass lines.
I don't know why Suzy Amis is attempting to act any more, since she's married to James Cameron-Titanic. She can do whatever she wants.
Plenty of the actors give you the 'I know that dude' feeling. I saw a guy from the Young and Restless, another was a character actor in every military movie.
Judgment Day was released in 1999, so it was probably filmed in 1998, when the Armageddon themed movies were still a hot commodity. That's the likely reason this movie was made. Still, it's an OK watch, though I did vacuum the carpet during the movie and didn't seem to miss anything.
Any movie that somehow brings Chicken and Waffles into the script can't be all bad.
This is definitely a late night movie watch.
(Like 90% of the actors that made it big in the 1985-1992 area, Suzy Amis appeared in a bad Miami Vice episode-Heart of Darkness. It's terrible that I just saw this on TV as I was writing this review.)
