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 »
Ice-T and Suzy Amis star as two cops who team up to rescue a scientist, Linden Ashby (!) who has been kidnapped by religious fanatics led by Mario Van Peebles (!) among the group of fanatics include Coolio (!) and Tiny Lister Jr (!!) and the reason they kidnap Ashby is because it is only him that can prevent a meteor from destroying earth, with his expertise. They want to end the world for mainly religious reasons although they are easily thwarted by the "cop-killer" himself. One of the great ironies in showbiz is just how Ice-T gained fame singing a (admittedly catchy)rap song which expressed his overall unhappiness with the men in blue, now Ice-T makes his living playing a cop on Law and Order:SVU! Hilarious. However given his choice of terrible movies (Johnny Mnemonic,Surviving The Game,Tank Girl,Ticker,Gangland and Ablaze) and this is believe it or not one of the Iceman's better efforts. It's still a badly made rip off of Armageddon (Which also sucked) with some extremely awkward acting from Van Peebles, Lister and (especially) Ashby. Indeed the casting director had to have been drunk to cast Ashby as a scientist, also Van Peebles as a religious fanatic? This alone guarantees a couple of chuckles, however the special effects are so terrible that the embarrassing stock footage causes more surreal amazement than genuine hilarity. Still for fans of Ice-T, this is a must see.
