Goofs

The same character who breaks a news story as the studio-bound anchor of a supposed major news network early in the movie shows up a few scenes later as a scrum reporter with a hand-held recorder. Though not impossible, it is highly unlikely that a high-profile professional journalist would fill both roles. See more »

Underrated - A low-budget cross between Armageddon and Hunt for Red October
4 September 2007 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

Although I had to suspend disbelief a lot in this, it was worth it because the underlying story has heart and excitement. The production values are low and the scientific merit is questionable at best; but the screenplay is impressively ambitious in scope. And although the budget was extremely limited, some of submarine, fighter plane, and nuclear CGI effects came off quite well.

This definitely kept me entertained and I think it's quite underrated. Fans of sci-fi disaster films like Armageddon will enjoy this if they can see past the extreme lack of polish, into the endearing earnestness and ambition that lies beneath.
