Storyline

Despite scientist Nathan's warnings, his boss continues an experiment meant as publicity for his satellite firm: exploding an asteroid. Instead it splits, and the major piece, the size of Iceland, changes course to earth. It is deflected but so close that it shift our course closer to the sun, causing rapid extreme heating, hopefully only mid-term. Nathan warns his sister, TV journalist Carly, and she her lover, police detective Tom. He brings his unruly daughter Kim, her ex-con lover C.J. and her mother, nurse Bonnie, when Nathan offers a flight to a friend's Arctic weather station. Tom takes charge of a dangerous trip to the airport, as everywhere on earth things catch fire and people fight for water, transport and sheer looting. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

There was a unrelated project called "Meltdown" originally written by John Carpenter in the late '70s, set to star Dolph Lundgren to be directed by John Dahl in the 1990s, but that has nothing to do with this one. Writer/director Rick Drew developed the story from scratch, had never heard of the alleged Carpenter script and received sole credit from the WGA. See more »

Goofs

The group takes a 'refrigerated truck' in order to have cool air for the engine and gas tank, but when they are driving away it is obvious that the drivers compartment is completely open to the rest of the interior - this would be a problem during normal use as it would freeze the driver.

One of the worst movies ever made !!!!
7 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would rather have someone cut out my eyeballs with a razor blade than have to watch this movie again. I watched it from start to end thinking it couldn't get any worse....BUT IT DID. The writers and producers should be slapped for putting this kind of crap on television. The actors are ALL terrible. Get out of Hollywood you fools and go work at McDonalds sweeping the floors and emptying the trash. Anyone that thinks this movie is even remotely decent should be hung. They are an embarrassment to humanity. To think we have soldiers putting their lives on the line for anyone that produces this kind of inane garbage. Makes me embarrassed to say I'm an American.
