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 an unrelated project called "Meltdown" written by John Carpenter in the late '70s, later set to star Dolph Lundgren and to be directed by John Dahl in the 1990s, but that project had nothing to do with this one. Writer/director Rick Drew developed the story from scratch and claims he 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.

Vancouver outdoes itself...
30 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Once again, Vancouver -- The king of schlocky Canadian 'made for TV' movies has done it again. Yet another movie made as a tax write-off for wealthy or semi-wealthy investors. Gotta hide that money somewhere, eh fat cats? As for the movie;

It was made to be bad and to lose money (for tax loss purposes) and on that level I applaud it. It's certainly a terrible movie and I have to hand it to the producers -- they accomplished everything they set out to make; a terrible money-losing movie. Bravo! Well done!

---------------------------------

The British Columbia Production Services Tax Credit (PSTC) encourages film, television and animation production in BC and is available to either international or Canadian productions produced in British Columbia.

There are four components:

The basic PSTC tax credit is 33% of qualified BC labour expenditures incurred after February 28, 2010.

The REGIONAL tax credit is 6% of qualified BC labour expenditures of the corporation pro-rated by the number of days of principal photography in BC outside of the designated Vancouver area to the total days of principal photography in BC.

The new DISTANT Location tax credit is 6% and is added to the regional tax credit for principal photography done outside of the Lower Mainland Region, north of Whistler and east of Hope, excluding the Capital Regional District.

DIGITAL ANIMATION or VISUAL EFFECTS tax credit is 17.5% of BC labour expenditures directly attributable to digital animation or visual effects activities.
