The "T-scale" referred to in the film is most likely a reference to the real-life Torino scale, which is used to determine the risk of an object impacting the Earth based on it's trajectory and size. See more »
There are scenes showing the Shuttle with its main rocket engines firing after the External Tank has been jettisoned. As the Shuttle orbiters do not hold any on-board fuel for the main engines - that is what the External Tank is for - these engines cannot be used once the tank has been jettisoned. See more »
This is what I get for being bored on a Monday night. I mean how bad can it be, Steve Baldwin, Dirk Benedict (Starbuck, where ya been). I at least hope they were able to pay their rent for the month after this.
As the title of this review states the movie is basically Armagedon but instead of an asteroid we are in peril due to the moon and a fault line which has opened up on its surface. The Ed Wood reference is because everything else in the film makes me think that if Ed was still alive and had even the slightest budget this is what he would be making. The shuttle set kept making me remember the plane cockpit from Plan 9, except no curtain for a door this time. All of the effects have a Nintendo 64 look to them (even a PS2 would be better) or a rip from a Discovery channel special on space travel.
Of the acting I can't really complain, nothing great but nothing overly bad. I was excited at the beginning to see Dirk Benedict acting again but he seems to just come in and out of the film.
In the end I think I laughed more then anything, not something to get worked up about for sure.
Also, not to my country's credit, this is a Canadian film not an American one as the IMDb site states. At the end of the credits it clearly states that it is a Ontario-Quebec co-production (so sad).
