Storyline

While the entire world watches the largest meteor shower in 10,000 years, a rogue asteroid, hidden by the meteor field, smashes into the moon in a tremendous explosion of rock and debris. Fragments from the asteroid, and even from the moon itself, penetrate Earth's atmosphere and make impact. Even though the initial damage is minimal, nerves are frayed throughout the planet. There is significant physical damage to the lunar surface, but experts quickly conclude there will be no lasting ramifications. Then strange anomalies begin to manifest themselves on Earth. It starts small - cell phone disruptions, unusual static charges and odd tidal behavior. The world's leading scientists, including Alex Kittner, Maddie Rhodes and Roland Emerson, begin piecing together evidence that suggests the moon's properties, and its orbit, may have been permanently altered. Their fears are realized when the anomalies increase to the point where the effect of "simulated" gravity is being manipulated by ... Written by Michael Vickerman

It really is rubbish
9 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Honestly guys I have registered with this site, which I will probably never use again, just to stop anyone else wasting their time watching this total piece of inane rubbish. it has absolutely nothing good about it at all with the exception that is was quite well photographed for a TV film It is a typical piece of American melodrama with no finesse or anything else that gives it any justification to exist. America makes some great films, this is NOT one of them. I very much regret not reading any reviews before purchasing it, I have learned my lesson. Anyone who was involved in the making of this film should be very, very ashamed
