Extremely Terrible
19 July 2009 | by (Tigard, Oregon) – See all my reviews

First of all I am a 53 year old science fiction buff/veteran, I have seen them all - US and European A and B sci-fi drive in movies. You're not going to get it any straighter than from me.

"Meteor" (2009) with Jason Alexander is so horrible I couldn't wait for the commercials!!! Don't waste your time watching this piece of crap. Who ever wrote the script has no sense of story structure, no retained memory space for thinking out a plot, and just flat out no writing abilities at all. The casting director should have been fired on day one... A herd of big name has-beens, a bus load of no names, and of all things, Jason "GEORGE" Alexander as a astrological scientist... Please!!!

In all honesty I watched part -1 with hopes it would improve, it didn't. So I gave part-2 the benefit of the doubt... couldn't make it past the first hour. Nothing made a good story, no suspense - "Here comes a giant meteor, quick blow it up... Okay - world saved. Take a break everyone, oh, here comes another one".... ZZZZzzzz........

If this was NBC's attempt to top ABC's IMPACT, it didn't even come close. Impact wasn't that great either, but I'd give it a C+ vs F- for METEOR. The only thing good I will say about Meteor was Stacy Keetch, he gave it the old college try... the rest of the cast was a wash.
