A group of talented but rebellious 'rock-star scientists' find themselves in a race against time to save Earth when a comet makes an unexpected turn towards our blue planet where all life may cease to exist within days if our small town heroes fail to find a solution. Written by
The title "Quantum Apocalypse" was the result of a joke: Writer Leigh Scott had an e-mail conversation with Dread Central reviewer Scott "The Foywonder" Foy (a frequent harsh critic of Sci-Fi Channel Original Films) about the Channel rejecting the previous title "Judgment Day". Foy remarked the reason that the title was rejected was that it didn't have a colon like many other Sci-Fi Channel films (such as "Caved In: Prehistoric Terror" and "Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep") and jokingly suggested the title "Judgment Day: Quantum Apocalypse". Scott liked the title "Quantum Apocalypse" and asked for permission to suggest it to the Sci-Fi Channel which approved it. See more »
"Awful beyond comprehension" does not even begin to explain...
There is really no other way for me to express what this movie is than this: A disaster movie where the only real disaster is the movie itself.
When reading the other reviews of this movie I thought to myself "Well, when a movie is bad enough I can usually laugh at it for being so bad and have a good enough time watching it anyway" and so I decided to see this with my own eyes. I implore you, dear reader, NOT to repeat my mistake! There is not enough alcohol, nitrous gas or low standards on the surface of the entire planet for anyone to find any enjoyable aspect in this movie at all.
Alphabetical order of flawed elements. Just because I want everyone to understand how bad this is.
Actors - The best ones are simply bad, the rest are horrible. Some of them at least make a bit of an effort.
Cameras and angles - Static shooting almost all the way, but it's actually not that bad compared to when the cameras move. In one scene where a character is driving, you'd think they bolted a $50 VHS camera to the hood and had him actually drive around with that.
Computer effects - You can easily spot them, if the graphic Ultra Low quality doesn't tip you off, the absence of the laws of physics will. Many movies from the 90's had Better computer generated effects. Even some of the Bad movies.
Other effects - I could not find a single one that was just slightly low-budget or just had a mild flaw. Every last one was flat out bad.
Script - Someone should be unemployed by now...
The rest - You probably already get the picture.
Summary: Gather your neighbors and have the most stupid one write the script, the most incompetent one manage effects, the ones with the worst poker faces be the actors and finally let someone with impaired motor skills handle the camera and you will make a masterpiece compared to this. Unfortunately I'm not joking.
