Goofs

Zoe's father has a pacemaker, which is shorted out when their car is hit by one of the EM pulses. After the car is hijacked and a second wave hits, the pacemaker is seemingly shorted out again, resulting in his death. However, as the device had already shorted out, nothing would have happened as a result of it being hit by a second EMP. See more »

You can ignore the really BAD reviews!
5 March 2014 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

As far as this movie goes it's pretty safe to say that its' not going to win any awards so I have to agree with those reviewers that have said it it isn't in their top 10 so-to-speak. However, I DON'T agree with several who seem to have gone out of their way to castigate the film in every way possible either. It's obvious that the budget was low and bearing that in mind I think the overall result wasn't that bad at all. The acting was fairly sound, Jack Coleman, Holly Elissa and Terry Mulligan were convincing in their respective roles - and I think one reviewers 'apology' for Canada producing such a rubbish film was both unnecessary and over-the-top. The subject matter about shifting Poles causing Magnetic Storms after a Meteor hits earth is a well-used one we know BUT this WAS really more of a family-film type entertainment and NOT in the genre of Alien or Predator.The scenery used was impressive and I think as 'Family Entertainment' there has been a lot worse.
