Trivia

Attempts have been made to produce element 120, designated Unbinilium, but have not been successful. Expectations are that it could be the start of an "island of stability", i.e. have a nucleus with at least one relatively stable isotope. However, the most stable isotope of any element with an atomic number higher than 100 has a half-life of only 101 days. As the element's number increases, the length of the half-life decreases. Element 118 has a half-life of .89 microseconds; unless the theoretical island of stability exists and element 120 is in it, it could not exist long enough to be observed, much less sit at the bottom of San Francisco Bay for thousands or millions of years (current projections suggest a half-life of from 1 to 20 microseconds). Expectations of its chemical properties suggest that it would be highly reactive, oxidizing violently in air and explosively under water. See more »

Goofs

Element 120 has properties that can be predicted because of its position in the periodic table. Among those properties is paramagnetism, which means that it inly becomes magnetic with the application of an external electromagnetic field. Furthermore, since the force of magnetism decreases as the square of the distance from the magnet, the intensity of the magnetic field that would be able to attract meteors to the San Francisco area from space would be so strong that they could not have escaped detection before this time.

A pleasant surprise
17 March 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Before any one watches this movie they have to understand that it is a SyFy production, which means no academy awards, modest budgets, and fictitious science used to explain what is happening.

As a fan of the SyFy movies (mostly as they are the only regular source of science fiction on TV now days)I would have watched it regardless, but this film was a pleasant surprise.

The cast was surprisingly good based on the type of film, all science fiction regulars led by Battlestar alum Michael Trucco, Invasion and Covert Affairs beauty Kari Mitchell, Kyle XYs Kirsten Prout and Smallville and Flash Gordon star Eric Johnson, all of whom are playing to their strengths (eg Johnson as a cocky, arrogant reporter). All performed well, though Trucco was a little stiff.

A typical weakness in SyFy flicks are the CG effects. Fortunately, as the story really only called for meteors falling from the sky the cost would have been limited allowing for some generally decent effects. The first meteor storm was very well done.

Another typical weakness of SyFy films is the script/ dialogue. While there are some cheesy lines 'That might explain the Bay Area's historically bad cell phone service', there are some good lines too, my favourite being when Michelle is being asked to go with the army person who says 'Say yes while I'm still asking, Michelle'.

This is a decent flick for a wet Friday night. Certainly not a blockbuster, and there a holes in the plot and the science of the film, but if you can ignore them and just watch the movie as escapism and entertainment there are certainly worse films you could watch instead.
