A book editor is in the posession of an artifact that gives him visions. He lets on that he has another book written ready for publishing and asks for a proof reader (by name) to come and collect it. When the proof reader arrives, he finds the book editor dead and upon touching the artifact, has visions himself about the ending of the world. The entire plot is based on the 2012 galactic allignment end of world scenario, and the lead character teams up with an attractive archeologist and together they run from rogue government agents who also want the artifact, whilst narrowly avoiding death both from being shot and by falling into the earth during massive earthquakes. Mean while the rest of the world is befalling massive destruction. with only hours to spare, the duo must somehow save the day. Written by
It is stated that after an earthquake Italy sinks into the Mediterranean Sea. Italy sits on the African tectonic plate. The African plate is heading north, and is diving underneath the European plate. Thus every time the plate moves north, Italy and the Alps on the European plate actually rise in height, as Italy is being rammed into the Alps. So in real life if there were a giant earthquake near Italy, the land would go up not down. See more »

Yet another in the crop of 2012 end of the world disaster movies, this could have been better but to be honest, it could have been a lot worse. The film concerns a prophecy made by an author which is passed on to a book editor( played by A J Buckley)and an archaeologist (played by the ever watchable Jewel Staite) and their subsequent attempts to save the Earth from total destruction from an approaching menace. The sub-plot, involving several shady characters,is a little silly and predictable and the special effects could have been better but, in the films defence, it is a TV movie and after the huge budget of 2012 it would have been difficult to match it. I have to say that there are far too many of this kind of film around proving once again that Hollywood has run out of ideas but Jewels wide-eyed innocence gives this film an appeal for her legion of fans. Any Stargate/Stargate Atlantis aficionado will lap this film up. Me, I've watched it twice and will sit through it many more times if only to watch the delectable Miss Staite.
