Archaeology Professor Neil Martin hasn't done field work in fifteen years, ever since his divorce and needing to take care of his son, Colin. Now twenty, Colin convinces his father to accept an assignment offered by Kathryn Keen of Poly Dynamics, a research company that tries to find solutions to global issues. That assignment, which continues the work of a now deceased Professor Robert Bowles, looks into an unusual find in a lead mine in Peru. After traveling to the site with Colin and Kathryn, Neil believes the find, a tablet with some astrological glyphs, including one of Planet X - the ninth planet - is part of a key to some recent natural and destructive phenomenon, including a couple of meteor storms, one which killed Dr. Bowles and one which almost killed Colin. They also uncover a seemingly radioactive stone buried behind the tablet. He believes the stone and the tablet are only parts of the puzzle to the reason behind the destructive natural phenomenon, twelve which will ... Written by
When examining the Zodiac model at the Peruvian lead mine, professor Martin speaks of a "2000 years old analog computer" discovered in Greece. This is a reference to a real device, the Antikythera mechanism, a complex clockwork device that can predict astronomical positions. It is believed to have been built in 150 BC, and was found in a shipwreck in the Aegean Sea. See more »
The in-cockpit views from the helicopter maneuvering in flight show the artificial horizon is not showing the helicopter's attitude with relation to the horizon during the banks it is performing. The altimeter shows an altitude above sea level of 840' which could be proper, but likely not in the mountainous terrain which would be several hundred feet or more above sea level given the location of mountainous regions in relationship to coastal areas in the Americas.

I give credit to the director for trying but don't expect much. The storyline is like any other disaster movie, only difference is how the disasters come about. The special effects are terrible and you can see clearly they are computerized and transfered - hardly believable. Some of the characters got under your skin, and Christopher LLoyd - maybe it 's his age but a disappointment from his days in Back To The Future. The actors did do a nice job carrying the movie but the special effects just didn't seem to help it - in fact it made you cringe at the way some of the effects appeared. A made for TV film for a rainy Sunday afternoon.
