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.

When examining the Zodiac model at the Peruan lead mine, Professor Martin (Joel Gretsch) speaks of a "two thousand-year-old analogue 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 B.C., and was found in a shipwreck in the Aegean Sea. See more »

Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse is another of these SyFy funded disaster films. A mysterious artifact is discovered in Peru that triggers global catastrophes around the world which could destroy civilization.
A rogue scientist attempts to decipher the symbols on the artifact in an attempt to unlock its secrets which is linked to signs of the zodiac and hopefully save the world from destruction.
Like many of these films, its full of cheapo effects and a bad script and not so great acting. It only comes alive when Christopher Lloyd turns up and he is not in it for long, unfortunately for the movie.
Its just a run of the mill disaster film for SyFy without any wit or campy fun.
