Storyline

When photographer Jake Lowe gets gets a cryptic message from an old friend, he follows its instructions leading him to a remote research station in the Sierra mountains. After doing some snooping around, he learns a terrible secret: a giant comet will be passing next to the Earth, unleashing earthquakes, volcanoes, meteor strikes and other natural disasters that will destroy the world as we know it. Somehow, Lowe must get the word out and warn people of the coming catastrophe, but even if he succeeds, will it make any difference? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Deep Impact on the cheap!
10 August 2002 | by redkiwiSee all my reviews

Not another "comet hits the earth" movie I hear you say. Well, it's going to hit the moon, so I suppose it's slightly different this time.

Dennis Hopper is probably the best actor on the planet at playing an egotistical maniac, and as the scientist building his ark in this film he does it well as ever.

However, it's predictable and it's boring. So don't see it!
