Storyline

On the eve of the last year of the twentieth century, a nervous military leader assembles a team to help him deal with an unforeseen problem, as they are being alerted of a long missing nuclear missile hidden somewhere deep in the jungle, which is set to go off in January 2000, due to the "millennium bug". It's up to them to race against time to stop it before it is too late. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Goofs

The dialog has someone saying "Set the missile to detonate at 32,000 feet" - but the computer graphic on the monitor shows it set to detonate at "32.000 miles above sea level." That height (32 miles) would be too far up to cause significant damage - it is beyond most of the atmosphere. It is also more than 160,000 feet, not 32,000 feet. See more »

Bizarre, Ridiculous, and Rates a One
21 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Normally, when a film rates this low, I find other things to like about it. Namely, its silliness. To say I didn't laugh throughout this film would be a lie. This movie provides a great many laughs. Its just. . . well, this is not supposed to be a comedy.

Even so, I enjoyed other awful attempts at seriousness. Examples include Disney's, "Epcot: The Celebration," and Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space." The difference with "Y2K" is that they are exploiting real fears. Similar to "Reds," the subject matter is deadly serious. "Reds" ranked a one in my book by candy coating a serious subject, in a ridiculous movie formula. The same goes for "Y2K."

The only thing these films have in common besides their poor rating, is the fact that they highlight fiction. On the one hand the fiction of the great communist movement, and on the other the fiction of the great threat to our times, the year 2000 computer problem. Give me a break on both fronts.
