Meteor Bay-Leder 7 struck earth on October 18th, 2012. Causing earthquakes, tidal waves, and a dust cloud that soon covered most of the Northern hemisphere, it changed the face of our planet forever. Leaving Russia destroyed, and turning Europe into a snow- covered »death zone«, Bay-Leder 7 was the end of civilization as we know it. For Tom Parker, head of security at the American Embassy in Berlin, it was also the end of all he held dear - having to leave his wife and his daughter in the German capitol, he effectively sentenced them to a cold death. Three years later, most of the survivors have set up shop in the habitable territories in the equator regions. It's a harsh life, with little hope of Earth's climate ever reverting back to normal. When a military command center registers a long forgotten experimental satellite going green, an expedition is set up to find the base from where it is controlled.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen..
I rented this movie thinking it would have been like The Day After Tomorrow, but boy was I wrong. Post Impact stars Dean Cain (known for being Superman from Lois&Clark, and the Ripley's Believe It or Not guy) and a bunch of other small time actors. The plot revolves around a meteor hitting Europe and sending it into an ice age. Sounds like a good movie so far, right? Well.. so far. However, the plot gets completely ridiculous where a 'bad guy' takes over some kind of satellite that could melt the ice but instead uses it to destroy cities (ironically in the same city the meter hit). So Dean Cain and a bunch of soldiers set out on a mission to stop him (the closer they get to him, the colder it gets). The movie gets incredibly boring towards the last half (unnecessary and slow gun fights) with a rather hilarious ending that defeats the entire purpose of the movie. Also, very horrible special effects and mediocre acting; lots of goofs (i.e. going outside in -50C temperature). My suggestion is to pass it up and to completely forget it ever existed.
