Storyline

Plot Summary

Despite scientist Nathan's warnings, his boss continues an experiment meant as publicity for his satellite firm: exploding an asteroid. Instead it splits, and the major piece, the size of Iceland, changes course to earth. It is deflected but so close that it shift our course closer to the sun, causing rapid extreme heating, hopefully only mid-term. Nathan warns his sister, TV journalist Carly, and she her lover, police detective Tom. He brings his unruly daughter Kim, her ex-con lover C.J. and her mother, nurse Bonnie, when Nathan offers a flight to a friend's Arctic weather station. Tom takes charge of a dangerous trip to the airport, as everywhere on earth things catch fire and people fight for water, transport and sheer looting. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia Not to be confused with an old John Carpenter project called "Meltdown", a 1977-1978 adaptation of the "Prometheus Cris" novel, later set to star Dolph Lundgren and to be directed by John Dahl in 1994. But even though Casper Van Dien had also been attached to it in 1997-1998, that project had nothing to do with "Meltdown: Days of Destruction". Writer/director of Rick Drew developed the story from scratch and claims he had never heard of the Carpenter script and received sole credit from the WGA. See more »
Goofs The group takes a 'refrigerated truck' in order to have cool air for the engine and gas tank, but when they are driving away it is obvious that the drivers compartment is completely open to the rest of the interior - this would be a problem during normal use as it would freeze the driver.
