Pretty bad but not quite bottom-of-the-barrel for The Asylum
Anything from The Asylum does make one wary, as does a movie of theirs with a vs. title and a concept as silly as the one in Asteroid vs. Earth. The Asylum have definitely done far worse and there are a couple of redeeming merits. The best thing about Asteroid vs. Earth is Tia Carrere who gives a very charming performance and has a compelling enough screen presence. The scenery is nice too and there are moments of halfway decent photography, the editing also could have been far worse as well. The look of the movie though is far too drab giving it a gloomy and overly-serious visual quality, and while there have been far worse special effects in an Asylum movie they look rushed and awkward as there been inconsistency in how they're proportioned. The music is much too pedestrian and is constantly happening, when the orchestration and sound is so heavy throughout and in a dramatic sense it does get too much really. Apart from Carrere the acting is not much to write home about, Robert Davi spends the whole time looking lost and Paul Russ plays his role far too seriously. There are no characters here to engage with, not in the annoying sense but in that they are very cardboard and underwritten, and the script at best is flimsy with dialogue that is flat and at times gibberish-like and things that are picked up on but rarely explored. The story, the concept of which was silly to begin with, is ludicrously implausible to the point in places of being incoherent, any potential fun is so hampered by stupidity that it's tiring instead and the unconvincing conflicts and predictability makes Asteroid vs. Earth very low on the tension and suspense levels. Overall, there is far worse than Asteroid vs. Earth from The Asylum, but it is still pretty bad with every ingredient for a badly done disaster movie(mostly from The Asylum oddly enough) present here. 3/10 Bethany Cox
