When discussing Saipan, they talk as if it were still deserted and strewn with booby-traps left from WWII, when in fact, the island is a thriving tourist spot with a population of around 60,000 people. See more »

This premise and it still wasn't exciting
31 January 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

The usual Asylum nonsense. As usual, I go into these expecting that they might be, surprise, surprise, good - like AIRPLANE VS VOLCANO, which was entertaining in a thoroughly cheesy way - but usually end up being thoroughly disappointed by a pitiful movie. Unfortunately, ASTEROID VS EARTH is an example of the latter.

The storyline - which is all over the place, by the way - sees astronomers discovering a giant, 200-mile wide asteroid heading straight for Earth. Their solution is novel, to say the least; it involves MOVING the Earth by blowing up some nukes. What follows is a lot of nonsense involving characters globetrotting, some very poor explosive special effects, and exotic locales being razed to the ground.

The cast is headlined by a rapidly ageing Tia Carrere, who looks off somehow; like she's had so much surgery, her face appears to be melting a little. Better is Robert Davi (DIE HARD) who at least appears to be trying, although he's a long way from the huge screen presence he had in the 1980s. STAR TREK: VOYAGER's Tim Russ pops up in a supporting role as a submarine captain. The only part of ASTEROID VS EARTH I really liked (apart from the end credits, obviously) was the international feel of the production, with much of the action centred in south-east Asia; a change from the usual US-centric Asylum flicks.
