Storyline

A deadly meteor storm has been labeled a one-time celestial occurrence, but astrophysicist Steve Thomas believes something worse is yet to come. After discovering his asteroid tracking satellite is secretly being used for military surveillance, Steve leaks the truth to the press, and it costs him his reputation, his job, and his friends. With the backlash of being a whistle-blower, the pressure threatens to tear his family apart, just when Steve discovers a threat to the entire planet: a giant dark asteroid invisible to current detection systems will soon strike the Earth. Barred from using his own satellite to prove the asteroid's existence, Steve is forced to work in the shadows in a desperate attempt to save humanity. Written by Official site

Just another generic disaster movie...
28 April 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Initially when you sit down to watch a natural disaster movie, chances are quite high that you will be in for something generic, low budget and boring. But still, there is something oddly bizarre about this type of movies that is alluring.

Meteor Assault (aka "Asteroid: Final Impact" as it was named on the DVD I found) turned out to be yet another generic and less than thrilling natural disaster movies that are readily available. So you know what you will get here.

The special effects in the movie, while they were present, were just anything but impressive. Did they serve their purpose? Certainly. But they were just not overly interesting, impressive or captivating. And it turned out to be actually just another mass-produced disaster movie not unlike the majority in the genre.

This movie follows the stereotypical blueprint of how to make a disaster movie. Some huge natural disaster threatens to put mankind to extinction, and a small group of people take action and manages to save the entire world at the very last moment. Yep, it is exactly that formula that "Meteor Assault" follows.

As for the acting in the movie, well let's just leave it at that you know exactly what you are getting, and the standards for these movies is also what you can expect.

I do enjoy disaster movies, just a shame that most of the movies made in the genre are less than mediocre. and "Meteor Assault" turned out to be yet just another of those movies. So there is nothing interesting to be had here.
