Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

There are echoes of Armageddon in this daft and cliché-riddled sci-fi thriller, in which Earth's future is threatened when a huge asteroid destabilises the Moon. Enter demolitions expert Stephen Baldwin, who, after barely establishing his professional credentials in an overdone opening sequence, preposterously becomes humanity's only salvation from going "the way of the dinosaurs". Poor effects and nonchalant acting compound the narrative's lack of realism, making the supposedly dramatic events feel underwhelming and leaving it to the increasingly frenzied score to create tension. B-movie lovers might get a kick out of some of the hilarious dialogue and implausible science, but there's not enough here to encourage anyone else to bother watching.
