Interesting premise, lousy execution.
I had high hopes for this film. The idea of a "War of the Worlds"-style
fake news broadcast about an imminent asteroid impact was very intriguing.
One of my favorite TV films was 1983's "Special Bulletin", which took a
similar approach to the subject of nuclear terrorism.
Unfortunately, this movie fails on almost all levels. The actors playing
the news reporters come off like, well, actors playing news reporters. The
plot points are just plain silly and melodramatic. The conclusion of the
film is wretchedly insipid. In effect, the fact that humankind takes
perfectly logical steps to protect ourselves from an asteroid causes
super-advanced aliens to think we're too warlike for them to let us live.
Or something like that.
The issue of asteroid impacts is real and serious enough that we don't need
television trivializing the subject with ridiculous sci-fi
One of the most original ideas I've ever seen!
The concept of this movie is brilliant! (Therefore, read movie's "Plot
This film has no "happy end", but however, I thought the ending was rather
predictable. That's why I didn't give this movie a 10. Watch this movie,
WILL enjoy it!.
