The movie starts off with Dr. Rhodes discovering that a comet has went off course (due to an anomaly) and has hit Mars. Now the comet is on a collision course with Earth, along with some of the debris from Mars.
A crackpot science team which includes: Tom, Trish, and Dr. Sadoughian must work fast to find a way to stop the comet from destroying Earth.
Meanwhile at Mayor Ben Marshall's house, it's business as usual. His autistic brother Terry is making pancakes from scratch for his niece. The Mayor's son gets a ride to school from his father and drops him off in front of the school. The anomaly begins to cause weather disasters across the globe. Earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis, and more wreak havoc and kill millions. Terry had been talking to a friend of his online about the anomaly and has been tracking everything. He believes he knows how to stop the comet and the anomaly from destroying Earth. However, he needs to get to the Space Center in Houston.
Can Terry get to Houston in time to help the scientists save Earth from ultimate destruction? You will have to watch the movie in order to find out.
I love a good 'comet-heading-toward-Earth' movie. The special effects in this movie were okay. The camera work was pretty fluid, especially for the budget that they had (I believe it was around $2 million). As far as the acting is concerned, the only name that I recognized was Rhett Giles, who played Terry Marshell, Ben Marshall's autistic brother. He did an amazing job in this movie. Most of the actors in this movie did a great job.
Would I recommend this movie? Sure.
Keep in mind that this is just a movie. This type of anomaly can't happen in real life. I've read reviews about these kinds of movies where viewers talk about how unrealistic this genre is. Well, for the most part it is unrealistic. If you know your science and astronomy, you know what could happen, and what could never happen.
So, if you are subscribed to the Netflix DVD program, add this movie to your queue, pop some popcorn, and enjoy!
