2.0 out of 5 stars WORLD COMING TO AN END October 27, 2013
Format:DVD
NASA launches a "scaler drive" into the sun which causes it to go "hyper active." The Earth has two days left unless rivals can come together and hand deliver another scaler drive to the sun. The film contains various subplots including the Chief of Staff trying to get the President to resign. The special effects were noticeably CG. The science left much to be desired as apparently we have created cooling systems that allow us to fly near the sun without breaking out a sweat. The science was so bad, I was surprised NASA didn't decide to launch their sun probe at night to avoid the sunlight altogether.

The film is SyFy quality and Canadian lame.

Parental Guidance: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously terrible! January 18, 2014
Format:DVD
I picked this out of a row of "Suggestions for You" because I love a good global-catastrophe movie -- and I have to say, I'm delighted to spend the time watching it, because it's so utterly, utterly terrible. Looking for something to MST3K? Something to create a drinking game for? This is your movie!

It opens with a young couple making out in the back seat of a car in Georgetown. When a black SUV rolls up, blue lights flashing, and a couple of guys in dark suits drag the girl out of the car, identifying her as the President's daughter, her paramour blurts in bewilderment, "I've been dating the President's daughter??!?" Aaaaannnnd we rocket delightfully downhill from there. The characters are all ridiculously two-dimensional, the sets are '60s-era cheesy, and the acting is something any high school drama student would be proud of.

And the science? AWESOME.

If you're looking for a movie that makes a lick of sense, this isn't it. But if you're looking for something that'll make you howl with laughter, go ahead and rent this one.

Anxiously awaiting the sequel...

1.0 out of 5 stars Believe me. It is really bad. September 7, 2014
Format:DVD
Unbelievably bad.

SOME PLOT SPOILERS:

This is a science fiction film, without one bit of science. There are no "Laws of Physics" in this film. It will remind you of a 1950's film where the actors take a trip to the moon or to Mars, without space suits, and earth gravity is forever present in the space ship.

The plot is totally absurd: Present day civilian space flight around the moon and back in a space ship that can reach orbit without an Atlas rocket or any type of external booster. Yeah, it looks something like the space shuttle and takes off like a regular airplane, and once it reaches orbit it kicks in it's "special" engines than can reach a speed of over 5,000 miles per minute. Star Trek stuff in present day time frame. And no one questions it. Huh?

Also, there are 3 subplots that make no sense, and do not contribute one iota to the trip to the moon -- and subsequent accidental trip to the sun, which creates the global catastrophe (Exploding Sun) because of the planes special engines!?

The major subplot is how do they -- the two guys (one a scientist and one a pilot) that hate each others guts -- solve the problem of the sun exploding and sending enough radiation to the earth to sterilize all life? Surprise! The military secretly made a second space ship (how convenient) so let's send this ship with it's special engines to the sun to stop the sun from exploding. And where as the first space ship engines had "Direct Current", the second ship has "Alternate Current" which will reverse the catastrophe caused by the first ship, and the sun will calm down and the earth will be saved. Think it will work??? Why not go to Disneyland and wish upon a star?
