4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie and good price May 10, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm writing this mostly to correct the impression given by a reviewer that this blu ray disc does not contain the entire miniseries. It certainly does contain both parts in their entirety. After watching part one the credits role and then part two starts automatically. It can also be accessed from the pop up menu at any time. The film itself is pretty good although a bit slow. There are too many characters to keep track of and the film would have been better if half an hour were edited out. IT also suffers a bit of an identity crisis. Is it science fiction or a serial killer stalker movie? It trys to be both with mixed results. Nice to see Luke Perry in the lead role. He does a fine job with this. Visual effects are fairly impressive CGI stuff. The transfer looks excellent and often almost three dimmensional. Colors are beautiul and vivid. There is some minor dirt on the print in two scenes but other than that it looks awesome. Sound is excellent uncompressed 5.1 There are interviews with the director, John Harrison and all of the cast. A trailer is also included. For such a bargain basement price, they did a very nice job with this Blu ray release. And once again, THE DISC DOES CONTAIN THE COMPLETE FILM.

3.0 out of 5 stars HERE COMES THE SUN January 15, 2006
Format:DVD
SUPERNOVA is a tv miniseries that runs at almost three hours, and it's a case of less would have been more. The script by Steve Berman is so overloaded with extemporaneous subplots that the focus from the imminent disaster gets sidetracked a little too often. The whole thing with Luke Perry's wife witnessing a serial killer and then her testimony sending him to the death penalty is wholly unnecessary. Anyway, the main plot deals with an impending supernova discovered by brilliant scientist Peter Fonda, based on Perry's calculations. When all the predictions start occurring (migratory patterns change, telecommunications and blackouts, etc.), seems like the earth's goose is cooked. Disaster flick fans should be pleased with the decimation of such cities as St. Louis, Paris, Syndey and the Taj Mahal, and the computer generated effects of the sun's eruptions is visually beautiful if unrealistic. Of course, the nasty government gets involved with Tia Carrere as a Security Agent who whisks Perry and other scientists off in an attempt to prove or disprove Fonda's findings. Lance Henriksen struts his villainous stuff as a man who will be responsible for deciding who will live in underground facilities to repopulate the earth after the disaster, and Emma Samms is the maverick crusading reporter who is determined to let the public know the truth. The resolution of the supernova is kind of ridiculous, and the movie's climax focuses on the serial killer. All in all, it's not horrible, but it fails to give us what disaster movies should: impending doom for people we care or don't care about and this is where SUPERNOVA fizzles.

2.0 out of 5 stars Supernova: Lukewarm Apocalypse February 12, 2006
Format:DVD
Supernova doesn't seem to quite know what it's trying to be and as a result never quite succeeds on any level. As a disaster epic, it can never quite match the visuals of big screen offerings that have dealt out similar levels of global destruction. The sequences of the sun's increasing activity are pretty enough to look at but never convince and feel disconnected from the rest of the action. And scenes of the Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal and Sydney Opera House being destroyed by giant fireballs descending from the sky are largely unnecessary, only further detracting from the believability of the whole endeavour with some average at best effects work. It's at its best when it presents the aftermath of the effects of the sun's activity on a smaller scale, emphasising the human drama amongst the chaos that ensues.

The science behind the storyline seems rather shaky at best, as evidenced by a key scene involving a piece of elementary and unconvincing mathematics. This could, however, be overlooked if the treatment of the scenario of a sun about to consume our solar system was in itself engaging. Here again, though, Supernova is only a partial success. The notion of an underground hive intended to ensure mankind's survival if life above ground were to become unsustainable is one of the more interesting themes on offer, and so it's a shame it's never fully explored. Instead, there are a number of subplots and situations of varying levels of interest. Of these, Shepard's ruminations on his island retreat are amongst the most poignant as he contemplates his life and work and awaits an end he deems inevitable; his final scene is poorly executed, however, and only detracts from what has gone before.

4.0 out of 5 stars When Suns Explode January 19, 2007
Format:DVD
Peter Fonda is a wacky but brilliant astrophysicist. He has discovered that our sun is much older than previously believed and that it will go supernova in about a week. Fonda heads out to enjoy his final days without telling anyone. He did pass his findings to several other scientists around the world and that brings the US Government into play. Luke Perry worked with Fonda and everyone thinks he has the answers and knows where Fonda is. Meanwhile Fonda's predictions start to come true as the sun's behavior starts to cause havoc with magnetic fields and electronic communications.

Perry discovers that there are government plans to preserve humanity they just didn't expect such a complete disaster. But they start making their moves anyway. Perry's wife is terrified of a killer she survived and how is about to be executed. He escapes (no surprise there). Global conditions continue to worsen and the death toll begins to skyrocket. A supernova would destroy the entire solar system. The only hope is that Fonda made a mistake in his calculations. Will the world survive? Watch and find out.

I guess they didn't want to call this Nova (our sun isn't big enough to go supernova) but they did a good job of treating the story with a proper 'There will be no survivors' attitude an exploding sun would cause. The acting is pretty good while the effects are pretty lame considering what else Hallmark has created. Was the escaped killer sub-plot necessary? Probably not as such but it created more tension and stress for Perry. Other than calling the event a supernova there was a commitment to avoid science and scientific terminology for most of the story (makes it hard to pick holes in). For a disaster film this is better than the recent made-for-TV earthquake and storm films but not as well done as say The Day After Tomorrow. Check it out.
