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.Read more ›
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.
