2.0 out of 5 stars Watchable, entertaining sci-fi thriller despite silly CGE, December 13, 2012
This review is from: Collision Earth [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, Mississippi

Collision Earth will not win any awards for special effects.
I don't have enough scientific background to tell you if the film's premise is possible, but I rather doubt.
The sun becomes a magnetar for a brief period of time, long enough to throw the planet Mercury out of orbit, along with a space ship which is in its orbit and sends both on a collision course with earth. There are magnetars, which are neutron stars with extremely powerful magnetic fields, but I doubt the sun could become one.
There's some kind of radioactive malfuntion on the space ship, two crew members die and one survives, Victoria (Diane Farr). I always figured if you got hit with a bad massive dose of radiation that was it, but maybe females have a special gene. Just kidding, but anyway she survived.
She's married to James (Kirk Acevedo) who a scientist, who was fired from this research lab before he could get his Project 7 up and running. Project 7 is basically a force field -- the only thing that might save us from that out-of-control planet Mercury.
If you're still with me, you probably need to rent this movie. Two college students get in contact with Victoria with their homemade radio, despite the fact that all other communication is down.
So James, a screwy friend of his and these two college kids are in charge of saving the earth. Hey, I've spent two hours with worse movies. If you like SyFy Channel movies, you'll probably love this one. Remember the earth could end next week Dec. 21, 2012 but the odds of 2012 DA14, that big asteroids hitting earth is 1 in 100,000. I'm still planning 2013.
