1.0 out of 5 stars Remember "B" Movies? This one is a "C". Or maybe a "D"., December 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Collision Earth (Amazon Instant Video)
The thing about the old "B" movies is that they weren't intended to be and although the production values were a joke, that was half the reason they were fun. The stories and the acting were actually fairly good, if a bit over the top.

THIS movie on the other hand, is typical SY-FY channel fare. Notice I didn't say Sci-Fi channel, I said SY-FY.
If you're a science fiction fan with cable, you know what I'm talking about.

Every bad movie cliche you can think of is in it:

*The plucky college students with important information which nobody believes.
*The heroic couple who are divorced, with the hot wife working for a jerk at some government institute who says things like "Don't tell "X" Anything!" and "What is HE doing here?
*The spaceship in crisis routine, complete with panel that explode because the ship was shaken by atmospheric turbulence even though it's in space and injured/dead Captain who has facial injuries for reasons which are never adequately explained even though he was strapped into his chair the whole time, nothing actually hit him and he was sitting RIGHT NEXT to the uninjured co-pilot. Who of later dies for no apparent reason also.
*The fat, smirking security guard in the military looking uniform, complete with surly attitude and that circular fur surrounding his mouth that some idiots think looks cool when it REALLY makes your mouth look like a body orifice normally covered by pant.

And the physics of it?

Hey, I'm all for willing suspension of disbelief. I'm even willing to buy into the insane notion that our Sun magically turned into a magnetar for a brief instant and then reverted back. But when you continuously shower me with blatant and silly violations of the laws of physics that are so dumb even Bugs Bunny would roll his eyes, you're making my job as a viewer difficult to the point of impossible.

But don't worry...

The script may suck, but that acting sure is, er... wooden. And not a fine piece of rich Mahogany or polished Cherry... I'm talking about the kind of wood that you find in the back corner of the lumber department at Home Depot that you just KNOW they're letting the employees take home for the fireplace.

I paid $3.99 to rent this thing and if I had to do it over again for FREE, with God himself offering to tack the wasted time onto the back end of my life, I wouldn't bother.
