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.Read more ›
The picture is EXCELLENT, and the sound exemplary.
There are no extras -- not even trailers/previews.
The story is a little contrived. Something or another about a Space Shuttle
that never runs out of fuel that has a mission to Mercury. If I remember my
highschool science -- I'm 63, now -- Mercury is the closest planet to our Sun.
It is so hot there, your underwear would melt if you were dumb enough to go there.
Well, this Space Shuttle, that never runs out of fuel, has the mission to "walk on
the planet." Don't think so.
Everybody just, unexplainably, drops dead on the Shuttle except this gal that is
married to this guy that got fired from some anti-asteroid killer program that was
dropped from the Defense budget -- get this -- after it was fully built in a high-
This genius [her HUSBAND] they fired is the Earth's only hope, aided by two nerd
college students with a "Universal" broadcast studio in a biefcase... that works
-- perfectly -- without any visible antennae from Earth to Mercury. Back and forth,
with NO delays at all.
So... Mercury flies out of orbit and becomes a... a.... I think it was called a Mega-
tar/Magnitar or something, which is a scholarly word for a Magnetized Planet.
Mercury is hurtling toward our planet, and -- again, unexplainably -- sucks up SOME
[but not all] metal things like lamp posts; cars; mailboxes; trashcans, and this and
that. Fine; but it also hurtles SOME of this stuff right back to Earth with occasional
small pieces of Mercury.Read more ›
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.

Sheer melodramatic nonsense perfectly describes this ridiculous descent into the sci-fi realm of the absurd. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Joel Kovacik
I liked this movie and the story line. I liked Acevedo in fringe and I liked him in this movie too. Plus his wife is a good female role model.Published 8 months ago by Kindle Customer
