Editorial Reviews

A rogue asteroid smashes into the moon in a tremendous explosion of rock and debris. Within days, disastrous abnormalities start happening on Earth. What started as the most beautiful and the largest meteor shower in 10,000 years unexpectedly becomes the catalyst for a potential collison between the moon and planet Earth. The world's leading scientists, Alex Kittner (David James Elliott, TV's "JAG") and Maddie Rhodes (Natasha Henstridge, Species) have 39 days to stop the moon's course or the Earth - and all of mankind - will perish. Also starring James Cromwell (W. and The Green Mile). The countdown is on.

"Impact" was originally a made for TV mini-series so it is lacking the big Hollywood studio "feel". This is actually a good thing if you want the drama and character development that is possible in a movie that is 3 hours and 10 minutes long.

No plot spoilers from me; the movie centers on the events that occur immediately after what is believed to be an asteroid hits the moon (which happens very shortly after the movie starts), the effects it has on the earth, and the efforts of the governments and scientists of the world to set things right... before the world is destroyed.

I am a Sci-Fi and disaster movie junkie, so I likely rated this higher than many movie purists would since there are a lot of scientific faults, implausible events, and has almost every cliché from just about every other disaster movie. The special effects ranged from laughable to outstanding, but the cinematography was actually very good. The acting was right on par for a TV movie and the characters well played and given time to develop.

While all movies of this type require some suspension of disbelief, there were several things that bothered me more than the obvious technical and scientific flaws, and the biggest was the portrayal of the government and military leaders as obstructionist and paranoid to the point where they would risk the lives of every person on the planet. That is a cliché that needs to be let go of.

Overall, this was a watchable and even enjoyable movie if you are a disaster movie fan.

Great movie... getting a lot of details right.

The few shortcomings don't really diminish the viewing experience.

Don't expect a Hollywood type movie - some special effects are not of that standard. However, the movie excells in story telling, characters and message.

Especially surprising - details in Germany are accurate - e.g the THW sequences - Technical Help Organization.

Movie captures "atmosphere" in Germany very well.

Watch it.

I'm writing this after watching the first half of this miniseries. I find the writing to be intelligently written, the acting the same....My feeling is that they're not going for sensationalism but more realism. I don't know about "brown" asteroids (heavy asteroids) but it seems plausable (SPOILER ALERT) that one could hit the moon and cause it to be heavier, hitting with such force that it could change the moon's orbit. The special effects are awesome, esp. for a made-for-tv movie. As I say, I'm not an astronomer/scientist but it all seems logical. I'm looking forward to the conclusion next week and signed up to be notified when the DVD comes out.

I really enjoyed this movie. The science behind the science fiction, was flawed, however, saying that, the acting and the story line where where both superb.

Don't watch this movie for the science, watch it for entertainment, like you would watch Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter. It has happeness, sadness, and love, all the things that make up a good movie. The movie is as long as Gone with the Wind, and will keep you interested from start to finish.

Sorry. No blood or dismemberment. Just a very enjoyable, entertaining movie. The screenplay is very well written, the special effects are tastefully done, and the actors offer the vehicle for a storyline that moves very quickly. Is the plot realistic? I truly don't care. Did I find myself drawn into the movie? Absolutely! I'm so tired of travelog in depression movies, so popular today. This one is exciting and heart lifting. Please, don't pass this one up.

First of all, I am a true fan of David James Elliott. I am a JAG fan. Watched the whole series twice. So I must respect him making other movies. IMPACT? Different for him. The movie comes in two (2) parts which is required because it is a 'before our times' movie. I could relate as seeing what is going on today's world, it seemed familiar. I would not recommend watching both parts at once because it draws you in. The technical stuff is so facinating. But, if you do watch both parts at once, be cofortable. If you go to another part of your living quarters you will miss the moment.Lillian

This movie comes as a two parter and I would give part one four stars, and part two I would give three stars if that were possible. Part one is fast paced and well done whereas part two has a few draggy moments before it works its way to a fairly good ending for a disaster movie.

The movie is suitable for the family and has some tender moments as well as some interesting special effects. The acting is generally good and the child actors are sufficiently cute to arouse a loving, parental concern for their well being. All told it was worth the time it took to watch and deserves its four stars rating in my opinion. The only problem we had with the audio was the surround channels were so loud it was sometimes difficult to hear what was being said. The video quality was sharp and clear and the special effects were effectively done.

I am a fan of disaster flicks while my wife is not but even she enjoyed most of the movie which is a high compliment for any disaster movie.
