Talkative disaster melodrama, in which a group of scientists discuss the best course of action to avert a huge meteor careering towards Earth.
Unfortunately, the film gets so bogged down in dialogue, in lacks any thrills or tension, and doesn't have much drama either. From the poster alone, it's clear to see that this is TV movie of the week standard, albeit with a strong cast.
