After discovering that an asteroid the size of Texas is going to impact Earth in less than a month, N.A.S.A. recruits a misfit team of deep core drillers to save the planet.
A classic doomsday premise executed with a big budget is ruined by a silly plot and a chaotic ending.
On renewed viewing: a bit more entertaining, if you don't take to too seriously.
Halliwell (no star): "Loud and brainless action movie that was among the top box-office successes of 1998."
Maltin**: "Opens with a bang, and sets up an exciting (if improbable) story...After a while it becomes so routine, so predictable, and so redundant that all the fun is drained away."
