| A Good Disaster Movie, With A Disastrous Ending.
This film starts off a sound disaster movie with the said asteroid of the title disappearing. When astrophysicist Steve Thomas (Mark Lutz) wants to use his asteroid tracking site to find the missing rock he finds it's now being used by the military to spy on the populace. After he blows the whistle he loses his job, his reputation, and friends. Then after a deadly meteor storm hits America he comes to realise theirs greater issues at hand. The missing rock has become a dark asteroid, which is undetectable by normal technology, only Thomas' satellite will be able to see it. However, things only get worse as it may be indestructible also.

This, for the most part, is a respectfully written, directed, and acted film. Daniel Winters creates a nice story of distrust and the consequences of one's actions, even when they are the in the right. The actors do a good job of bringing the characters to life and generating a believable universe. While the director, Jason Bourque, keeps the pace fluctuating in all the right scenes to create excitement. The special effects or decent, though nothing ground-breaking, they are used well and to their greatest potential to strengthen the story and film.

Unfortunately, and it's a big unfortunately, the ending lets the story down to the point of breaking the believability and leaving the viewing audience feeling cheated. It feels rushed, crude, and childish, which is a shame as with a better and more reasonable and realistic outcome this film could have been a rare thing - a TV movie which breaks out of the average mould.

So if you like disaster movies this may be worth watching as long as you remember that the ending needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. If bad movies bring a smile to your face when something incredibly awful and silly happens then the finale should bring a smile to your lips as it did mine; if not then stay away from the film.
