The premise: A giant meteor is expected to crash into Earth in amatter of days -- a crash that would cause global devastation. Oneman can stop it: Dr. David Corbett, the creator of a Star Wars-esquemissile defense system.
The feds aren't the only group looking forhim; militant religious cult leader Thomas Payne believes thatjudgment day is rightly upon us, and will do anything he can to keepCorbett from stopping the meteor.
The government is forced to enlistthe help of Payne's arch-enemy Matthew Reese, a convicted killer, whois the only man who would know Payne's whereabouts.
"JudgmentDay" puts a new and different spin on the whole "meteordestroying the Earth" story. Rather than concentrating ondestroying the meteor, the movie largely deals with finding the manwho can and stopping the man who would let the Earth be destroyed.For this, it gets three stars.
The acting isn't the best, but itisn't the worst I've ever seen. Ice T is probably the worst of thebunch. Since I really don't remember how the rest did, I'm notawarding any stars for the acting. I don't remember it being too goodor bad though.
In short, if you want to see a different spin on themeteor arc, check this film out; you might like it.
