Oh now, it's not that has a beginning, an end, a budget, and a cast you've probably heard of. Then again it's not that good either...irritating soundtrack, cliche city, bad love story, could never even remotely happen and so on. The plot is about a huge asteroid that is headed for the earth and everyone will die if it isn't stopped. The government decides the best course of action is to get pro drillers (erm yeah) to go up there and drill the problem. At least it isn't taking itself too seriously, and the little attempts at giving the drillers personalities was nice. In order to fix this you really would need a new plot, get rid of Ben Affleck and get a new director...but as is it's not that bad. Suspend belief and be remotely entertained.

Availability:  On DVD & Blu-Ray
