The Soviets and Americans combine forces to save the world from a meteor in this science fiction disaster adventure. Bradley (Sean Connery) is an American scientist who teams up with Dubov (Brian Keith), and his translator-assistant Tatiana (Natalie Wood) later falls in love with Bradley. Hong Kong and New York are hit hard by tidal waves as the scientists race against time to prevent global disaster. Although a fine cast is assembled, nobody stands out, and the real star of the film is the special effects. This 18-million-dollar feature faced real economic disaster at the box office, although four engineers received an Oscar nomination for "Best Sound" for this forgettable film. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
This movie is so poorly made the effects are sloppy even for the day it makes the original star wars look like the matrix, or lord of the rings or something. Boring movie too much waiting for the rockets to get to the rock. almost turned it off, but was laughing at the effects too much
This movie is not poor because of when it was made, but how badly it was made. It is definitely a grade C, and no more. I would not reccommend it to anyone, we found it not worth our time, as much as we like the actors in it. Lots of good music, which builds to nothing exciting.
