What to know
Meteor is a flimsy flick with too much boring dialogue and not enough destruction. At least the pinball game is decent. Read critic reviews

Sep 06, 2010One of the last disaster movies of the 70s. It has some intense moments, but for the most part it's boring and the story is kinda silly too. Still, it's entertaining.

Mar 04, 2009I had never heard of this movie before, it showed up as a suggestion when I looked up Dante's Peak. Godzilla is to Cloverfield as Meteor is to Armageddon. It's 1979 and the special effects are cutting edge at the time. They used scale models against space backdrops and really crude overlays and it looks very crude now but then I'm sure it was amazing. Sean Connery is a scientist for NASA and designed a weapon called Hercules to protect against possible catastrophes like this. The government decides to use it "illegally" to guard against nuclear attack from Russia. When a huge piece of asteroid is sent hurdling toward Earth the government calls on Connery to help them protect Earth, with an unlikely ally, to save the human race.
