Meteor Reviews

May 25, 2015
If you're ever asked just how bad the disaster movie could get, this is the answer.

An $18 million, star-studded disaster film, which in itself is a major disaster.

A chain reaction in space causes an asteroid field to send out a ton of space rock (and not the Pink Floyd kind) toward Earth.

The all-star cast can only do so much to liven up the proceedings, with director Ronald Neame gradually losing tension as the film drags out the obvious for far too long.

Meteor really combines several disasters in one continuous cinematic bummer.

The suspense is sludgy and the character development nil; even the inadvertent comedy is spotty. The spectacle of Manhattan's demolition is interesting enough, but there's a lot of time-killing before the city actually goes up in flames.

The presence of a star (Connery), a great actor (Howard) and Fonda doing his turn as the US president add no credibility to an old-fashioned concept.

A grab-the-money-and-run disaster opus with a slumming Connery and Wood ludicrious as a Russian scientist. Too bad the set wasn't hit by a giant falling space rock.

Entertaining, but only in an "OMG is this stupid!" sort of way.
