Audience Reviews for Asteroid

This is what I consider to be the most realistic Meteor Impact movie I've seen. Unlike most movies, it has a simple "destruction" plot, which uses a device that probably exists in some form in real life. However, the main movie focuses on character relationships, and surviving the disaster, rather than stopping it.

Wow, what a disaster of an asteroid/meteorite impact film for the sake of populations in Dallas, Texas.
