A missile sent from an unknown source is headed straight for New York City, burning everything in its path and traveling at 4000 miles an hour. A valiant effort is made to stop the missile using stock footage. Alas, the stock footage is not enough and it's up to a brave scientist to save the day. Yawn. Could've used less stock footage, if you ask me. Minor spoiler: we never find out who sent the missile or why. It's kind of a letdown.
