Storyline

A family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. John Garrity (Gerard Butler), his estranged wife Allison (Morena Baccarin), and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary. Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being leveled by the comet's fragments, the Garritys experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them. As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven. Written by STX Entertainment

Trivia

The comet is named "Clarke," in a tribute to the late Arthur C. Clarke, author of the 1993 novel "Hammer of God," which describes the impact on Earth of a planet-killing asteroid. The novel predates the movies Armageddon (1998) and Deep Impact (1998), which deal with similar events. See more »

It's ok
28 November 2020 | by simoncmooreSee all my reviews

Stuff falls from the sky, there are explosions, lots of running around. It is usual disaster film fare. There's no clever story, no room for actors to stretch their ability. It starts and then progresses to a predictable conclusion. It's a film that will fill some time but will not leave a lasting impression.
