A huge Solar flare is predicted to fry Earth. Astronauts must fly to the sun to drop a talking bomb (Freddy) at the right time so the flare will point somewhere else. Giant IXL Corp C.E.O. Teague thinks the flare won't happen and wants the mission to fail so he can buy the planet cheaply while the scare lasts. Employee Haas prepares a surprise for the astronauts. While daddy Steve Kelso commands the space ship where temperatures rise, granddaddy Admiral Skeet Kelso is searching the desert for grandson Mike who's gone A.W.O.L. to say goodbye to his dad but who inadvertently crossed the path of the men from IXL after meeting desert-dweller Travis.Written by

When I first saw this film, I had heard nothing of it, but with the cast it had, I was expecting a fairly decent film. Instead, I found the film to be rather poor in both concept and execution. I am not saying that it isn't worth a look, however. Charlton Heston and Jack Palance gave decent performances that could have belonged in a better film, as did Corin Nemic. Tim Matheson wasn't half bad, but the rest of the cast seemed to fall flat on their faces. The plot was so contrived that you could shoot a solar flare through the plot holes. Basically, this film has been done better as bigger asteroid films (like Armageddon and Deep Impact) so it is a kind of waste of time unless you are a die hard fan of the actors or sci-fi disaster movies. I also must mention that even though the film brags about the special effects being done by the same people as 2001 and Star Wars, their effects in those movies were far superior. In this film, the effects feel cold and detached, where as in those movies they are visually exciting and stimulating. I guess it would have helped, though, if this film had had a bigger budget. So, overall, I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone unless they were really bored and liked cheesy sci-fi disaster films.
