  1. The formulaic story also limits what the actors can do, though Sokoloff slides nicely into the plucky reluctant heroine role.

    What we expect in exchange are a few thrills, a few jolts and some convincing destruction, none of which this cheap, embarrassing film delivers.

    There's much to be said for the major networks spicing their lineups with something more than just reality shows during the summer, but if Meteor represents the best they have to offer, Armageddon, come on down!
  4. 10
    The film goes beyond mere mediocrity to a gratuitous, mean-spirited ugliness that makes watching it not a campy hoot but a near-sickening ordeal.

    Flipped the channel to NBC a little late trying to find something to watch there was Kennth Micthell standing on the porch of Richmond Ranch. Thought I was watching Jericho! Will watch just for that! Expand

    Gave it a "1" because Christopher Lloyd was in it albeit briefly. Woefully miscast, the acting that isn't lethargic is just plain bad. Sub plots are distracting, main plot has been done way too many times before, what a waste of air time. Expand

    Used every throwaway line, The "suspense" was predictable and inter-woven plots made absolutely no sense. Only the special effects merit any positive response. Expand

    What a waste of 4 hours of my life. If this is what NBC has as writers, let them go back on strike, fire them and hire some high school kids... they couldn't do any worse. Expand

    This thing was just pitifully bad. The acting just stunk and plot was wriiten by a grade schooler. Was anyone annoyed by the stupid target thingy when they switched locales?! Expand
