Meteor

1979

Ronald Neame
Director
American International Pictures
Studio

Arriving at the tail end of the 70s disaster movie cycle, this decidedly poor effort features dreadful dialogue, situations and 'special' effects on a par with early Doctor Who including stock footage and even stealing from another movie (Avalanche). Connery and Wood covered in what appears to be chocolate sauce can't save this one. Go and watch Deep Impact instead.

To add insult to injury, the US DVD release is a grainy non-anamorphic transfer that still manages to look squished.
