Meteor Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The Soviets and Americans combine forces to save the world from a meteor in this science fiction disaster adventure. Bradley ([[Performer~P10646~Sean Connery~seanconnery]]) is an American scientist who teams up with Dubov ([[Performer~P37385~Brian Keith~briankeith]]), and his translator-assistant Tatiana ([[Performer~P77340~Natalie Wood~nataliewood]]) later falls in love with Bradley. Hong Kong and New York are hit hard by tidal waves as the scientists race against time to prevent global disaster. Although a fine cast is assembled, nobody stands out, and the real star of the film is the special effects. This 18-million-dollar feature faced real economic disaster at the box office, although four engineers received an Oscar nomination for "Best Sound" for this forgettable film. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
