Excellent plot, low budget?16 Dec. 2001
- Published on Amazon.com
Judgement Day is similar to Armageddon and Deep Impact, which came out around the same time in 1998-1999. But if I had to choose the best PLOT of any of the "big rock hits earth" movies, it would be Judgement Day. However, there are a few actors who just do not fit the roles they are cast in. Yet the three primary actors are Ice-T, Suzi Amis, and Mario Van Peebles. Their roles are solid and convincing. There are about fifty dollars worth of special effects in the movie and, being a "big rock in space, hits earth" movie, that should tell you something. If you get this, do so for the story. The plot (with minor development) is by far excellent compared to any of the other movies of this genre.
