Meteor

By Mark Savary

Sean Connery leads a team of asteroid-battling astronomers in Meteor, one of the last and most unusual examples of the disaster movie craze of the Super70s. In this one, a killer asteroid named Orpheus threatens to collide with the Earth, and Connery must come up with a plan to stop it. Cold war politics date the picture a bit, but they also add some weight to the impending doom facing humanity. Like any good disaster flick, it's populated by an all-star cast, including Karl Malden, Martin Landau, Natalie Wood, Richard Dysart, Henry Fonda, and Trevor Howard. Brian Keith plays Connery's opposite number in the U.S.S.R. While the pacing and special effects are weak compared to similar celestial menaces depicted in Armageddon and Deep Impact, Meteor displays all the benefits of its more powerful castů not to mention Hank Fonda as President.

Your Memories Shared!

"Long before Deep Impact or Armageddon, there was Meteor. Sean Connery is a scientist who attempts to convince the government that a five-mile-wide meteor (which looks suspiciously like some rocks in my back yard) is going to destroy Earth. Henry Fonda is the President (no truth to the rumor that daughter Jane hijacked a space shuttle to be near the meteor) who must decide whether whether to cooperate with the Soviet or to use banned nuclear weapons to blow up the rock. The all-star cast includes Natalie Wood as an interpreter and Martin Landau (Mission: Impossible) as an Air Force general. "
