Recommended !By TayberryPie (42 reviews) from Aberdeenshire , 23 Jan 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Interesting variation on the Disaster theme. Very weird effects on Earth are created by magnetic disturbances when the Moon goes way off orbit because of a big asteroid collision.... then a SERIOUS chance of Moon smashing into Earth...
So top Technologists and Politicians plan to tackle the problem, needing ENORMOUS power to alter the Moon's orbit... fortunately some VERY powerful technology had just been discovered...but needs men sending to the Moon... will it work??? You'll need to watch it :)

Lunar Buggery With Waning InterestBy Roddenberry (31 reviews) from Bristol , 08 Mar 2013Would have like to have seen a 90-100 minute cut of this and an absolute waste of James Cromwell's talent.
Three words: Made For T.V.By TheWatchman (487 reviews) from Suburbia , 03 Feb 2013Impact is basically a disaster movie but on television (Think a Michael Bay film, but without the budget or stars). An asteroid has only gone and knocked the moon out of orbit and now our former lunar buddy is on a collision course for Earth, dooming the lot of us. But dont worry, seeing as Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck were unavailable to fly up there and blow it out of the stars, we have a team of international boffins who will come up with something to save us all. In the end they simply must have watched Armageddon, as they decide to fly up there and blow it up (just with worse special effects). Most people could probably put aside the slightly dubious special effects and lack of big-name actors and give Impact a chance. However, its main problem is simply its lack of originality. Even if you do leave out the dodgy scientific theories behind the scenario, what you have here is one disaster movie cliché after another. The dialogue is horrendous and even when the action does pick up a bit and focus on the (slightly) more interesting characters, it keeps hopping back to some severely boring ones (aka their various families, who all happen to have put themselves in perilous danger at the same time). I was never that much of a fan of Armageddon. I found it too over-the-top and daft to really enjoy properly. However, after watching Impact, give me Steve Tylers I Dont Want to Miss a Thing any day.
Impact - not much of oneBy BrilliantTrees (160 reviews) from Surrey, UK , 23 Dec 2011A reasonable TV movie (it's in 2 parts) about a meteor hitting the moon and causing it to change it's current orbit. It's not a great film, but it has good special affects & is worth watching.

Redundant TV movieBy a customer from Yorkshire , 03 May 2011Why did they feel the need to make this drivel when we had Deep Impact, The Core and Armageddon hitting the big screen like a relentless wave of life-ending scenarios? Did they think we were pining for yet more depressing, totally hokum end-of-the-world plot-lines? Well, they can think again, because this was abysmal.
