When a meteor so large there are no weapons to combat it threatens the Earth, a team of scientists develops a plan to instead move the Earth out of the Meteors’ path. Asteroid vs. Earth begins well enough, jumping straight into the storyline. As new characters are introduced we wait, but there is no background or history given. Likewise the story seems to jump around at times, heading in a particular direction for no particular reason. Like most other Asylum films, this one seems light on direction and quality.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were actually decent for an Asylum film. Special effects however were as cheesy as usual and consistently over the top. Dialogue was dry and lacking energy. Sound and soundtrack were mediocre.
Overall, as with most Asylum films, this is good for background noise but not much else. Lacking technical quality, direction, and acting, entertainment value is pretty low here so unless you are a die-hard sci-fi fan look for something with better quality.
With some potentially mildly disturbing images this should be fine for teens and above.
