The movie isn't over but it was so formula, no need to see the end. It's the SciFi channel movie on tonight (sorry, didn't even bother to check the name) about an asteroid that splits the Moon and the US team has to send the shuttle up with some "meg" bomb to regenerate the Moon's magnetic field so the crack will seal itself instead of growing until the Moon breaks into 2 pieces and life on Earth is destroyed by the storms, ice age, and bombardment of Moon pieces. (Guess they couldn't decide which disaster to use so they used them all.)
Well the bad science is so overwhelming, I'll leave it to everyone else. I thought I'd ask the question, what would we do if the 'one' expert in [fill in the blank] got bumped off before the
worldUSA team of [fill in the blank] experts who were the only ones capable of dealing with the crisis died before he/she was needed? All those other experts but there is always only one person in the whole world that has to be called on. Boy we'd be in trouble without these incredible geniuses.
I wonder who wrote the script with the first evil jealous 'President's' favorite expert that tries to offer the alternative solution all the hero experts know would fail (or sometimes, the one hero expert knows would fail)? To think that legacy spawned 3/4 of every formula disaster script that followed. Someone should find the guy and give him/her the recognition due, along with the script writer that first wrote a plot with the 'one' expert in all the world that was needed to save the day.
