At the beginning of the film it's announced to the world that we have 82 hours until a gigantic meteor is going to hit the Earth and kill everybody. In real life this kind of news would make the population of Rape-Murder City to instantly jump to around 7 billion, but not here. Pretty much the only thing that happens the entire movie is this dude locks his family up in a secluded house and tries to protect them from a local child murderer. That's all that happens the entire movie!!! They could have had the same tension by simply have the phone not work.
With a proper script and a good director this film could have been extremely exciting. Unfortunately, none of that was present here. Skip it and watch MIRACLE MILE instead.
