Overview

In the tradition of The Day After Tomorrow, Deep Impact, and Armageddon, Peter Fonda, Tia Carrere, Luke Perry, and Emma Samms star in Supernova, a three-and-a-half hour miniseries originally created and produced for The Hallmark Channel. In this special effects-laden sci-fi actioner, Fonda plays a Dr. Shepard, a famed astrophysicist who discovers -- all too late -- that the sun's age has been miscalculated, and that it will supernova in a matter of only days -- destroying the Earth and everything else in our solar system. As Dr. Shepard flees to Africa, his prophecy materializes: enormous solar particles careen toward the Earth, destroying its international landmarks. Meanwhile, a group of scientists begin to search for the missing Shepard and a paranoid government agent played by Lance Henriksen schemes to help a small group of civilians escape the coming disaster by furnishing underground bunkers to shield and protect them.

    Not one of the best disaster movies.....

    I enjoy watching any type of disaster movie that portrays the end of the world, but this definitely is at the bottom of the list. First, it was 3 HOURS LONG, and could have probably been cut down to much less. Also, there were extra story lines occuring at the same time as the "sun exploading" scenario, which was probably not needed. The visual effects were not done well, and it was often hard to follow because of the terminology and poor explanations. Overall, I feel this is a great topic to make a movie out of, but it was done in a poor fashion.
