    8 / 10

    A team of oil drillers must land on an asteroid and plant a nuclear warhead into it`s core so it can be obliterated before it obliterates. Bruce Willis, Ben Afflack, Will Patton, Steve Buscemi, Liv Tyler and Billy Bob Thornton all star in this above average but still not brilliant film. Good acting and an OTT storyline.


    Presented in 2.35:1. Great clear picture.


    Presented in 5.1. Great sound with the speakers making the most of the explosion and special effect sounds.

    An above average bunch of features which does start to feel a bit samey after you`ve watched a few.
