Plot:

When a meteor crashes into the moon and shifts its axis, Earth’s gravity pulls the moon into the path of the planet. Now, a group of scientists must figure out how to stop the moon from hitting the earth before it’s too late…

Reviews:

“First time director Brian Nowak seems to be content to just aim the camera and let the cast yell a lot. The script by Joe Roche (Collision Earth) has dialogue that’s half techno-babble and half hysterics, Nowak must have thought it sounded more dramatic that way […] The worst thing is, despite the extreme race against time and all the obstacles thrown in our heroes’ way, there’s never any sense of danger or urgency. Meteor Moon is totally devoid of suspense or tension.” Voices from the Balcony
