Blu-ray Review: EARTH’S FINAL HOURS

earths final hours bd

When bizarre radiation storms suddenly erupt, defense systems are wiped out, polar outposts are incinerated and space debris blasts holes clear through our planet. Now a tough federal, a cool government scientist and his rebel genius son have uncovered a magnetospheric nightmare that could stop the Earth’s rotation. Do a disgraced inventor and an archaic satellite hold the sole keys to our survival, or is the clock ticking towards the annihilation of mankind?

While EARTH’S FINAL HOURS story plot is somewhat mediocre at best, it’s the characters and the cool special effects that make it watchable. The cast included familiar faces like Hamza Adams, Julia Benson, Cameron Bright, Sage Brocklebank and a few others. Fan favorite Bruce Davison also shows up for a few minutes before he gets knocked off but he plays an important part in the movie. Those added along with the the amazing looking radiation storms were an added plus to this disaster flick that had previously aired on Syfy.

There’s a little action that’s included in the movie along with some crude betrayal from government bad guys, one in particular that you just want to see him get what’s coming to him.

The movie is directed by David Hogan who has cranked out several of the popular Syfy Saturday night movies. I feel like he did a good job with what he had to work with. It was the story that was the weakest part of the movie. I mean the whole corrupt government part is totally believable because it’s a fact! The silly part and might I add, something that has been numerous times is the fact that we watch two teenagers save the planet with a dead scientists computer network that had been hidden forever.  I mean it’s cheesy and all but easily watchable and really exciting at times.

The packaging art on the Blu-ray case is pretty cool and should be appealing to sci-fi fans. It gives a hint for what you can expect to see in the movie, instead of leading you on like some other movie art has done in the past.

Bottom line is, watching Earth’s Final Hours on this Blu-ray was a pretty cool watch but nothing really original but it fits right in with the rest of the Syfy natural disaster movies. Pretty cool for a TV movie. The Blu-ray drops on April 2nd.
