SyFy. Brian Krause, Najarra Townsend. Your typical astrophysicist assembles a team to find a way to shield Earth from a devastating burst of radiation released. By an unstable star in a nearby galaxy thriller. It’s only 87 minutes, so it’s got that going for it. A scientist with an awesomely bad Russian accent, some mysterious middle eastern bad guys who don’t understand all the nukes we are sending into space are for good, not evil, a wife & daughter struggling an dessert road to get to shelter in that old cave the family used to visit, and the usual tornadoes being whipped up by the impending doom are all just added bitter flavors to this truly bad movie. SyFy is awesome. They must spend tens or even hundreds of dollars on special effects, possibly getting a two-fer as the same crack team of experts could do FX and script.
