Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse (2014)

Another Zodiac Killer

Whilst an expert in his field, archaeology Professor Neil Martin (Joel Gretsch - Of Two Minds) hasn't worked in a few years due to his divorce and choosing to be a fulltime father to his now teenage son Colin (Reilly Dolman - Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story). But that all changes when a research company come calling as there has been something unusual found in a mine in Peru and they want Neil to head down there to examine the strange discovery. But what they find not only links to some unexplained meteor storms but they also find a radioactive stone which could be part of a series of destructive natural phenomena going on connected to a ninth planet.

I would never say I was a champion of made for TV sci-fi, disaster movies, as "Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse" is, but I often find myself enjoying them more than many others seem to do. I guess I actually watch them more to be entertained by everything which is bad about them, be it the often nervy acting or the unnatural nature of the special effects. But some times these movies just don't entertain either in a good or a bad sort of way and sadly "Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse" is one of those movies which ends up dull nonsense.

Now I am not going to waste much time on "Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse" because it simply isn't worth it and unsurprisingly sticks to the usual made for TV sci-fi nonsense. As such we have something discovered which is connected to a series of destructive phenomena and we get scenes of our hero and friends racing around in a jeep avoiding being hit by meteors or caught up in giant waves, which appear from nowhere and look less than realistic. It is all typical and sadly just as typical is that we have a star name in Christopher Lloyd in the movie yet his part ends up minor and fortunately forgettable, in fact all the acting in "Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse" is fortunately forgettable.

What this all boils down to is that "Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse" is sadly a weak made for TV sci-fi, disaster movie which unsurprisingly isn't very good but sadly doesn't even manageable to be enjoyable in a bad way.
