Nothing wrong with this at all. Watch for yourself and you decide. Not sure what people who gave bad reviews wanted. It's not a low buget film. Was made over 10 years ago (Jan 22 now). I had seen it before and still am going to watch part II straight away.

A decent double bill with Part 2
I have seen a lot worse than this double feature length TV drama of physicists trying to ‘deep mine’ energy from Dark Matter using a Particle Accelerator with potentially cataclysmic results. The science and associated set designs are more than adequate and it has a decent score. The acting was OK too with some decent performances from the main cast. As long as you are not expecting anything more than a sofa binge made for TV type drama it is certainly watchable.

The back story drama is weak however and Hallmark gushy ie broken relationships, bereavement issues etc and the depiction of the eco-activists in stupid masks trying to halt Proteus’s experiments is dated and uninformed - they come across as petulant kids rather than people representing a significantly shared world view as they do today. That for me was the only real annoyance otherwise I found Part 1 and Part 2 (also included on Prime) of Eve of Destruction reasonably credible and entertaining for some fill in viewing time if you have not much else to watch.

Do these disaster movies never change?
A 2 part film, it has all the stock characters one expects of low budget rubbish films of this sort. The single parent scientist (usually this character has an estanged argumentative wife) with the inevitable stroppy "teen" daughter who causes trouple, the obnoxious alpha female scientist who knows better than everyone else and the corrupt businessman who cares only about power and money. Yes, all the usual stock characters. This time however the world is saved by a Russian power linesman who of course dies saving humanity. Tedious, predictable, boring and a waste of time.
