The Apocalypse (1997)

How bad is it? It's a very poor science fiction film that could've worked.
Should you see it? If you have nothing better to do.

When I heard that this film was Sandra Bernhard vs. Laura San Giacomo, I had to see it. San Giacomo plays a computer programmer on board a giant ship filled with an unstable element that will explode in Earth's magnetic field, destroying the entire planet. It's up to a salvage pilot and bartender to stop her. There's also hijackers. There's Shakespearean quotes. There's Three Little Pigs quotes. There's a bit of a budget and okay special effects; there just isn't a script. The writer of this film wrote four turkeys in a year and then disappeared.
