** You would think that the idea to send out an additional spaceship (preferably more than one) tasked with nuking the asteroid in the ''unlikely'' scenario the first ''Messiah'' crew would fail their mission would have occured to somebody involved in putting together the most critical project in the history of mankind.


Added DiffLines:

* TrailersAlwaysLie: According to Morgan Freeman's narration in the official trailer, two comets were discovered heading for Earth. In the actual movie, there is only one comet to start with; the other one is actually a large piece of the first, nuked off by the ''Messiah'' crew.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: The missiles fired at the two comets upon their final approach to Earth miss their targets for no reason other than plot convenience.



* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Justified...sort of. The comet splashes down in the Atlantic Ocean - specifically, in Cape Hatteras, which is just off North Carolina. North America, South America, western Europe and western Africa all get swamped by the massive tsunami; Asia and Australia are apparently completely spared. In any case, with a few exceptions, the entire film takes place either around New York, Washington DC, or "in the soft limestone hills of Missouri."

That alone could be handwaved, at least until we learn the other comer will hit the Earth nowhere else than California, disregarding the fact how improbable it would be for it to land less than 3000 miles away from the first impact zone.

* SuicideMission: The crew of the spaceship ''Messiah'' assign themselves one last mission, well aware of the fact that the remaining nukes to destroy the comet will have to be armed and detonated inside the ''Messiah'' cargo bay.
