Solar Crisis is a science-fiction movie that was released in 1990. The movie features an ensemble cast including Tim Matheson, Charlton Heston, and Peter Boyle. The movie is directed by Richard C. Sarafian and was produced by Wes Takahashi and Yoshio Takahashi. The plot of Solar Crisis revolves around the Earth Defense League, a group of scientists and astronauts who have been tasked with saving the planet from a catastrophic solar flare that threatens to destroy all life on Earth. The movie is set in the year 2050, and the sun has become unstable due to years of abuse by humanity. The Earth is facing a crisis, as the sun is about to release a massive explosion that will destroy the planet.

The Earth Defense League is headed by Steve Kelso (Tim Matheson), a scientist who has been given the task of leading an expedition to set off a bomb on the surface of the sun, in order to avert the solar flare. Kelso is assisted by the brilliant but troubled Dr. Michaels (Peter Boyle) and by the aging but experienced astronaut, Adm. "Skeet" Kelso (Charlton Heston).

The film starts by showcasing the efforts of the Earth Defense League as they get ready for their mission to the sun. They are quickly joined by a team of Japanese scientists led by Dr. Ohara (Tetsuro Tamba) who have developed a new type of solar shield, which will help the mission succeed.

However, things start to go awry as the mission progresses. The crew of the spaceship Prometheus begins to face several technical difficulties which threaten to derail the mission entirely. Meanwhile, Adm. Kelso uncovers a conspiracy involving the corporations that are funding the mission. The corporations have their own agenda, and they are willing to risk the lives of the astronauts to further their own interests.

As the spaceship approaches the sun, the crew must deal with a wave of solar flares that threatens to destroy the ship. In the midst of all this, the astronauts must also confront their own demons as they come to terms with the enormity of their mission. Finally, they reach the sun and deploy the bomb, but not before they face even more challenges that could jeopardize their mission.

Solar Crisis is a fast-paced and exciting science-fiction movie that offers a unique and thought-provoking take on the dangers of abusing our environment. The movie showcases a talented cast, including Charlton Heston, who gives a standout performance as Adm. Kelso. The movie uses stunning computer-generated imagery to depict the sun and other astronomical phenomena, which adds to the overall immersive experience.

Overall, Solar Crisis is a thrilling and engaging movie that offers a unique look at the dangers that we face as a species if we do not take care of our planet. The movie combines thrilling action scenes and stunning visuals to create a memorable and thought-provoking science-fiction adventure.
