Solar Flare is a thrilling disaster movie that depicts the effects of a massive solar storm on Earth. The movie opens with Dr. Sloan Parker (Michelle Clunie), an astrophysicist who is tracking the solar activity from her observatory in Alaska. She notices a big flare coming from the sun, and she immediately alerts the government officials, including the President of the United States.

Meanwhile, we meet a few other characters - a family of four on a camping trip, a group of survivors in a subway train, and a team of researchers on a scientific mission in Antarctica. As the solar storm hit the planet, chaos ensues. The power grids go down, communication systems fail, and people begin to realize the gravity of the situation.

Dr. Parker, along with a small group of scientists, takes shelter in a bunker as they try to find a way to save the world. They soon discover that the solar storm has caused a massive amount of radiation to bombard the planet, and it's causing people to get sick and die.

As the movie progresses, the characters face numerous challenges, such as accessing vital information, evacuating people from danger zones, and trying to develop a cure for radiation sickness. To make matters worse, there's also an impending second wave of solar flares that could hit the planet at any moment. Will the characters be able to save humanity from this catastrophic event?

The movie has an impressive lineup of actors, including Michelle Clunie, who does a fantastic job of playing the intelligent and determined Dr. Parker. Tracey Gold plays an excellent role as the mother trying to protect her family from the disaster. Chris Brochu provides comic relief as the nerdy intern who finds himself in the company of scientists during the crisis.

The special effects are particularly noteworthy as the movie portrays the chaos and destruction caused by the solar storm. The cinematography of the massive explosions and the widespread devastation is impressive and impactful.

Despite the fictional aspects of the movie, the filmmakers have put in a significant amount of effort to ensure that the scientific details are accurate. They have consulted with actual astrophysicists to understand the concept of solar flares and the impact it could have on the planet. This attention to detail enhances the realism of the movie.

Overall, Solar Flare is a gripping disaster movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. It's an impressive depiction of the catastrophic effects of solar flares on Earth, and the effort of humanity to come together and find a solution to save themselves. If you enjoy disaster movies or post-apocalyptic thrillers, Solar Flare is a must-watch.
