Storyline

A television program is interrupted by a news network announcing that three meteors have hit the United States, France and China. At first, it seems natural but after interviews by scientists and eyewitness seems to suggest that it is not. Three more meteors are coming and the various Earth governments combine forces to stop them. Written by <cs_rapozo@hccadb.hcc.hawaii.edu> (Helen Rapozo)

Did You Know?

Trivia

Early in the film, the town "Grover's Mill," Wyoming is mentioned. "Grover's Mill," New Jersey was the landing site of the first cylinder in Orson Welles' radio broadcast "War of the Worlds," which was an inspiration for this movie. See more »

Goofs

The meteors are said to have hit at exactly 45 degrees north latitude. On the maps shown in the movie, one, Impact Site Alpha, hit in the Thunder Basin Grasslands of Wyoming, approximately 100 miles south of Wyoming's northern border. Wyoming's northern border runs along the 45th parallel. The impact in France occurred 20 miles south Lourdes. Lourdes is at 43 degrees north. See more »

Crazy Credits

The final view of the great computer display at NASA when the many meteors appear resembles the screen in the video game Space Invaders. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Madacy DVD, and so far the only known video release, has altered the film's opening slightly. Without Warning starts off with a "late, late show" movie playing before being interrupted by the news bulletins. At one point, the "film's credits" are displayed, giving direction credit to Mario Bava. These credits have been removed for the DVD. See more »

Good stuff... NOT!!!!
18 February 2001 | by jelorduySee all my reviews

I just saw Without a Warning on TNT Latin America, and to tell you the truth at first I thought it was good, THEN, when the going went tough all the Sci-Fi cliches went online. I agree with the comment here that says that why are we suppose to be the bad guys just because we are trying to defend our own turf.

Look: Someone is dropping BIG rocks on our backyard... come on, is that equal to intelligent extraterrestrial life??? I mean, that is a whale of a way to establish first contact with a new form of life.

But to tell you the truth I just loved the doctor that went way over the top screaming that we just declared war on an alien race: "we are the most violent race in the galaxy"... Really? Could you tell me his sources.

If this were really, really a vastly advance race trying to reach us, after the aborted first contact, what would be a logical course of action? Leave Earth alone, blockade the Solar System, wait a 100 years and lets see if the children on Earth stop playing with fire... hope they grow up after a century... mean while, lets move to the next system.
