Good movie, but way too much language. Would have been good without it.

An atomic research experiment goes awry in St. Louis, Missouri unleashing not only a big black hole, but also a creature from beyond that feeds on electricity through the streets of this Midwest city.
Whatever happened to Judd Nelson. He used to be such a good actor. What's he doing in this garbage? I can't believe SyFy cancelled Caprica to make room for junk like this.

Pretty good follow-up to the original. It won't ever have the cult status of Wall Street, though.

A fun, entertaining movie, that pokes more than a little fun at marriage and action movie cliches.

Well, The Mummy Returns was no The Mummy; The Scorpion King was no The Mummy Returns; this is surely no The Scorpion King.
I could barely sit through this junk. Randy Couture is so bad it's painful. The first one gave us the "People's Eyebrow;" this should get the "People's Elbow" right in the "People's Trash Can."

Looks like Transporter 3 totally ripped of the plot of this dog... and did a much better job with it. Someone should stuff Timothy Oliphant in the trunk.
18. Solar Attack (2006 TV Movie)
PG | 91 min | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
When the sun's increasing expulsions of plasma threaten to ignite methane in our atmosphere, international tensions rise while scientists race for a solution to avoid natural disaster.
Pretty funny in an MST3K kind of way. I kept waiting for Marc Decascos to yell "Allez cusine!!"

A stubborn teenager enlists the help of a tough U.S. Marshal to track down her father's murderer.
Votes: 266,090 | Gross: $171.24M
One cannot reasonably compare this to the John Wayne classic. They are of a different era and culture. That said, this is a better movie.

With an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train barreling toward a city, a veteran engineer and a young conductor race against the clock to prevent a catastrophe.
Votes: 164,040 | Gross: $81.56M
Could be the best film I've seen so far this year, if it wasn't for Inception. Edge-of-your seat kind of stuff, close enough to reality to make it feel real. The Tony Scott-Denzel Washington juggernaught continues on.

A politically charged epic about the state of the oil industry in the hands of those personally involved and affected by it.
Votes: 116,548 | Gross: $50.82M
