Goofs

After blowing up the laboratory and making his way to escape, Dan kidnaps a guy who is forced to take him to the military base. In the car, the news on the radio tells that Dan is the main suspect of the laboratory attack because he wanted to revenge his son's death. Such news is strange in the movie's context because during most part of the movie the army was trying to cover up the story about possible victims of the gas leaking; and Dan hasn't talked to anyone about his son's death except to one doctor; so it's never explained about how the media got the news.

Toxic...
28 July 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Scrappy, ultimately pointless scare-tactics drama with George C. Scott playing a rancher who, along with his son, is accidentally sprayed with toxic chemicals by the military while on a camp-out. Scott made his directorial debut here and does a fine job handling the actors, as well as himself. Unfortunately, Scott's continuity as a filmmaker is spotty; worse, his vision of this material is singularly unimaginative, with routine action and set-ups which don't involve the viewer. The anti-military undermining isn't so much provocative as it is half-baked, and the narrative of the film strays. Martin Sheen, Richard Basehart and Barnard Hughes are all worth-watching here, and Scott as always is a magnetic screen performer, but this 'message film' is awfully tepid. ** from ****
