Dr. John Matthewson:
Now, the beta synchrotron sends the electrons through this magnet which bends the course of them down to the reaction vessel. Stay away from that elbow joint. All right. Bran, you want to get that? Now, this is a tunable excimer laser. It's tuned to the exact resonance of the plutonium-239 that's in the reaction vessel down at that end. Now, I think we're all set. Hit it.

Strictly targeted for the teenage market, this bomb reinforces illegal and unacceptable behavior in an off handed way. A fine cast is wasted on a story best left untold. If the writers ever had any message to convey it is lost in this unreal movie of improbables. The writers would have you believe that a high school student constructs a 50 meg-a-ton atomic bomb in a relatively short period of time with little or no facilities at his disposal. Then after being seconds away from destroying Ithaca, New York and its population, he becomes the hero of his peers. If you ever wondered how Columbine High could happened, take a look at this farce. John Lithgow, a fine actor in his own right, deserves better.
