IMDb should allow a vote of zero
5 November 2000 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

The claim that this movie is Isaac Asimov's story "Nightfall" is an absolute lie. Asimov's descendents should sue the producers and director for slander for demeaning the Good Doctor's reputation. If you ever see this movie in a rental store back slowly away. It is a waste of video tape.

Unfortunately, I paid good money to see this piece of c**p in a theater. As I left, the ticket guy asked why everyone leaving that movie seemed to be angry. I told him it was because they had wasted money on the worst movie ever made. It was scheduled for a one-week run. After 5 days they quit showing the movie and left the theater empty. Actually, watching a dark empty screen would be an improvement over this wreched junk. I can't think of enough bad words to describe it. (Well, I can, but when I used them in a review IMDb rejected it.)
