"24 hours ago you had 24 hours. Now you have only 12 hours left!"
25 November 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Here's a good way to tell if a movie is bad: The main character's name is wrong on the case. Not just spelled wrong, but completely made up. It's like the person responsible for writing the summary on the box didn't even watch it. I can't blame them.

The first part of this "movie" took place in a top-secret government research facility. However, the "filmmakers" shot these scenes in what appears to be a local high school, with chemistry classrooms serving as high-tech laboratories. Also, the characters seem to have no purpose. Maybe the director ran out of actors while casting or something. They just change who they are with no explanation or purpose and confusing hilarity ensues. Sometimes you just want to die. Watching this movie was one of those times. The case says "This is one Search you won't want to Destroy." Trust me, you will want to destroy this particular search.

I could go on and on about how bad the movie was, but what's the point in that? I'm sure there are much worse (check the Bottom 100 list for those). If you like really bad movies, you might want to give it a look. But don't say I didn't warn you.
