To have such weapon is a big responsibility.
1 April 2014 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

This movie is the best in this thread. Story about teenager whom all hurt and considered worthless, he was made to kneel all people and made them tremble with fear, without deliberately killings. This movie is filled with feelings. The movie makes you think. Not just fun for once.

Teen found the secret thermal weapon, that could destroy the entire planet. The U.S. army wants to declare martial law. This is a very topical plot.

Michael Miner, gives meaning to every scene of the film. Teen imagines himself a stranger from another planet, and that's usually fantasize of children who no longer needed nobody, it helps them cope with depression. His mother left him. His stepfather is a washed-up crazy drunk. Sister, busy personal life.

Having caught a powerful weapon, boy is not a killing spree, he only scares their abusers. He only explodes cars and empty buildings. It correctly. The film is entertaining, good special effects.

The film, which is a must for everyone of us.
