A Very Confused Story That Goes Nowhere
11 January 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jessica Saunders (Mimi Kuzyk) is a bureaucratic CIA agent in charge of an unsuccessful operation, where her agent dies and gets no information. She is assigned for a field operation due to her computer skills: she should investigate Dr. Maclean's (Donald Sutherland) experiment. She flies to the distant place where Dr. Maclean is working and there, she meets the twenty-one years old Ken Ryan (Corin Nemec), the girl Niki and Dr. Maclean's team, and she gets very close to Ken. She finds out that Dr. Maclean is making experiences with lifeforce, trying to store this energy. Further, Ken has leukemia, is going to die very soon and has given his death for the success of the experiment; and Niki has autism and is the link to reach the `world of the dead'. This theme having a better director, an improved screenplay and a more adequate cast could be a good movie, like those sci-fi from the 1950's or 1960's. However, the character of Jessica is very confused and makes the story very boring, and many situations are not well resolved. I really did not like this movie. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): `Morte Programada – Desafiando a Última Fronteira' (`Programmed Death – Challenging the Last Frontier')
