I can only extend what previous author douglasp wrote with precisely describing my sentiments about this Vanishing Son IV.
When you develop interesting characters with truly interesting, at times even artistic and passionate results, particularly in first of the four... considering some limitation of this genre, Vanishing Son never deserved this embarrassing economizing $ummation of literally making a sequel for sake of sequel. The story itself is truly insulting to anyone who had seen the previous 3. Had they made some DVD release this would be at best, something to consider as barely worthy as extra feature. Alone on its own, it has nothing to do with previous movies. Surely leaves bitter taste of disappointment.
It only exploits the viewer's interest in characters with absolutely nothing to offer. Who ever made decision to even consider this idea truly had no idea what he was doing.
