Trivia

Ryan Thomas Johnson (The Slug) said Martin Sheen was really pulling his hair at the end of the movie when he tries to stop the bomb. He tried to convince him to do a "stage pull" but he just stared at him blankly and said, "Hmmm...". He continued to pull his hair. See more »

Not a bad one
6 August 1999 | by (Malta, Europe) – See all my reviews

Well, it's not a bad movie.

We see a lot of movies like this one - a couple of kids which do something and then end up in a sort of adventure.

This one features the F.B.I. and the President of the U.S.A. Three boys find an atomic bomb and they threat the F.B.I. that they are going to make it explode if they don't do what they are requesting.

You will like the movie, if you have the same age of the boys.

The cast :

Martin Sheen plays in this movie but frankly, I think that someone else would have done better in that role.

My vote : - 70% -
