What a waste of potential
25 February 2001 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I really tried hard to like this movie, but most of it's elements just don't work. The acting is merely good enough, so is the music. Some of the CGI effects look good, some even great, but there aren't enough of them to hide the low budget. Some sets, like the inside of the glass wall, reminded me of old Star Trek episodes - TOS, that is. What's left is an intriguing scenario, ripped apart by the most disappointing feature: the plot. It starts well, descents into a slow and boring trip and even manages to screw up the showdown. "For the Cause" (aka Warhammer) is more like stretched version of a weak Outer Limits episode. Too bad Tim and David Douglas failed in bringing their obvious passion for film making into the movie.
