Fighting fire with fire..., 17 March 2008
Author: Frank Markland from United States

Bryan Genesse stars as Parker a super FBI agent who is captured by a renegade general who plans on using a robotic chip to control the actions of soldiers, of course Genesse overrides the chip and finds himself the only one able to stop a sabotage of a peace making treaty. Human Timebomb is a fairly mindless effort which occasionally has a few moments where the action sequences succeed, sadly though these are few and far between. The main idea is stolen from Universal Soldier but lacks the budget, star pairing and indeed the ambition of said film. The star pairing rather is played on to Bryan Genesse and Joe Lara, two actors who've never made much of an impression on yours truly. Genesse is actually okay in the lead role, as is Lara but the movie just is too simplistic, predictable and routine to even work passably well. The one thing going for this movie is that it is at least better than Nightsiege:Project Shadowchaser II starring Genesse and Hologram Man starring Lara. Aside from that though this movie is the type of forgettable fare that is only for a late night where absolutely nothing else is on.

*1/2 out of 4-(Poor)
