A paean to Virtuosity?
20 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though one of the more stylish SciFi Channel Original films to be churned out in the mid 90's Bombshell is a technological paean to Virtuosity. Brightly colored vinyl clothing, trendy scifi plotline (nanotech), ambiguously futuristic LA location shots and an over ambient techno soundtrack grace this film, that on its surface is more glitz than actual story. But that is its advantage. Bombshell doesn't try to get into the overly heady world of nanotechnology and its lauded but theoretical uses but instead takes a nice cyberpunk premise and runs with it full tilt. It plays with the future so freely that its like watching a collision of J.G.Ballard, with fashions by Hot Topic and Post artschool film mixed with Popular Science until you have Henry Thomas racing down the canals of the LA river in his futurisitic speedster, a scientist desparate to remove a destructive part of himself and unable to do so until he obeys his unseen master to the finish. Its not rocket science or even quantum science but it is a surreal and inoffenseve little diversion that would be welcome in a tech-nightmare moviethon.
