Eddie Kasalivich, an undergraduate at the University of Chicago, works as a technician for a scientific team that discovers an alternative, low-cost, pollution-free fuel source. When one of the chief scientists is murdered and the invention stolen, Eddie and physicist Lily Sinclair are framed for it and have to flee for their lives, with the FBI, CIA and other involved parties in close pursuit. Paul Shannon, Eddies mentor, is the director of a scientific company which - unknown to Eddie - has commercial interests in the invention. Eddie and Lily set out to find the stolen invention and hopefully clear themselves of the false charges. Written by

The scene in which Keanu Reeves barely escapes on the motorcycle was shot mainly with blue screens and explosion effects added in post-production. The live sequences had Reeves riding a motorcycle hooked up to the back of truck with a camera filming tight close ups. See more »
There seems to have been some confusion when writing the parts concerning the ostensible clean energy source - specifically, the writers are confusing the burning of hydrogen with hydrogen fusion. The two concepts meet almost head-on during Dr. Barkley's presentation in the beginning of the film; first, he holds up a glass of water and claims there's enough energy in it to power a whole city (which sort-of lines up with the energy density of hydrogen fusion), then almost immediately after goes on to speak about combustion of hydrogen.
It should be noted that while hydrogen fusion would indeed provide enormous amounts of energy, burning hydrogen derived from water produces less energy than it takes to split the water into oxygen and hydrogen. See more »
As the end credits come to the end, the music fades out and a rumble gets louder and louder. This is the start of a shockwave resulting from the massive explosion at the end of the film. The viewpoint is of Keanu Reeves who by now is in a helicopter and comes straight on screen after the last of the credits has gone up. The ground implodes briefly and you hear Agent Ford say "Whoa!".

Actually, the above poster is incorrect. Reeves is a machinist in this movie who is helping the scientists build the parts not a scientist. And that matters in this movie because Reeves actually does pretty well for once as an actor.
The concept of the movie isn't a new one, an industrial-military conspiracy to control technology because the masses aren't "ready" to deal with it yet. Freeman actually played the most interesting character. He kind of flip-flops throughout the movie and you're not sure what to think of him until the final scene.
Regardless, it wasn't the best movie nor the worst movie ever made. Reeves acted pretty well and the writing was semi-believable. If you're looking for a fast paced movie that you don't have to think too much on
this movie isn't a bad rental to see.
