Trivia

The characters of Buff and Refrax were created especially for the movie. Characters such as Chamber and Penance were left out because the SFX needed to portray them would have raised the budget too high. See more »

It did have potential
18 May 1999 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

Quite frankly this Tv movie wasn't that bad. the actors did the best they could but it had such a terrible script. First off the whole concept of dream dimensions should have been thrown in the garbage. why can't writers just write a simple story? why do they have to complicate stories with some life altering philosophy? its superhero movie!! based on some pretty serious issuses (racism) so why try to fix something if its not broken?!!! The actors did a good job i think. some changes to the movie from the comic were understandable. i mean not every adaptation is always exact, come on lets be realistic. One thing though they should have mentioned the X-men in some point of the movie. thats all just drop a comment like well the owners of the house are away or Prof.Xaviar has left us in charge of you. or something referring to the X-men hell they're in their mansion!. Anyhow the actors weren't that bad, im sorry to hear that the entire cast from this movie has been scrapped and will be replaced with a new one. Oh well at least i was smart enough to tape it.
