Did You Know?

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 »

This is one of those movies were you wish the characters were real!, 14 October 2001

This is one truly great film, but I can see why others may not like it. When watching this, I tried not to link the movie with it's comic book counterpart. I like to think of it as an alternate version. So that means no Synch. No Chamber. No Husk. But this in a way is a good thing. Because of that, we were introduced to a very cool character, Refrax (Randall Slavin). You know the type. Bleached spiked hair, sunglasses, smart ass, self centered. You know, cool!

Anyway, the plot is about the group, and this mad scientist who travels into dreams and wants to kill Jubilee and Skin for the X-Factor in their brains. Not that hard to understand, and works.

The parts of the movie that were the best though, didn't revolve around fighting the evil doer, but rather the teens being just that....teens! It has this feel about it, that makes you think, "Those guys are cool, I wish I could hang with them". And then you realize that it's a movie, and they are only actors who are probably stuck up in real life. I'm not saying they are like that, they're probably are really nice, but the fact is they arn't best friends, nor do they even see each other anymore.

Thats maybe what attracts me to this movie. The fact that I know they arn't real, but I can keep them together for as long as I watch the film. Thats also a scary feeling.

Well, I give this movie a 10/10, and I sure hope that a sequel and TV series is made, using the SAME cast.
