Goofs

When McNeil, and Gemmel are retrieving the Virus from the storage area. It shows an exterior shot of Gemmel using what looks like a laser pointer to cut the hatch of the virus storage unit. It shows her cutting a huge circle that's wider then the hatch, and an interior shot of the laser cutting a circle into the storage container. Yet in the next shot the hatch opens as normal with no evidence of the storage unit having ever been cut into. See more »

Steve Guttenberg trying to be Steven Seagal
26 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow... this is the kind of movie that makes you wonder who's idea this was and what soup kitchen are they eating at now. To say this was bad is an insult to the bad movies we all know and love.

When I saw Guttenberg's name in the TV guide I figured it would be a spoof... maybe it should have been. Could have made for a better movie.

Look for the scene where they are in an airplane in mid flight with the door open and there is no wind what so ever. They could have sprung for a fan at least.

Look for several Canadian & c-list actors in the movie. This is the kind of movie that litters the b-rate cable stations you never watch except on a rainy Sunday.
