Samantha Swoboda: This is it. My dad's been sick for a while, so I've been picking up some of his repo jobs on the sly. I've tagged along so many of these, I can do 'em in my sleep.
Miles Kitchen: Isn't this stealing?
Samantha Swoboda: Not if you don't pay your bills. See, you've got your master keys, your lockpicks, your right angle screwdrivers, your extractors, and of course, the modified slim jim.

Creative movie enjoyable for all ages!
10 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For anyone who has ever seen "The Secret World of Alex Mack" on Nickelodeon, Louan Gideon played the evil CEO of a chemical plant. She's back, and she's playing 2nd-in-command of a corrupt technological research lab. John Nielsen, also from the above show, returns. The movie stars Henry Winkler as the notorious Mr. Crow, who has designed a machine which enhances the immune system and gives its wearer incredible strength. Enter Drew (Tim Redwine), whose father is a scientist at CROW Research.

Drew's father believes that the machine is to help people overcome their physical disabilities, but Mr. Crow actually intends to sell it to foreign nations as a machine for the "ultimate soldier." As well, the machine fries anyone's immune system if worn for more than 20 minutes! Well, Mr. Crow and his assistant Ms. Grimes don't care, and they intend to have Drew's dad wear it -- but he has a heart disease, and it would kill him in 5 minutes flat.

Needless to say, Drew bands together with some less-than-popular friends, intention being to break into CROW and steal the augmentor. Crow wants them destroyed at any cost, though . . . even with all their wits, can the P.U.N.K.S. (their group name) stop the diabolical plot?
