Storyline

Fuming over the departure of his wife Vivian and the cutting of his research funding, crazy nuclear scientist Rogers Henry constructs Medusa, a thermonuclear bomb capable of generating a continent-sized electro-magnetic pulse; such EMP could effectively destroy a computer-based society. He dupes Vivian into bringing it to the Pentagon to exact his final revenge on the government, rigging it so it will explode before its count-down if Vivian's pacemaker isn't within fifteen feet of it. Medusa arms itself in the air aboard Scott Nash's 737 cargo plane, and with Hurricane Sigrid about to hit the coast, nobody wants to let them land. Based on the novel by John J. Nance. Written by Jeff Cross <blackjac_1998@yahoo.com>

Did You Know?

Goofs

An underwater nuclear explosion would not cause an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). EMP occurs when the pressure wave from a high-altitude blast forces molecules in the upper atmosphere previously charged with electricity to discharge it. An underwater burst would also not produce a fireball above the surface but instead would produce an enormous cloud of water vapor. See more »

Above average tv movie delivers the goods
9 September 1999 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Nice to see a tv movie that can actually generate suspense and tension rather than make you reach for the remote in boredom.

Some decent acting, plenty of sharp dialogue, with kudos to Chris Noth, Martin Sheen and Vincent Spano.

I don't generally give tv movies the time of day, but this grabbed my interest and held me there for three hours solid. It was great to see it all in one go with no commercial breaks, the time really did fly by - pardon the pun!

Despite one or two moments that stretch the plausibility factor, if you like a good political thriller, this is definitely worthy of your time.
