Storyline

A doctor in Ottawa invents a miraculous machine that uses a record of a person's DNA to reverse injuries to his body. The victim of an accidental shooting, he becomes the first patient in his own machine... and awakens whole, but with his left and right reversed. Or has he, instead, slipped into a reversed parallel universe? On top of this, summer has mysteriously turned into winter, and a visiting American senator is trying to buy or steal the machine to sell it to another country for military use. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?

Goofs

Since many nutrients have asymmetrical molecular structures, a person reversed with respect to the rest of the universe would find normal food indigestible (this goof was once itself a plot element in a science fiction story - "Technical Error" by Arthur C. Clarke, written in 1946). See more »

Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits, the words THE END appear. They then spin around so that they read backwards, as if in a mirror. See more »

A fun sci-fi adventure!
18 May 2001 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

"The Random Factor" is obviously a low-budget movie, but it is a fun ride! Andrew Divoff stars in the film - he was great in Disney's "A Low Down Dirty Shame" and pretty scary in "Air Force One." Wiliam Richert who plays Alex Okeefe is brilliant. There's one actor in the film that doesn't quite work (the little doctor) but otherwise the film works. It makes you think about alot of things. I would recommend it.
