When Cal is examining the missile specs, the display shows the yield as 0.7 kJ (kiloJoules), the same amount of energy used by a 100W light bulb in seven seconds - scarcely terrifying as a missile. See more »

woof!
3 April 2000 | by (Annapolis, MD USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was poor. And that's being kind. Predictable plot obviously written for mass consumption by a passive suburbanite audience forever looking for that happy ending. Sounds familiar. Please. The story was disconnected without any shred of creativity. It wasn't so much that the actors were bad as they had nothing to work with. They sure didn't seem convincing. Stay away from this dog.
