Storyline

On the eve of the new millennium, a nervous military leader assembles a team to help him deal with an unforeseen problem, as they are being alerted of a long missing nuclear missile hidden somewhere deep in the jungle which is set to go off in January 2000, due to the millennium bug! It's up to them to race against time to stop it before it is too late and they are doomed! Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Good concept, poorly tied to the false millenium
23 January 2000 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Nice idea. A secret silo has a computer failure at the change of the year (y2k, get the title?). A skilled team is coerced to go in and fix it, but their efforts are fatigued by drug lords and internal US armed forces strife. Unfortunately the characters are hollow and the idea is poorly executed. Remove the y2k theme and the glib characters, and there might be a solid movie here. Definitely worthy of a remake! If you watch it, don't sweat the details (which aren't terrible, just bad) and try to enjoy the underlying concept. While the current version is a 'MacGyver' movie (at best), a remake could be on par with 'Force 10 from Navarone.' If you like tension, a good plot, well developed characters, and nice plot twists... wait for the remake.
