Storyline

Epicenter concerns brassy, beautiful Amanda Foster, a down-on-her-luck San Francisco F.B.I. Agent who's been assigned to protect a Computer Hacker-turned-State's-Witness, Nick Constantine, from the mob. On the Day of the assignment, the city is rocked by a devastating earthquake, forcing Amanda and Nick to fight their way through the ravaged city streets while being pursued by ruthless assassins and a corrupt F.B.I. Agent. Written by Jason Sledge

Attention Studio Exec's - the producers of EPICENTER are stealing from you!
22 October 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

EPICENTER commits one of the worst crimes I've ever seen commited by a film and it's creators. What's that crime you ask? Stealing! I don't blame the screenwriter. I don't blame Gary Daniels (I mean for a "B" action star he usually makes decent "B" action fare) but I do blame whoever used the scenes from METRO with Eddie Murphy and the train sequences from MONEY TRAIN and the elevator scene from SPEED. Don't beleieve me? Watch this, then watch METRO and the other movies mentioned. I thought I was the only one who would notice this but apparently I am not. It's that freaking obvious! The whole beginning chase scene is from METRO. They added two bad guy characters to focus on just because Eddie Murphy and Michael Rappaport were their stand ins. I think it's absolute bull---- that the stunt men for METRO and teh special effcets people for SPEED and MONEY TRAIN didnt get paid twice. I mean, technically they worked on this stupid waste of celluloid and didnt even receive credit (not that they'd want it) for it. This film is ridiculous! Stealing scenes from another movie is, in my opinion, the laziest, cheapest, worst thing that could be done in a film. I've already seen METRO - why would I want to see the same exact chase again? I mean, if you don't have the money to make your own movie then don't make it and like director Robert Rodriguez said, if you've written something in your script that you cant afford to shoot...rewrite the script!

Skip this movie -- It isnt worth the one star...
