Storyline

In the heat of an American desert, Captain Jean Farrell arrives at a secret military installation, run by the enigmatic Doctor Harlan Jessup. Jessup is conducting 'Operation Sandman', an experiment involving a group of soldiers who have volunteered to be injected with 'the Juice', a drug which enables them to function without sleep. The team of soldiers, led by gruff and abusive 'Gunny' Riggins continually takes part in Virtual Reality scenarios whereby they face terrorists, kidnappers, guerrillas and a plethora of other situations that demand split-second timing, and undying obedience in the face of danger. They have continued for nearly three weeks without sleep, and their response times and reactions are better than ever. But there is a problem. As the test continues, the soldiers begin to see 'freaks', hallucinations that intrude on their consciousness and disturb their concentration. Jessup is on the point of getting government funding for the project and cannot afford hiccups, ... Written by Helen Chavez

Not bad for a TV movie
22 February 2000 | by (new york,usa) – See all my reviews

This movie really isn't bad at all..the plot isn't too bad..the acting is ok and most of all my favorite wrestler,Hardcore Holly is in it...the downside to this is: he's killed off in the first 10 minutes! why why! UPN was promoting this because Holly was in it,oh well they use this stuff "the juice" that allows you to remain awake for weeks and give you heightened senses..super soldier serum kinda for you captain america fans. They start having these "freaks" or hallucinations..that turn fatal as one of their own(Holly) dies while enduring a "freak". An army inspector is sent to find out what happened. She thinks its the "juice" thats causing these "freaks". The "freaks" just keep getting worse and worse for the soldiers..Richard Tyson(Kindergarten Cop) is underused here as his role is kinda shallow..I don't know the other people except for Ron Perlman who plays the scientist who developed the "juice"..sometimes its confusing to figure out whats real and whats just hallucinations but i think you'll enjoy this flick. The ending is sort of surprising so I won't give it away..rent it if it ever becomes available because its not bad at all and its neat to see hardcore holly in a movie ..my score 6 out of 10
