Eva Soderstrom mentions the Tunguska event in Siberia to Steven Price. She states it happened in 1907, when in fact it actually occurred 30 June 1908. She refers to Tunguska as a place, while Tunguska actually refers to the Stony Tunguska River. The nearest actual place to the Tunguska event site, per Google Maps, is Vanavara, Russia, about 40 miles south of the location of the Tunguska event site. See more »

It was a good idea...
1 December 2002 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

...but it was poorly fleshed out. The writers of the movie obviously had a technical background, because they were pretty close to reality about black hole physics. And the idea about what could possibly happen if someone created a black hole right on earth, is a very fascinating question. Unfortunately, using this idea as the basis for a movie plot by itself, doesn't seem to be enough, so they threw in a romance, a bunch of murders, etc., etc.

I'd love to see this idea resurrected in some other, higher-budget movie, one day. But then in such a movie they may get the scientific principles wrong, but come up with better romances and political murders.
