Storyline

Journalism student Simon Tate thinks it's strange when four students at the university suddenly die in "unrelated" accidents. When his friend, Dr. Benjamin Roanic, becomes the prime suspect and is suddenly murdered, Simon sets out to prove his innocence. He soon discovers the students were Roanic's test subjects in a secret drug test program, and had been cured of AIDS. He is forced to run for his life, when a pharmaceutical company tries to prevent him from revealing the truth behind "Phase IV". Written by Anonymous

A new twist on an evil scientist vs. the world type of plot.
28 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A new spin of your typical evil scientist movie who want to take over the world type of story which it introduces the concept of an evil pharmaceutical company who has a cure for AIDS but makes more money not releasing the cure so people are not cured. An incredibly and irresponsibly bad and predictable sophomoric script in this movie starring Dean Cain and Brain Bosworth actually has you wanting to see more just to see how bad and predictable it can get. Dean Cain is severely beaten up by four hooligans, yet his wife and child in tow approach him after the fight inquiring, "Are you OK?" From the white haired United States Senator, the black leather wearing hooligans, the nerdy scientist the characters throughout the movie are very TV movie like are stereotypical and uncompelling. The plot introduces many twists and turns which in the end are unresolved. The spectacular panoramic views of a craggy Halifax, Nova Scotia coast momentarily divert your attention from the incredulity of the plot.
