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

Screw humanity!
9 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my guilty pleasures is The Marine. Not a great movie, but fun nonetheless. This is not The Marine, as Heather Mathieson is no Kelly Carlson. Dean Cain is certainly no John Cena either, but he did give a credible performance as an ex-jock (and Navy Seal) who was now a journalism student working on a college paper when his lifelong buddy dies.

Conspiracy theorists would have a field day with this film about a cure for AIDS that is covered up by multiple deaths so the pharmaceutical companies can go on looking for cures and selling pills.

There are some exciting car chases and crashes, lots of killings, some good explosions, and bad guys galore. Cain is all alone in fighting them all off to find the truth and save his family.

Oh, have some popcorn and enjoy.
