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

Pretty basic...
27 May 2004 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

I don't really understand all the positive comments for this movie.

Aren't people tires of slow-mo car chases ? Those might be

technically good, but they are inserted in the action without subtlety

and in a way that screams "nineties direct-to-videos !". Why start

with a car chase, when we have no idea who is being chased and

can't root for him without any background, when a poor ordinary

schmuk pursued by total strangers could be an interesting angle.

Besides, it is just an ordinary "Man who knew too much" kinda

story : bystander suddenly gets on a secret, a conspiracy wants to

shut him up, he has to get to the bottom of things to avoid being

killed. It's a sent-up of "The Fugitive" style manhunts, aloso

explored in Andrew Davis' "Chain reaction". Here, the only thing is

to find a corporate villain - here pharmaceutical companies.

Granted, this one is not the worse of the crop and Dean Cain is

convincing, but it's really a run-of-the-mill thriller with a few ideas

thrown in. Still, I have to watch it again to see if I missed

something.
