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

Better than expected
31 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This seemed like pretty standard B-movie fare when I decided to see it. Dean Cain and Brian Bosworth pretty much guarantee a mediocre movie at best. But I was a bit surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie. I am not saying this is a great movie or a must see, but I did enjoy watching it.

The premise is kind of standard, guy's best friend does something to get into trouble with the really powerful bad guys. So this guy ends up having to defeat the bad guys. Dean Cain plays the hero and does a fairly good job. Brian Bosworth is the head thug and was quite surprising. As an actor he has come a long way (although he did start way behind so that isn't saying too much).

Anyway, if you are into this kind of movie, you might just enjoy it. If you don't like this particular genre, the best steer clear, because while it is fairly good, it won't win any converts.
