Goofs

During the car chase, two cars hit head to head and the bad guy's 4x4 hits them, is thrown in the air, and is clearly seen to come down hard on the front end. We see the front right wheel buckle and break off the axle. Moments later it's chasing our hero. See more »

Starts off interesting. But even Tobin Bell can't save it.
5 January 2005 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

"Power Play" starts off interesting but it goes down hill fast. The only good actor is Tobin Bell and he has a very small part. Beyond Bell, "Power Play" has no redeeming value or interest. "Power Play" has more earthquakes in a few days than California has in a year. The earthquake scene in the mall is so contrived and completely unbelievable. And all the action scenes look like a bunch of third graders putting on a play. It's awful, simply awful.

Bottom line, if "Power Play" was made in the 60's or 70's it would be considered a poor "B" class movie. The fact that "Power Play" was made in 2001 is really sad. Is there such a thing as a "D" class movie? If so, "Power Play" casts the mold.
