Storyline

Charlie has been in hiding for nearly all her life from a top-secret government fringe group headed by the maniacal John Rainbird, who wants to find and use Charlie as the ultimate weapon of war. Vincent is a young private investigator unwittingly sent to look for Charlie, and evenutally tries to help her escape from Rainbird, who has formed a group of young boys from other research projects -- each with different special abilities -- in a plot to take over the world.

Quotes

John Rainbird: [sitting on street bench] More than I, if truth were told, / Have stood and sweated hot and cold, / And through their reins in ice and fire / Fear contended with desire. Agued once like me were they / I like them shall win my way / Lastly to the bed of mould / Where there's neither heat nor cold. But from my grave across my brow / Plays no wind of healing now, / And fire and ice within me fight / Beneath the suffocating night.

don't bother.
22 June 2002 | by (pa) – See all my reviews

What the heck was this movie?? A rejected script for X-Toddlers?? That is the only thing that i kept asking myself through out the long duration of this horrible thing.

I must admit that i have never read the book, but i am a fan of the original film. This film ALL but erases the existence of it. Let's change the entire ending of a movie and make another and call it a sequel. That is exactly what has happened here. With the additions of the little village of the damned mutant children making it so far out there it was borderline comedy. The two good things out this film were the actress who played Charlie who was actually a good actress, just the wrong film for her. Danny Nucci was good as always. But they could not save this horrid thing.

Stay away from it or you will wish you were set on Fire.
