Doomsday Satellite is Taken Over and No One is Serious
3 February 2005 | by (Bangkok, Thailand) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a comedy, but unfortunately it was not. It was a simply a stupid movie.

A movie with a look and feel of made-for-television-in-the-public-toilet where the most serious breech of security of a stolen secret code doomsday Osirus satellite causes everybody to act as if they have all the time in the world to catch the clumsy criminal - Ivan the Terrible and another guy named Rausch (sounds like Roach).

So much time they have enough even to cry over a dying comrade to wait for him to die before catching the terrorist and a go to a El Cheapo funeral, go to the restaurant, walk the catwalk, to boot. And to think, they had 72 hours, but looks like they have weeks to capture them.

And the roof scene that was "planned" is not believable. What happens if the "good guys" shot the bad guy in the head before he had a chance to get away jumping from a roof? I mean, if it was planned the bad guy should have jump off the building before getting a chance to shoot.

The names of characters are also silly. There is some humor that the agent Max's full name is Maxwell which reminds me of Maxwell Smart, from the TV comedy Get Smart.

Why the silly secret code chips that doesn't accept radio communication to "self-destruct" when another code is entered to do it? Why did these idiots allow three planes to be shot down including the stealth fighter shot off by the satellite self-defense mechanism? That was - 1 billion dollar boo boo down the drain! But not to worry if you watch the end of the movie, they really have no interest in taking down the satellite! And how about all three planes shot down at over 1 billion dollar? Peanuts! This is not the REAL agenda. The real agenda is really silly and may not be worth the cost! But who cares as long as they make a buck!

Nothing in the story holds up to make me believe this is possible. Also why is it that the Osirus satellite uses conventional missile? I mean, the satellite can have so many missiles before it runs out missile! You can get 100 decoy planes for satellite to shoot down and once it runs out of missiles, you use the REAL stealth plane to shoot the Osirus satellite down later on.

It would make a lot more sense if the satellite uses the old Ronald Reagan, Star Wars Defense, which uses laser beams to shoot down attackers, at least it doesn't have to run out of ammunitions since its x-ray laser/EMF defense mechanism is powered by a fission/fusion device! I don't mind about the story's dramatic contents are as slow as a television soap opera, The Days of Our Lives, but this is ridiculous! Even the explosion of a large gasoline truck would have cause massive fire but it didn't. A reasonable explosion would have been more dignified if it was "planted" or shot into the building for a long distance. That would save the movie producers money in not having to pay rent-a-gasoline truck and the movie would be more cool. At least it shows that the criminal is as intelligent as the viewers of the movies.

Another point is the master criminal, Rausch, is very difficult to find. He is hidden in a huge house partying with hundreds and hundreds on uninivited guests, including Maxwell. Wow, and to think they had to fly all over the world to get this mysterious and elusive man, employing an British MI6 agent who can't speak proper English.

Oh well, look on the bright side this is not the worse movie I have ever watched, but this IS THE MOST STUPIDEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN. I will not give you the "surprise" ending as this will spoil the already rotten movie as it is. The clue to the "surprise" ending is the true Hidden Agenda, and hence the title. Again what is that Hidden Agenda you have to find out for yourself. What I can say is the Hidden Agenda was not worth the 3 planes (one of them is a stealth S-71) which cost the U.S. government 1 billion in peanuts.
