Did You Know?

Trivia

In a wide shot of the plane dragging the purple lightening ball over a mountain, you can spot down in the bottom left corner of the screen, for the first three frames, a tiny image of "The Grinch". Artists snuck it in as a joke, because the mountain looked similar to the mountains from the Ron Howard film. See more »

Goofs

Echolson calls the security guard "sergeant" several times during their discussion. The guard then picks up the phone and identifies himself as "Major Jim Pembry". Also, "Pembry's" name tag says "T. Becks" See more »

Pitiful
13 November 2004 | by (Orlando, FL) – See all my reviews

Is Michael Ironside so desperate he must resort to rubbish like this, which is so beneath him?

The plot was amazingly cookie cutter and predictable but that wasn't the worst of it. The science was some of the most pitifully inaccurate I've seen in a movie which was not intentionally a parody. You might as well try to put out forest fires with a giant vacuum cleaner which sucks them up only to deposit them in a cold climate to help warm all the little children suffering from the cold.

Where is MST3K when you need it?

Toss this drivel in the trash heap. There's no redeeming value here for anyone.
