Thumbs up for Combustion
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this made for TV movie very entertaining. In fact, I have purchased it on DVD to watch again whenever I want. I agree that this movie is for entertaining purposes and not mind thinking, but with that said, I thought the plot was well established. I liked that Joe Lando's character, Scott Daniels, was an intelligent man and not some "like duh!" man who didn't know how to do his job. I liked the comradely between Scott and his co-worker. And I thought the special effects were good for such a low-budget movie. The movie is somewhat predictable, but still fun to watch. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes "disaster" movies, or is just a fan of one or more of the stars in the cast. I for one watched the movie because it starred Joe Lando, but found myself intrigued by some of the other characters.
