Goofs

Just after Roenick pulls the doc back from the front door after she tried to leave on her own: The lasers lines veers back and forth in much wider angles through the windows than would be coherent with the shooters being so far away that the story indicates. There's even some darting in a very steep angle upwards indicating that the shooters would be sitting few meters away from the building. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jake Roenick: Listen to me. What are we talking about, really? Getting high? No. We're talking about a journey, man. A subconscious safari. A mental expedition, OK, a mind trek. This planet has been raped, pillaged and fucked! And the mind is the only uncharted territory

One of the worst movies I have ever seen. I have a hard time imagining that any of the major actors read the script before accepting their roles. Both Hawk & Fishburne are capable of so much more, have their careers really sunk so low that they have to make this kind of garbage? The characters were such one-dimensional clichés, it's no wonder that the only attempt at character development was a gratuitous shoot out at the beginning which had nothing to do with the rest of the film The story was unbelievable. Scrambled cell phone signals? Calling in helicopter support without anyone else in the department noticing? A forest magically appearing in the middle of inner city Detroit? It's pretty insulting that the producers thought so little of their audience's intellect.
