In St. Louis, the scientists Dr. William Hauser, Shannon Muir and Kent accidentally create a black hole during an experiment. While investigating the phenomenon, Dr. Hauser and Kent die and the army comes to their laboratory under the command of General Ryker. Shannon tries to call the prominent Dr. Eric Bryce, but the scientist does not answer the phone since he misses his daughter Kayley after the divorce to his ex-wife Elizabeth. When he is contacted, he comes to the laboratory and soon he finds that the experiment has also unleashed a creature that feeds off energy. The Powers That Be wants a nuclear attack against the creature, but Eric warns that the action will increase the black hole. He also believes that the creature may be destroyed and the black hole closed if they are attracted to each other. However, only General Ryker supports his theory while General Tate wants to bomb the location. Written by

About three minutes into the film you can see Windows Media Player playing the animation of starting the experiment. See more »
A little after the collapse of the Midwestern Quantum Research Laboratory, Gen. Ryker reaches Town Hall. At that time, Director Hayes is watching a news report while having a conversation with his secretary (about 44:10). The female newsreader starts, "Another update; sources at both the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security are now officially describing this dark mass we're seeing just outside the downtown are of St. Louis as a black hole." Hayes' secretary informs him about Gen. Ryker reaching the new command center. At this time, the audio for the news flash finishes and then can be heard starting once again with "Another update; sources at both the..."; an obvious indication of a prerecorded segment that was timed and set to loop while the scene was filmed.

The title was perfect! I was expecting a lot, but all I got is a lame scenario with a weak plot, lame actors, and the creature! "The entity" That was awful.
There's no doubt, it's not the movie that I'll watch over and over. Besides, it was pretty educational. I can now recognize poor stories in the fly and these are some tips : 1) If actors seem to read their script to act, just stop watching ; 2) If you got a lot of definitions, to explain obvious stuff, also literally read, just cut the damn movie off; 3) If you see a creature supposed to come from nowhere, following a logical path, I'll say it again : just-cut-it-off.
The theme was interesting. May be if they've concentrate on characters and creature development instead of trying to look scientific, making some theory heard and said takes form This movie shouldn't even exist.
Whatever, it reveals what American people are expecting from their government facing the unknown : nuclear bombing, a little good talk to morn the loss, and right after explain that it was a painful but a necessary decision
Can't we put negative score to punish the weakest stuff?
