Storyline

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 of 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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Soldiers Memorial is a World War I museum built during the Depression and so neglected that the elevators don't work. It is situated on Chestnut Street in downtown St. Louis, however, which is low-traffic yet double the width of other downtown streets, which means a movie company can show a rented helicopter landing in the middle of downtown without messing up local traffic too much.

Makes "Alien Cargo" look good
11 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the worst of the "shovelware" the Sci-Fi channel shows. The acting is awful, the plot is broken, the characters are contrived, and the end result screams "Mystery Science Theater." This is a true rotten tomato if one ever existed.

On the other hand, if you're a St. Louisan, you're bound to get some entertainment out of this movie, if for no other reason than to see the local landmarks. Of course, you'll be shocked to discover that the St. Louis Science Center is, in fact, a quantum laboratory and that Busch Stadium was apparently not demolished in the way the local news claimed!

The local appeal aside, this is an utterly awful movie that is only watchable if your friends like to make snide remarks during the pitiable conversations. If you like movies like "Reptillian" or "10.5: Apocalypse," watch this film. For the millions of others of you out there, run away. Far away.
