Storyline

It's 2 A.M. in St. Louis when a routine scientific experiment goes terribly wrong and an explosion shakes the city. A scientific team investigates, clashing with an intergalactic, voltage-devouring creature that vaporizes them. By 7 A.M. a chain of earthquakes is tearing the city apart while a massive swirling black hole is consuming the remains. The alien is devouring every source of electricity it finds and destroying every human who blocks its way. Mass chaos rules as St. Louis is being evacuated. Only a few people, scientist Eric Bryce, his assistant Shannon, and General Ryker comprehend the mortal danger. By midnight, the Pentagon initiates a nuclear attack against the black hole. Bryce has only one hour to find a solution to obliterate the alien and the colossal black hole before mankind is annihilated. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Disappointing
13 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As usual, when dealing with a Syfy Channel movie, I got my hopes up for some memorable schlock - since there is little to no chance of an actual good script being produced - and was let down. Again...

The science was not only not scientific - even to a layman - rather, it was retarded. Please stop assuming we'll buy into anything, we're all veterans of Nova, Discovery Channel, etc., and are not medieval peasants who refuse to bathe and burn people at the stake.

Judd Nelson was hired for his name I imagine, but there was no Breakfast Club intensity in his performance. He basically cake-walked thru this farce. Sleep-walked is properly more accurate.

Don't bother unless you're in kindergarten. Or REALLY drunk...
