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

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...
