Trivia

The scene where CJ meets his fate wasn't intended to be a rain scene, as there was no rain during the actual blackout on August 14th 2003. Production halted several times, in hopes that it would stop. Everytime the rain stopped and the cameras started rolling, it would start to rain again. Finally, the director decided it was destined to be shot this way, thus adding a dramatic effect to the scene. See more »

Not good at all. Other Reviews very inaccurate !
17 February 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

After seeing some good reviews on IMDb For this pointless waste of time i decided to watch it with a group of mates.

BIG MISTAKE!

I want my sat night back, but more, i want the trust i also lost with my friends back, as i will probably never be allowed to choose a movie again.

Don't get me wrong, this movie looked pretty good at the start. Building up characters for the audience to slightly get connected to, Only to lead to absolutely nothing. I was expecting to see another LA riot. But what you get is about as exciting as the dramas in the Brady Bunch movie. This movie dragged on building up its climax only fizzel out just when things looked good.

This would barely make it as a mid-day movie. It gets a 3 because the acting was pretty good.

But having a black-out in your own home would be just as exciting.
