Storyline

Radio Host, Logan Burnhardt, starts off his show with off-beat questions such as the whereabouts of the Taj Mahal, and why it is only photographed from the front. With listeners calling in on a variety of issues, he soon becomes aware that terrorists have planted chemical bombs in stadiums and crowded areas that make people violent. He subsequently asks his colleague to travel home to ensure that his wife, Gabbi, and child are safe - not knowing that terrorists will soon take over the building and hold him and other colleagues hostage and force them to make a live broadcast of their real agenda.

Goofs

During the whole time Logan is searching his house for his family he is holding a 1911 .45 pistol in case he's attacked. The problem is that the hammer of the pistol is down and it won't fire unless it's cocked, so if he is attacked he can't shoot his attacker. See more »

Quotes

Logan: [the radio station employees are barricading the doors with heavy desks. Lucy walks over and sets a potted plant on top of the desks] And that's supposed to do WHAT?
Lucy: Fuck you!

So bad it's mildly entertaining (for those who can stomach it)
2 February 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is putrid. Not only does it have completely amateur production values ( my niece could have done better with her iphone) but the acting and makeup are an embarrassment. The film's script and storyline are so bad I almost laughed out loud more than a few times. In fact I wondered how I managed to get through through the whole thing, then realized it was one of those films that was so bad it was mildly entertaining. But beware, it might not have the same effect on you.

Pontypool is vastly superior in all areas, I suggest you check that excellent film out before spending your hard earned money on this mess.

Corbin Bernsen should stick to his second-rate TV career rather than direct third-rate movies such as this laugher.
