Storyline

Jason tragically lost his young son when their SUV exploded. Now fighting as a soldier in Iraq, the suicide bombings that occur around him on a daily basis constantly remind him of losing his son. An army scientist approaches Jason about an experimental virus that would create a squad of suicide bombers they could use against the enemy. Uncertain if he has already been infected by the virus, Jason must struggle to decipher which explosions are real and which are in his head. Written by Anonymous

A chip off the ol' Busey
12 October 2013 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

This would have been a fine, creative essay on war, grief and PTSD, if it weren't for the stupid "mad scientist" plot device that screams that the writer and director had no faith at all in their ability to craft a fine, creative essay on war, grief and PTSD.

The production values are mid to high, though, and Jake Busey, while creepily looking exactly like his father circa 1975, has a greater acting range than papa has displayed in his later, regrettable "Gingerdead Man" career.

Here, Jake turns out a sensitive, yet fearless performance reminiscent of "Big Wednesday"-era Gary, and it's a pleasure to watch.

Just wish he were given a better movie to perform in.
