Did You Know?


According to Quinn's presentation Gravitonium's atomic number is 123, and its atomic mass is 308. Both these numbers are higher than anything on the Periodic Table in reality. See more »


(at around 9 mins) There is a sound effect for a pump action shotgun cycling off screen. The scene edit cuts back to Agent Ward holding a side by side double barrel (breech loading) shotgun. See more »


Ian Quinn: [about Gravitonium] I finally found it. And now we get to play with it.
Dr. Franklin Hall: Do you remember in all our talks on Orchard Street the part where it's very, very dangerous?

Mission Impossible ???
7 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

So far this series is not doing anything to me. This episode is like an update of the classic Mission Impossible TV series. One of the members infiltrates the baddie's hideout and things start to go wrong. Then the ending was like the last scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark, with the item being locked up with many other secrets. Yaaaawwwn. Nick Fury has not shown up yet, and no super heroes. The whole thing is boring. its nothing like the comics ( films never are like the comics ). I shall not be watching any future episodes as i have better things to do with my time. Maybe watch episodes of Scooby Do. Film companies have yet to realize yet that if you want to grab peoples attention, do it from the first episode, not after 13 episodes.
