In the near future, a virus has infected everyone on the planet, and Absolon is a drug that everyone must take to stay alive. One corporation controls the drug. Murchison is the leader of this firm.

Soon Norman realizes that he's in over his head, as hitmen are gunning for him. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Goofs

When Scott turns on the gas in Greer's apartment, he turns the valve perpendicular to the pipeline. That would actually turn a gas line off. The valve handle must be parallel to the pipeline to be in the on position. See more »

Meh

I suppose I would say it's worth a watch once, but it's not a movie I would ever want to watch again.

I like Lambert, and he was OK (as he usually is), but Phillips was a little over the top, and Perlman was really sub par. He's usually pretty good, but I have seen him stink a couple of times and this is one of those times. Of course, it didn't help that the script really reeked the place up.

I would put this movie in the same league as those iffy Scifi channel movies, but with a few better actors and a really hot babe.

The story is not bad, but there are zero effects and "futuristic" sets. That's OK though 'cause there are lots of decent scifi movies without effects and good sets. However, the poor script and questionable performances from some of the actors mean you might watch this movie on TV for free, but don't buy or rent it.

Once again I must point out that this movie does not qualify for "the worst movies ever made" category. Anyone who tells you that hasn't seen very many movies.
