When the hospital assassin sets himself on fire, the shot of the exterior of his car before it explodes clearly shows the driver's-side doors have been removed and then balanced back in place to allow them to blow off easily. See more »

1998 Goodtimes DVD release omits several sound effects for some unknown reason, including the stinger when the assassin appears to watch Ellie and Challis enter the factory, and the dial tone when Challis and Teddy are on the phone to each other before the above scene. Additionally, when Walter Jones is in the hospital explaining how he first encountered Harry Grimbridge, an overhead page is heard stating "Miss Scott call admitting". This appears in the version that sporadically airs on Cinemax, but not on the 2001 Goodtimes release. See more »
I just finished (fast-forwarding) this horrible, horrible mountain of crap of a "movie", and a great congrats to everyone involved; apart from "Battlefield Earth", this is the only movie I've seen so far, bad enough to make me cry!
It's boring, ridiculous, amateurish, pointless... I could go on. What I can't do, is find a single redeeming feature. It's not even ridiculous in a comical sense. The first half hour felt like half a day, and then it got worse.
Just to be clear, after reading other comments: I don't care if Michael Myers is in the movie or not. Neither do I care whether this movie's name is "Halloween" or not. It sucks rocks whatever you want to call it. From the teeth-grittingly annoying commercial jingle to the crappy robots in the end, it's just... I don't think there's a word for it, but it's bad!
If you treasure your time, take warning, and stay away from it.
