Storyline

Set in the future, a group of terrorists with an android leader storm a hospital when the President's daughter is inside, taking her hostage. To find a way of freeing her, the police decide to consult the architect who designed the building, but he's currently in jail for some crime, and the punishment of the future is to be frozen solid for one's sentence. The cops accidentally thaw out the wrong guy, a football player who decides to keep the mistake a secret and help the police in exchange for his freedom. Will he be able to defeat the terrorists and rescue the hostages, despite not knowing the first thing about architecture? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This Really Is An Awful Film
8 January 2013 | by davidwileSee all my reviews

Hey folks, Another review was titled, "2.5????? u've gotta be kidding." I might have asked the same question. I think 2.5 was overly generous.

I like films, and I usually tell folks the reason I like a film is because it is a good story. This simply is not a good story. I never heard of the film until I saw it was playing on one of the Encore or Starz channels the other night. When I saw Meg Foster's name, I decided to record it in spite of what the storyline stated. I figured anything with Meg Foster was worth a look.

Boy, was I wrong. It just ruined my memories of Meg Foster. There is nothing here about needing to suspend your disbelief for the story. There simply is no story here. This film's story would make comic books seem like true classic literature.

Best wishes, Dave Wile
