For Eric Roberts completests only .......
11 January 2014 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Extremely tepid and predictable, "Power 98" has Eric Roberts at his slimy best, manipulating fellow DJ Jason Gedrick for his own purposes. Seeing Roberts sporting a short haircut, instead of his usual mane, is probably the most shocking element of the film. For Eric Roberts fans this might be tolerable entertainment, all others should steer clear. The conclusion especially is a real stretch, and what precedes it not much better. There is brief nudity, very little action, and a story that lacks momentum and credibility. For me, the best part was in the beginning with Roberts and Gedrick doing there "shock jock" routine, after that, it is a steady slide downhill. - MERK
