A mind-blowing thrill ride!
19 November 1998 | by AlwoodSee all my reviews

This one's a mind-blower! Constant suspense and action, along with some of the wildest and most entertaining plot twists I've ever seen in a TV-movie. Especially noteworthy are Stacey Travis and the actor who played the hippie mad scientist. Just when you think you've seen it all, the filmmakers throw in a nuclear blast just for fun! This is a four-star popcorn movie if there ever was one! Great writing makes this one a winner!
