A decent movie, but not great
19 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is worth looking at if you can catch it on HBO or something without too much bother.

*** Warning: I talk about the ending of the movie, so if you're going to be bothered, don't read further. ***

I found some of the movie a little annoying because it builds suspense for too long at times without really having anything much going on. The final scenes where they are trying to lower the rods in the nuclear reactor just go on for too long--especially since there are a bunch of people in the reactor room who just stand around and gawk instead of helping the one guy actually lower the rods.

Even though it has flaws, this movie does well with a small budget and is still much more interesting than a lot of hollywood movies with much bigger budgets. It's not a classic, but it's worth seeing if you just want something to watch for the night.
